For the Sweet Potato Puree:

  1. Two medium-sized sweet potatoes
  2. Two tablespoons water

For the Brownies:

  1. 1 cup sweet potato puree (from the above preparation)
  2. 1/2 cup almond butter (or any nut butter of choice)
  3. 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  4. 1/2 cup maple syrup or honey
  5. Two large eggs
  6. One teaspoon of vanilla extract
  7. 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  8. 1/2 cup almond flour
  9. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  10. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  11. 1 cup dark chocolate chips or chunks


Prepare the Sweet Potato Puree:

Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

Wash and pierce the sweet potatoes with a fork.

Place them on a baking sheet and bake for 45-60 minutes or until soft.

Once cooled, scoop out the flesh and blend it with two tablespoons of water until smooth. Set aside.

Preheat the Oven:

Adjust the oven temperature to 350°F (175°C).

Grease and line a baking pan (8×8 inches) with parchment paper.

Create the Brownie Batter:

In a mixing bowl, combine the sweet potato puree, almond butter, melted coconut oil, maple syrup (or honey), eggs, and vanilla extract.

Mix until well combined.

Incorporate Dry Ingredients:

Sift in cocoa powder, almond flour, baking soda, and salt.

Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture until a smooth batter forms.

Add Chocolate Chips:

Fold in the dark chocolate chips or chunks, ensuring an even distribution throughout the batter.

Bake to Fudgy Perfection:

Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it evenly.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs (not wet batter).

Cool and Set:

Allow the brownies to cool in the pan for at least 15 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

This helps the brownies set and intensifies their fudgy texture.

Slice and Serve:

Once cooled, slice the Fudgy Sweet Potato Brownies into squares or rectangles.

Serve on a decorative platter, ready to delight your taste buds.

Optional Garnishes:

Enhance the presentation by dusting the brownies with a sprinkle of cocoa powder or topping them with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Store and Share:

Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for an extra fudgy chill.

Share these delightful treats with friends, family, or anyone you’d like to join in your 1-year celebration.
