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: Chunky peanut butter is my favorite. 
  • Almond flour: Almond flour is made from blanched (peeled) almonds and it is not the same as almond meal. Compared to almond meal, almond flour has a finer texture and lighter color. It adds texture and a subtle nutty flavor. 
  • Coconut sugar: It can be subbed with brown sugar or regular white sugar.
  • Dark chocolate: Use dark chocolate with 75-80 percent cocoa solids.
  • Flaxseeds: You can use either golden or brown freshly ground flaxseeds.
  • Rice milk: Substitute it with cashew milk, soy milk, oat milk or almond milk. If you are not vegan, you can use regular milk.

How to make it

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

NOTE: Batter and dough made with room temperature ingredients will yield the best results.

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: almond flour, coconut sugar, ground flaxseeds, and baking powder.

Step 3

In a small pot, melt chocolate over low heat, stirring constantly. Once the chocolate is melted, remove the pot from the heat immediately.

Step 4

Add sweet potato puree (check How to make sweet potato puree for instructions), peanut butter, and rice milk to the bowl with dry ingredients, and mix everything together with a hand mixer until combined.

Step 5

Add melted chocolate into the batter and stir well until all is well combined.  Adjust sweetness if needed.

Step 6

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for approx. 40-45 minutes. After 30 minutes, loosely cover the brownies with a sheet of aluminum foil to prevent the top of the brownies from burning.

Step 7

Remove from the oven and let it cool fully. Put the brownies in the fridge for another hour or two before slicing. Note: It’s important that the brownies are fully cooled before slicing.

Step 8

Sprinkle with cacao powder, 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 skinless baked sweet potato flesh into 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).
