These healthy sweet potato brownies are soft, gooey, and oh-so-chocolatey. Prepare this recipe for your friends, and thank us later. They are pretty much impossible to stop eating once you taste these sweet brownies. These are naturally vegan & gluten-free; it is very similar to avocado brownies.

Even though sweet potatoes are not the "norm" in a brownie recipe, they make a perfect substitution for your flax eggs. They bind the brownies together and keep them moist and rich in texture. They are a good source of beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in the body. As we all know, vitamin A is vital for maintaining a healthy immune system and helps reduce gut inflammation.

To prepare these delicious sweet potato brownies, you are going to need: mashed sweet potatoes, almond butter, cocoa powder, coconut sugar, gluten-free flour, baking powder, vanilla extract, salt, and dark chocolate chips. Start by preheating your oven to a temperature of about 350ºF and line a pan with parchment paper. Combine your almond butter, mashed sweet potato, cocoa powder, coconut sugar, flour, baking powder, vanilla extract, and salt in a large bowl. Stir well until you notice a smooth batter.

Next, fold in the chocolate chips and use a spatula to smoothen the top. Bake until you notice the edges looking dry, and the center puffed up; this should take about 35 to 40 minutes. Allow your brownies to cool before you slice them, or else they will be too soft.

You can take these potato brownies on their own, and you can also elevate it with a scoop of vegan ice cream. We recommend coffee and vanilla salted caramel ice cream as a great flavor pairing.
