  • 1 cup Mashed Sweet Potato
  • ½ cup Smooth Nut Butter of Choice (I used Almond Butter, for those with nut allergies, try using SunButter)
  • 3 tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • ¼ cup Cocoa Powder
  • ¼ cup Dark Chocolate Chips


  • Bake a large sweet potato in the oven at 400 degrees for about 45 min or until soft.
  • Turn oven down to 350 degrees.
  • Grease 8 x 8 square baking dish or loaf pan.
  • On the stove, melt nut butter with maple syrup
  • In a large bowl add mashed sweet potato, melted nut butter and maple syrup and cocoa powder and mix well.
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Pour mixture into greased pan and bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before slicing and refrigerating.

These brownies are best when cooled completely.  Store in fridge or freezer and enjoy!
