Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Yield 12 - 16 brownies


  • 3/4 cup sweet potato puree
  • 1 cup peanut or almond butter, or allergy-friendly sub
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 6 tbsp flour (Oat, white, or spelt flour work. Readers reported success with almond flour)
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips + more for the top, optional
  • 2/3 cup sugar (for sugar free, try these Keto Brownies)
  • 6 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  • If using homemade sweet potato puree, see how to make it above. To make the brownies, start by preheating the oven to 325 F. Line an 8-inch pan with parchment, or grease well. If not easily stir-able, gently heat nut butter to soften. Whisk it with the sweet potato and vanilla until smooth. Stir all remaining ingredients together (making sure the salt and baking soda are evenly incorporated), then pour dry into wet. Stir to form a batter. Smooth into the baking pan, scooping out all traces of batter. Use a second sheet of parchment to really smooth everything down. Bake 20 minutes. They should look underdone when you take them out. The brownies firm up as they cool. If for some reason yours are too gooey after cooling, loosely cover and refrigerate a few hours. Frost if desired.
