Things are about to get serious, because brownie talk is always something to take seriously.

I’m serious about chocolate in all it’s forms, but brownies will always be next level- if ya know what I mean.

The fudgey gooeyness on the inside and the caramely corners around the edge of the pan that gets all candy-meets-cake-like.

It would take some serious will-power to resist a good brownie.

The aroma.

The chocolate on chocolate.

And the first bite… it’s all too good for any sane human being to resist.

If you love chocolate, you have come to the right place.

And if you love chocolate brownies with a twist- you’ve definitely come to the right place!

These healthy homemade brownies have a secret ingredient hidden in them.

Can you guess what it is?

Underneath all those fudgey layers and chocolate is our secret ingredient: sweet potatoes!

Instead of using flour in this recipe, I decided to go flourless and swap the grains for raw minced sweet potato and almond butter.

The result is a flawless texture and taste that can compete with any of the big-time brownies.

Healthy, fast, and easy to make- these homemade brownies are rich in flavor and whipped up in only minutes!

How to make easy homemade brownies

If you don’t have a food processor for all your brownie needs- I suggest making the small investment!

The food processor is my hands and feet in the kitchen…

Okay, maybe not my feet, but for sure my hands!

I just can’t get over all the beautiful deliciousness going on.

After shooting multiple recipes and videos today, I was savage for a chocolate fix after my break!

More than ready for a boost-me-up of chocolate and sugar- these brownies hit the spot.

And if you’re concerned about dreaming about them all night and craving them for breakfast- don’t worry, we’ve all been there. 🙂

I’ve gotta pause brownie talk and give a quick blurb of personal gushy stuff real quick…

This week has been filled with SO many encouraging grab-the-tissue-box-I’m-not-crying-you’re-crying-moments and I just have to say, THANK YOU!

All the letters, emails, and messages don’t go unnoticed and I feel particularly blessed to be able to do life with you guys.

Thanks for thinking my recipes are cool and for sticking around to write beautiful letters to me, it sure means a lot!

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325. Line a 6" square baking dish with parchment paper. You can also use a 8" baking dish, but the cooking time will be less, because the batter will be more spread out more, so watch the cooking time.
  2. In a food processor combine ingredients (except chocolate chips) until smooth. Then stir in chocolate chips by hand or save for later and sprinkle on top before baking.
  3. Pour batter into a 6" baking dish lined with parchment paper and bake on 325F for 25 minutes. Then remove and allow to cool to set up before serving (they will hold together better this way).

    Kaylie, you have a knack for making amazing desserts. Drooling over here! These look so rich and fudgy, just the way a brownie should be. I can’t wait to try this recipe!
    Thank you for sharing! 🙂 I’ll make sure to let you know how they turn out.

    This might be a dumb question but for the sweet potatoes, are you just cutting them raw and then putting them in the food processor or are you steaming them at all first?

    These look incredible! I don’t have gellatin and I was wondering if there’s something that would be comparable, maybe chia gel or psyllium husks combined with water? I’d love your opinion on a substitute! thank you in advance 🙂

    Hey Kaylie, Thanks for your amazing, creative recipes. Do you think one can use sweet potato flour instead of the raw sweet potato, or will the brownies be too dry?

    I just used all my sweet potatoes the other day, prior to seeing this recipe, to make fries, and now I’m all out of it…such a bummer. But, I do have a can of cut sweet potato, so can I substitute the raw sweet potato with a can of cut sweet potato, do you think it will still work? I’m too lazy to get out in this cold weather to get a raw sweet potato but I can’t stop drooling over these brownies.

    These were phenomenal!!! Now I’m hooked on sweet potato as the base and will be trying some more of your desserts. Thanks!

    These look divine! Looking forward to making these this weekend as a sweet treat for Super Bowl scrummies! Just confirming that you use semi-sweet chocolate chips and not dark chocolate? Thank you in advance.

    Just made these brownies and they are unbelievably delicious! So light and fluffy, like I used cake flour. You would never know they’re both flourless and contain sweet potato. You’re a genius!

