Healthy Sweet Potato Brownies


 I’m super tired but happy, and since so many of you requested the recipe on snapchat, here I am posting it for you all. Because I love you.    


  • 2 peeled and baked peeled sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup any flour (I used rye)
  • 5 tbsp cacao (I used raw cacao powder)
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup any milk (I used almond)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup egg whites (3 egg whites)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  • 1/4 cup Dark chocolate mini chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Hazelnut 


Preheat oven to 350F.

  1. Literally add all ingredients to a high speed blender. I used a brownie square pan but you can use a brownie pan. 
  2. Prepare mold with cooking spray and pour, sprinkling toppings as desired. 
  3. Bake for 20-25 minutes until fully cooked. Hard to believe how healthy it is, because it’s so delicious. Makes 14 servings.

  Savor and enjoy!

Xo, Ana

    Hi Ana,

    I so excited to try this recipe!
    I have one question though…

    If you could estimate roughly the measurement of how much sweet potato you used in this recipe, what would you say? … 1 cup, 1 1/2 cup? etc.

    I ask because your recipe calls for 2 baked and peeled sweet potatoes and the ones I have at home are fairly large! I would hate to ruin this recipe!

    Thanks so much for your feedback! I look forward to trying this recipe asap!

      Ha! These were medium and I didn’t weigh them, which was a mistake but if yours are HUGE, use only one. It will turn out! You won’t ruin it, you saw the consistency, if anything add 1/2 cup of flour instead of 1 cup and see how the consistency is. If too soupy, add more flour! Let me know how it goes!!!

    I made these yesterday and used coconut flower, they were a lil mushy then I realized I only used half a cup instead of 1 cup but they were amazing

  4. Kasandra Heard says:

    I so want to try this but what can you sub for the almond meal and almond milk without altering the taste? I’m allergic.

  5. amber says:

    I know you said the flower doesn’t matter but I went out and bought right anyway just because I wanted to do the exact recipe and I Googled it and it had a lot of other benefits so I figured why not LOL I also watched your beginning grocery shopping video and bought almost everything you purchased I’m so excited to start clean eating I’m really going to try to start eating more fruit I do not like fruit for some reason unless it is in a pie or a dessert or something like that but vegetables I like the hardest thing for me will be cutting out all the cream and butter and sugar I use that stuff and almost everything that I cook but I am going to try substituting stuff now
