Brownies With Sweet Potatoes Are Delicious!

If you're looking for a new gluten-free brownie recipe, this may be just what you're looking for. In addition to almond flour, I used sweet potato, cacao powder and cacao nibs to amp up the nutritional value. Satisfy your sweet tooth without the guilt!


  • 1/2 cup sweet potato, boiled and mashed
  • 2 tablespoons (or more) honey
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons (or more) cacao powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs


  1. Line two 9-inch loaf pans with baking paper. Set aside.
  2. Boil the sweet potato and then mash it in a bowl.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients, except the cacao nibs. Mix until combined.
  4. Divide the batter between the two loaf pans.
  5. Top the batter with cacao nibs. Using a fork to gently press down the nibs.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes.

Baking Tips

  • If your mashed sweet potato is a bit dry, add some liquid, like water or rice milk. Add one tablespoon at a time until you get a moist mash.
  • I have used coconut flour in this recipe, and it came out fantastically! When using coconut flour, you might want to use coconut oil instead of olive oil.
  • Instead of cacao nibs, you may use walnuts or cashew nuts. I have also used a combination of cacao nibs and cranberries.
