I am going to be perfectly honest with you, I have made this Super Fudgy Sweet Potato Brownie recipe three times in the last two weeks and I made it again this morning.

You might be wondering, is it because I bought too many sweet potatoes? Nope, it’s simply because the rich fudgy chocolate taste is addicting and irresistible!

And since it’s St. Patrick’s Day, I have a great reason to make more and use up my green frosting.

Mmmm…this brownie is so soft and richly decadent you will be thinking about these fudgy brownies all day long! Therefore you should definitely grab two since they are a healthier option.

 

To make Super Fudgy Sweet Potato Brownies you will need:

1. Cooked and mashed sweet potatoes.
2. Vanilla extract.
3. Cashew butter ~ any nut butter is fine, we often use peanut butter as well.
4. Oat flour ~ Regular all-purpose or almond are other options as well.
5. Sugar ~ I used beet sugar; Monkfruit Sweetener is a zero carb option.
6. Cocoa powder
7. Baking soda
8. Salt
9. Semi-sweet mini chocolate chips. I used Enjoy Life Allergy-Friendly Semi-Sweet Mini Chocolate Chips.

The frosting is optional ~ Pillsbury Creamy Supreme vanilla and chocolate flavors are gluten, egg, nut, and dairy-free. These frostings are NOT corn and soy-free.

For this recipe the nut butter needs to be easy to stir, so you can either let it set out for about 30 minutes or carefully warm it up in the microwave. I personally have not used the microwave and the recipe has worked just fine.

Once the brownies have cooled you can frost them or serve them as they are. These brownies are so incredibly good we usually eat them plain. This is a freezer-friendly recipe even if they are frosted.

  • In a small mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to sweet potato mixture and stir to combine. Stir in chocolate chips.
