Vegan Sweet Potato, Nut Butter Brownies
These healthy sweet potato, peanut butter brownies are also wheat free, gluten free, egg free and vegan friendly.
I use crunchy peanut butter with no added sugar or salt.
I like to add chopped nuts to the mix. Sometimes I add more cocoa for a darker chocolate brownie.
30 minutes to make. Makes 16 squares.
2 cups mashed sweet potato (2 medium sweet potatoes)
1 cup peanut butter or other nut butter
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 tbsp maple syrup or other sweetener of choice
Optional: chocolate chips and/or chopped nuts
Preheat the oven the 180 degrees Celsius
Grease a medium (20cm x 20cm) oven dish and set aside.
Place the mashed sweet potato in a large bowl, add the peanut butter, sweetener and cacao powder and mix very well. Add the optional chocolate chips and/or nuts and stir them through.
Scoop the mixture into the greased dish, even it out and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool before slicing into pieces.
