sweet potato brownies

these are a CFLJ favorite. i originally got this recipe from http://paleomg.com/ and made very minor tweaks to it.


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup amber raw agave
  • 1/2 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt


  1. poke holes in your sweet potatoes using a for and bake them any way you wish: microwave for 7 mins or bake them 25-30 mins in a preheated 425 degree oven. i’m impatient so i always use the microwave.
  2. preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  3. once the sweet potatoes are soft and mashable, mash them in a bowl peeling the skin off.
  4. add the wet ingredients: eggs (make sure you whisk them first), coconut oil, agave, and vanilla extract.
  5. add the dry ingredients: coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, cinnamon, chocolate chips, and salt.
  6. mix well together
  7. pour into whatever you want to bake it in: 8×8 baking dish or in muffin cups. i like to make muffin cups because they’re easier to share and bring with me as a snack.
  8. bake for 30 – 35 minutes until it passes the toothpick test.
  9. let it cool for a bit then devour.
