Yum Alert: Vegan Sweet Potato Brownies

Written by rosetta

Just when we thought sweet potatoes couldn’t get any better… I stumble upon this Sweet Potato Brownie recipe (because the Internet is great, #amirite?).

Gluten-free, vegan, and refined-sugar free, these treats are beyond-delicious, yet guiltless. Image and recipe via Deliciously Ella.┬áIf you’ve got dietary restrictions, this is basically your idea of dessert heaven.


Makes 10 sweet potato brownies

-2 medium to large sweet potatoes

-2/3 of a cup of ground almonds

-1/2 a cup of buckwheat flour (brown rice flour will also work)

-14 medjool dates

-4 tablespoons of raw cacao

-3 tablespoons of pure maple syrup

-a pinch of salt

For instructions, go here.

Pairing ideas: a glass of hot almond milk chai, a deep glass of Syrah, or even a bowl of cut pineapple– there’s something about the acidity that cuts through the sweetness of the Sweet Potato Brownies rather well. Enjoy in good health!
