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


  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 30 minutes.

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

Hi there

As it turns out, I'm intolerant to eggs. My recipes will therefore always be free from egg, and usually also from gluten and wheat. I strive to create low carb recipes with only a few ingredients. Feel free to contact me about any recipe ideas.
