Vegan Sweet Potato, Nut Butter Brownies

These healthy sweet potato, peanut butter brownies are egg-free, wheat-free, gluten-free, dairy free and vegan friendly.

I use crunchy peanut butter with no added sugar or salt.

I usually add chopped nuts to the mix, and sometimes also desiccated coconut or chocolate chips. Sometimes I add more cocoa for a darker chocolate brownie.

You can leave the skins of the sweet potato on for a more nutritious version, or take the skins off for a smoother end result.

10 mins to prep. 20 minutes to bake. Makes 16 squares.


  • 2 cups sweet potato, mashed (about 2 medium sweet potatoes)

  • 1 cup peanut butter or other nut butter

  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or other sweetener of choice

  • Optional extras like chopped nuts, coconut or chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven the 180 degrees Celsius

  2. Grease a medium (20cm x 20cm) oven dish and set aside.

  3. 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.

  4. Scoop the mixture into the greased dish, even it out and bake for 20-25 minutes.

  5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before slicing into pieces.

  6. Store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

Hi there
