If there’s one thing I love, it’s sweet potato brownies.
…Just kidding. If there’s one thing I really love, it’s
recipes with just 4 ingredients, and recipes that don’t leave you
feeling guilty afterward. These sweet potato brownies are actually
good for you because sweet potatoes are the main ingredient and
they’re made with zero refined sugar.

Here’s the thing: I don’t crave sugar nearly as much as I
used to. But, when I do, I prefer things that are sweetened with
maple syrup/honey/dates rather than a ton of sugar. I know it
sounds insane, but it’s true. These sweet potato brownies are
fudgy and moist and loaded with chocolate so you can’t even taste
the sweet potato!

WHY THESE SWEET POTATO BROWNIES ARE THE BEST

  • They’re made with just 4 ingredients
  • The main ingredient is sweet potato, so they really are
    healthy
  • There’s no refined sugar–just maple syrup and almond
    butter

SWEET POTATO BROWNIE INGREDIENTS

  • Sweet potato: 2 medium or 1 large
  • Cocoa powder: Unsweetened
  • Almond butter: Go for the most inexpensive
    creamy almond butter
  • Maple syrup: I know it’s more expensive, but
    real maple syrup is going to make these taste even better (by
    “real” maple syrup, I mean syrup with no additives)

HOW TO MAKE FLOURLESS SWEET POTATO BROWNIES

Cook the sweet potatoes: Use a fork to pierce
several holes into the sweet potatoes, then place them on a
microwave-safe dish and cook for 6-7 minutes until they’re soft.
Then, slice them down the middle and wait a few minutes for them to
cool off before scooping out the sweet potato and discarding the
skins. After that, use a potato masher to mash the sweet potatoes
until they’re no longer lumpy (or as best you can).

Whisk ingredients together: Start by whisking
the syrup and almond butter together, then add the cocoa and last,
stir in the mashed sweet potato. At this point, you can fold a
handful of chocolate chips into the batter as well.

Line or grease baking dish: Everyone has their
own preferred method on whether to grease a baking dish or line it
with parchment paper. Personally, I like using coconut oil to grease the baking
dish, but either method works!

ARE THESE BROWNIES VEGAN AND/OR PALEO?

Yes! They’re vegan because there’s no eggs in them, and
they’re paleo because there’s no flour or refined sugar.

HOW SHOULD I STORE THESE BROWNIES?

You should store these flourless brownies in an air-tight
container at room temperature for up to 3 days. Or, you can cover
and freeze them for up to 3 months.
