Sweet Potato Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Recipe characteristics

  • Quick and easy to make
  • Delicious, rich, fudge-like texture
  • Loaded with flavor
  • Refined sugar free
  • High in fiber
  • Whole-food plant-based recipe
  • Dietary requirements: vegan (dairy-free, egg-free), gluten-free, and soy-free.

Notes on ingredients

You can find a complete list of ingredients with exact amounts and instructions in the recipe card below.
  • Sweet potato puree: Sweet potatoes need to be baked and made into a puree in advance.  Check How to make sweet potato puree for instructions.
  • Peanut butter: You can add smooth or chunky peanut butter (my favorite). For a peanut-free recipe, swap it for almond or cashew butter.
  • Oat flour: Oat flour is naturally gluten-free but if you have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, stick to certified gluten-free oat flour to avoid possible cross-contamination.
  • Raw cacao powder: I used raw cacao powder for this recipe as it provides more nutrition but regular cocoa powder works just as well.
  • Date syrup: You can substitute it with maple syrup. I prefer date syrup because it contains more than twice the potassium, calcium, and magnesium levels of maple syrup. Plus, date syrup has a sweeter taste and lower glycemic index.
  • Rice milk: Substitute it with cashew milk, soy milk, oat milk or almond milk. If you are not vegan, you can use regular milk.

Sweet potatoes all year round

5 reasons to love sweet potatoes:

  • Sweet potatoes are inexpensive and available year-round.
  • They make an excellent addition to a healthy diet and provide a number of health benefits.
  • The orange fleshed varieties are the most common. Other common varieties are white, yellow, and purple (my personal favorite).
  • Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta carotene, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber.
  • This versatile ingredient can be prepared in both sweet and savory dishes.

How to make it

You can find a complete list of ingredients with exact amounts and instructions in the recipe card below.

Step 1

Preheat oven to 180° C. Line the square pan (22 x 22 cm) with baking paper.

Step 2

In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: oat flour, cacao powder, baking powder, and a pinch of baking soda.

Note: If you have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, always make sure to buy certified gluten-free oat flour and white rice flour to avoid possible cross-contamination.

Step 3

Add sweet potato puree (check How to make sweet potato puree for instructions), peanut butter, date syrup, and rice milk, and mix everything together with a hand mixer until combined. Adjust sweetness if needed.

Step 4

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for approx. 40-45 minutes ( or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out almost clean).

Step 5

Remove from the oven and let it cool fully before serving. Slice and serve.

Tips and how-tos

How to roast sweet potatoes
  • Preheat oven to 200°C.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Wash orange-flashed sweet potatoes thoroughly and pat them dry with a dishtowel.
  • Place on a baking sheet and bake for 40-50 minutes (depending on the size) or until sweet potatoes are fork-tender.
  • Check at 35 minutes by inserting a fork into the center. They should be soft. If not, return to the oven and check again in 10 minutes.
  • Let them cool down a bit before peeling.
How to make sweet potato puree
  • Place the skinless sweet potato flesh in a blender or food processor.
  • Process for 30 seconds, or until smooth (you may need to scrape the sides down a time or two to get all of the sweet potato pureed).

Is the sweet potato cooked before making the purée?
