Sweet Potato Brownies
Skillet Sweet Potato Brownies

Helloooooo beautiful. That’s pretty much what I say every time I take a bite out of these paleo sweet potato brownies. Today we’re sharing a healthy brownie recipe with a twist! AKA we replaced the oil with sweet potato puree to make these brownies nutritious and delicious! Plus, these sweet potato brownies are super fudgy and grain-free/paleo-friendly (WOOT!).

If you’re a brownie lover like me, you know it’s sort of hard to find a healthy brownie recipe that’s just as good as the real deal. Well, I’m here to change your mind! Even though these sweet potato brownies are gluten free, dairy free, and grain free, they’re fudgylicious and perfectly sweet! They’re made with a base of coconut flour, which is what helps them become thick and fudgy and naturally sweetened with coconut sugar, maple syrup, and SWEET POTATO…but you already knew that 😀 The sweet potato in this recipe also allows us to take away any kind of oil that’s needed. By doing this, you reduce fat and calories.

Sweet Potato Brownies Ingredients

With just a few paleo-friendly ingredients, you’re going to have these amazing healthy brownies ready in no time. Here’s what you need:

  • eggs
  • maple syrup
  • sweet potato puree
  • coconut flour
  • cocoa powder
  • coconut sugar
  • baking powder
  • cinnamon
  • chocolate chips

This healthy brownie recipe is meant to be eaten family style. We used a 10-inch cast iron pan to cook them in so that we could all dig in at once. Of course, it’s optional to slice and serve, but we preferred plopping some ice cream right on top and eating it straight out of the pan! Please do note that if you use a different size pan or a pan that is not cast iron, the bake time will slightly differ.

Do you think you could just make this in a normal baking dish vs a cast iron skillet? Otherwise i’ll have to go buy a cast iron skillet because i am so making this!
