Sweet Potato Brownies

These sweet potato brownies are a sneaky healthy treat! The recipe is super simple to pull together, and you can't taste the sweet potato at all!

  • 1 medium raw sweet potato, peeled and grated (about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup real maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 heaped tsp baking powder
  • 1/2-3/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder, depending on how dark you prefer (I do 1/2 cup)
  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour


Preheat oven to 175C. Mix together the vanilla, maple syrup, and coconut oil in a large bowl. Squeeze out the liquid from the grated sweet potato and then add it to the bowl with eggs and mix well.

Now add the dry ingredients, combining well. Pour into a greased baking dish or cake tin.

Bake for 20 minutes, and check with a skewer to make sure the brownie stays moist. The center should be slightly gooey.

Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes. You can turn turn out or slice and serve in the tin.