    Just made these and I am IN LOVE. So good, so moist. I’m not even a huge brownie fan but these are a game changer. Any tips on how to store them? Do they need to be refrigerated?

    Hi Kalie, I am making these for a “healthy treat” party at work. There’s a $50 gift card on the line! 🙂 Will peanut butter change the taste or consistency? I’m trying to use what I have in my pantry. Thank you!

    Sorry one more question. In the video you say sea salt but only baking soda is on the list? Do you use both and if so is it also 1/2 tsp of salt same as the baking soda?
    Thanks!

    These look phenomenal, Kaylie! Just wondering if you could use canned pumpkin in place of sweet potatoes? Hmm. Might have to try??

    I forgot the coconut oil but these were still awesome! Not overly sweet, but decadent. I also changed it up by putting them in muffin tins (lined with silicone) and put a caramel in the middle of a few of them. I think there is a lot of grace in this recipe (I didn’t measure the almond butter, sweet potato, cocoa powder, or maple syrup) and it still turned out great! Plus you can’t beat being able to dump all of the ingredients into the food processor (and you don’t even have to peel the sweet potato?!?)!! This recipe is perfect!

      Hi Andrea, you might be able to leave out the gelatin and use flax eggs, but I’m not sure on the results- they will be different for sure, but it might work… I haven’t tried. 🙂

    I made these because they looked soooo good and moist, but for some reason, mine came out a bit dry, still delicious, but you kinda need to wash it down with some coffee 😉 I did some substituting though, so I think it might have been that… I didn’t have almond butter so I added cashew butter and instead of gelatin I added Agar Agar. Could that have been the reason? Oh I also made double the amount at once because I had too much sweet potato.

    Going to try these this weekend. Wondering if adding blended dates or chopped cherries could be used in place of the maple syrup for those who are concerned about added sugar? Can’t wait to try this. Thank you!

    Maybe my food processor is just not strong enough?? But my sweet potato did not grind, at all. I had to stop and cut it up a few times and it just never became the texture and size pictured above 🙁

    Hi, i have two questions. Will it make a difference if i cooked the potatos and mashed them up before using them in the recipe? And can I substitute the maple syrup with a pure caramel syrup( a homemade caramel syrup made with only sugar and water)?Maple syrup tends to be expensive and hard to find where I live.

      Kaylie

      Hi Nadine, yes- cooked/mashed sweet potatoes won’t work the same. You can probably replace maple syrup with caramel syrup, but I haven’t tried, so I couldn’t say for sure on the results- it sure sounds yummy!

    Going to bake these tomorrow and so excited (made your paleo sweet potato chocolate cake yesterday and it was a huge hit!). I just bought gelatin for the first time, and don’t have a clue how to bake with it. Do I prepare it according to the label directions and then add it in to the food processor? Or just add the powder to the food procesor? thanks!!

      Hi Nicole, I don’t know that that would work… a food processor is really best. If you don’t have one, then maybe mincing by hand (it will take a bit of time to get it really fine though).

    These are ahmazing! Who would have thought these combined would make such a totally AHmazing brownie! I don’t have a 6 inch pan, so I made it in a 5 x 7. I couldn’t wait until it was cool to sample…
    thanks for a healthy brownie recipe!
    I’ll definitely be looking at some of your other recipes

    Just made them. Used peanutbutter instead of the almond butter and honey instead of mayple and the turned out really good. I used a pwdered gelatin, is that the one you used? Anyways, LOVE them! Thanks !

    I made these without the gelatine and I used an egg replaced and these turned out amazingly well. So moist delicious and easy to make. Great recipe:)

    Made these today. Used cashew butter as my nut butter. Skipped the gelatin because I didn’t have any. Also didn’t use eggs because I am too lazy to make a flax egg or egg replacement. ( sorry for changing so much) but… These came out so good! Very fudgey and super chocolatey! I’m trying to not eat the entire pan right now.
