I love baking with maple syrup. It is a natural way to sweeten your Amazing Flourless Sweet Potato Healthy Brownies. Use it in moderation and you have a perfectly healthy sweetener.

Compared to refined (or “table”) cane sugar that offers absolutely no nutrients, maple syrup contains some important antioxidants and minerals like zinc and manganese. Maple syrup nutrition is impressive when it comes to supplying protective antioxidants. These are beneficial for reducing free radical damage that can cause inflammation and contribute to the formation of various chronic diseases.

It is important to buy a good quality maple syrup. I recommend this maple syrup because it is pure and tastes so delicious. We use it for baking, pancakes, waffles and even smoothies. Just wonderful!

You can bake your Amazing Flourless Sweet Potato Healthy Brownies in a loaf or cake pan or use a molds to make mini brownies that are the perfect size for kids. I love this recipe and the fact my kids enjoy a delicious homemade healthy treat.

You can also add some cacao nibs or dark chocolate chips but it is totally up to you. Just know that many chocolate chips at the supermarket contain some refined sugars. I like semi-sweet dark chocolate chips from Whole Foods.

    hi there. the flavor of these is yummy but I somehow didn’t get mine to smooth out and bake into a brownie: they stayed in the shape I scooped them in and just got firmer. any thoughts? will def try again! thanks.

  2. erica says:

    Just realized, my almond butter wasn’t super smooth. when I melted it it didn’t get pourable, as some do. it was somewhat of a course grind from a grinder. I’ll bet that’s the reason!

  3. Vi says:

    these had great flavour but didn’t look like muffins just blobs.,,I used almond butter so maybe that was the problem as previous comment. thanks

  4. Poorva says:

  5. Janet Carr says:

    Hi I am interested in baking these brownies question though I am from Canada and a sweet potatoe here is the light tan skin with off white and a hint of yellow flesh. A yam has the orange flesh and the skin I can’t think of the color it’s not purple it’s almost like a dark tan with the orange flesh color in it sorry I am terrible at trying to explain anyways just wanting to clarify what one I am to use. Thanks so much : )

    • Hi Cora, there are many types of sweet potatoes. Last week I bought purple sweet potatoes! The most common type are orange inside and are pretty sweet. Outside they look just like a big potato. I don’t know if yams will work for this recipe because they have a different texture. I will try to get the ones that are Orange inside. Hope this helps.

    Hey! I tried theese today, my 3 year old loved them, me too! But just wondering if the mixture is suppose to be pourable, mine wasn’t. It was very firm. They are quite fudgy inside, should I cook them longer? Also have the same cashewbutter as someone mentioned earlier, that doesnt really melt.. i still love them, just want to see if they could be more cooked.. any thoughts?

  8. Kaleena says:

    Are the sweet potatoes cooked and mashed before using them in this recipe? Or are they mashed raw?

  9. Silvana says:

    Hi Ursula, this was a winner with my picky 2.5 yr old. Followed the recipe but left them in the oven an additional 4 minutes. I loved them too.

  10. Val says:

    I put the brownies at 350 for 50 minutes and they still were not committed yet. What am I doing wrong?

  11. Caz says:

    Hi Ursula,

    I love your Flourless Sweet Potato Brownies.

    I would love to feature it in our website GreenThickies. I will not be posting the actual recipes, but I will only use one image from the post, title, a small quote and link directly back to your post.

    Will that be all right?

    Thanks 🙂

    These turned out yummy but did not look the same. They were very moist, almost wet. Maybe it was because I used natural peanut butter but I also added a scoop of choc protein powder. I couldn’t taste the sweet potato and was amazed how sweet it was with only 3 T maple syrup.

  14. Melissa says:

    So I tried these brownies today but I only had regular butter. I cooked them the regular amount of time and they came out tasting amazing but was pretty much just a blob of chocolate goop. I would really like to get these to form into brownies. Was my issue using regular butter?
