Brownies are definitely a favourite treat here, however it's hard to find healthy versions outside of our home.

That's why whenever possible we make our homemade versions and over the years we have been trying various combos.

Honestly at the beginning I wasn't sure that we could make a yummy brownie which could also be healthy but this vegan sweet potato version is the living proof that healthy yummy brownie is possible!

These brownies are vegan, dairy-free, eggless, refined sugar-free & kids friendly!

They were made entirely by the kids and you can watch their fun cooking video by clicking below!

Yummy vegan brownies!

  • 3/4 cup sweet potato cooked and mashed
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 3 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 2 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 table spoons choco hazelnut spread
  • 1/2 cup self-raising brown flour
  • Handful chocolate chips
  • 2 spoons macademia oil
  • 2 spoons hazelnut milk

Start by oven cooking 2 small sweet potatoes cut in half. Do some small cuts to accelerate the cooking. Oven cook at 180 degrees for about 20 minutes or until soft.

Mash the sweet potatoes and transfer in a bowl.

Add all the other ingredients and mix well. We decided to put the choco chips only on top as decoration but you could also add them in the mixture.

Transfer the brownie dough in a rectangular oven tray and flatten it.

Cook in pre-heated oven at 180 degrees for about 15/20 minutes.

Let it cool down then cut into squares.

    Unless you cook with these types of ingredients all the time, that's a lot of odd things to purchase.

      I agree! It was a recipe pretty much invented by my daughter using what we had in the house in that moment. It turned out super delicious and that’s why I decided to share it!

      what is it that it’s putting you off? If it’s the macademia oil, just replace it with any vegetable oil, and if you don’t have agave just leave it out, it won’t massively change the result. I hope it was helpful and if your have more questions don’t hesitate to ask!
