  • 2 medium sweet potatoes (1 cup, mashed)
  • 1 ⅓ cup almond butter
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup chopped chocolate or more


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Use a fork to poke holes into the sweet potatoes, then place them on a microwave-safe dish and microwave for 6-7 minutes until soft. Then, slice them down the center and wait a few minutes for them to cool off before scooping out the sweet potato flesh and discarding the skin. Alternatively, you can peel and roast the sweet potato in the oven for 30 minutes.
  • Use a potato masher to mash the cooked sweet potato and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk almond butter and syrup together; then, add the cocoa and the mashed sweet potato. Last, stir in the chopped chocolate.
  • Line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper (or grease with coconut oil) and pour batter into the pan. Bake brownies for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Wait 20 minutes before cutting the brownies and enjoy!



-Storage: store these brownies in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 4 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
-The recipe says to microwave the sweet potatoes, but if you don't own a microwave, you can cook them over the stovetop or roast them in the oven instead. 
-These brownies are both vegan AND paleo, as long as you use dairy free chocolate chips/chopped chocolate.
