Sweet Potato Pecan Brownies

I didn't believe it. I really didn't think you could make delicious brownies without tons of sugar, butter or dairy. I didn't believe you could use sweet potato and make such an amazing dessert. But here is the proof. An amazing dessert with some healthy ingredients.

I served these last week at a dinner party with some vanilla ice cream and a coconut/chocolate sauce. It was incredible... But even after a few days in the fridge, these are great treat when you have a chocolate craving. 


  • 1 large sweet potato, roasted or steamed
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 3 tbsps coconut flour (or flour of your choice)
  • 3 tbsps raw cacao powder
  • 2 tsps cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda or powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup pecans (save some for garnish)
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips 

  1. Mash roasted or steamed sweet potato and let cool
  2. Preheat oven to 350F (180C)
  3. Combine wet ingredients (sweet potato, eggs, coconut oil, honey, vanilla) and mix well
  4. Add in dry ingredients (flour, cacao powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, baking powder and salt) and mix
  5. Add in pecans and chocolate chips
  6. Grease an 8x8 baking dish (or use baking paper to avoid sticking) Another option is to use muffin or mini muffin trays for brownie bites
  7. Use fork to smooth out
  8. Add pecans on top to garnish if desired
  9. Place in oven and bake 30-40 mins or until toothpick inserted in the cener comes out clean (15-18 for muffins)
  10. Cool, cut and serve!
