1 cup(s)
peanut or almond butter
3/4 cup(s)
cooked, pureed sweet potatoes
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1/2 cup(s)
all purpose flour
1/2 cup(s)
cocoa powder
2/3 cup(s)

1/2 cup(s)

1/3 cup(s)

Directions 6 steps | 60 Minutes

Step 1

Preheat oven to 325°F. Line an 8-inch pan with parchment paper and spray with a non-stick cooking spray. Measure and prep all ingredients.

Step 2

Gently heat nut butter in a saucepan over low heat until it softens and is easy to stir. Transfer to a bowl and whisk together the warm nut butter with the sweet potato puree and vanilla extract.

Step 3

In a large separate bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder and baking soda. Add the sugar and salt and whisk until combined.

Step 4

Combine the dry ingredient mixture into the sweet potato mixture using a spatula, then fold in the chocolate chips and pecans. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth evenly with the spatula.

Step 5

Bake on the center oven rack for 23 minutes. The sweet potato brownies will firm as they cool.

Step 6

Let cool completely and cut into 9 squares. Enjoy!


Notes:

  1. To prepare sweet potato puree, peel and cut sweet potatoes into cubes and put into a pot with cold unsalted water. Bring to a boil and reduce to medium heat. Cook until fork-tender and blend the potatoes in a food processor until smooth. Alternatively, you can use a potato ricer. The puree should be a very smooth consistency to avoid lumps in the sweet potato brownies.
