Vegan Sweet Potato Brownies

Every once in a while, it's good to sit down with a glass of warm ginger tea and a stack of warm brownies. 

Have you been there? Maybe you like milk? That's good too. Some warm almond milk with honey or maple syrup is delicious. 

So I'm sharing a recipe with you today that's easy, fun to make and delicious. Better yet, it works for any occasion or no special occasion at all. 

Here we go: 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sweet potato (cook a large sweet potato in a crockpot overnight)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup (more for desired sweetness) 
  • 1/2 cup almond butter or peanut butter (either works well)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ Tbsp melted coconut oil 
  • 1/2 cup vegan cocoa powder 
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup oat flour (You can always make your own at home)
  • 1/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1/4 walnuts (optional)

Method

  • Mash your cooked sweet potatoes
  • Measure out a cup and place in mixing bowl
  • Set your oven to heat at 350 degrees (this is so quick you will have plenty of time to put all your ingredients in a mix to get in your oven)
  • Add in maple syrup, melted coconut oil, vanilla extra and nut butter. Mix to combine well
  • Add cacao powder, sea salt, and baking powder then stir to combine. Then add oat flour and stir until a thick. Fold in walnuts
  • Scrape into baking dish, top with chocolate chips and bake for 25-30 minutes
  • Test with a toothpick until it comes out clean

**** Brownies taste best the second day when everything has marinated together really well, but they are still good immediately after, so try it both ways. 

 

Enjoy!
