They also have significantly fewer calories than conventional brownies, which can easily have the calories of an entire meal. But also as a dessert they are ideal. You should definitely give them a try!
Sweet Potato – a Versatile Tuber
Whether savory or sweet, sweet potatoes are versatile. Sweet potato puree, sweet potato soup, baked sweet potato or even crispy sweet potato fries from the oven: The variations seem to be countless. So today it’s time for the sweet version: sweet potato brownies.
Some Ingredients Can Also Be Substituted
By the way, you can also vary the ingredients very well. If you like it sweeter, take more coconut sugar, for example. Of course, you can also use other sugar alternatives such as maple syrup, date syrup or agave syrup.
If you don’t like peanut butter, you can of course substitute it for any nut butter or just leave it out altogether.
How Long Do the Sweet Potato Brownies Last?
The brownies will last for about 1 week in the refrigerator. Small tip: Let them rest overnight in the refrigerator so that they become firmer and much juicier.
How Do I Prepare the Vegan Sweet Potato Brownies?
First peel the sweet potato and cut it into coarse pieces.
Cover the sweet potato chunks with plenty of water in a pot and cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes until soft. If you poke them with a fork and they are soft, they are good!
Now preheat the oven to ~ 350°F (180°C).
Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Mash the soft sweet potato pieces with a fork.
Then grease an ovenproof loaf pan with coconut oil and pour the dough into it. Briefly smooth everything with a fork.
Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes.
Tip: After you have taken the brownies out of the oven, they can still be very soft. It is therefore possible that the batter will stick to your fork if you prick the brownies while they are baking.
I would keep them in the fridge overnight, it makes them firmer and even juicier!
