  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (125g)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup (80ml)
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil (60ml)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (5ml)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (60g)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (20g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder (2.5g)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (1.25g)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (45g), for topping

Special notes: Make sure to use creamy peanut butter for the swirl. You can also add chopped nuts or additional chocolate chips for extra texture and flavor.

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a square baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the mashed sweet potatoes, peanut butter, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix well until all the ingredients are fully incorporated.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the sweet potato mixture and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  4. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking dish and spread it evenly using a spatula.
  5. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt the additional peanut butter for about 20-30 seconds until it becomes smooth and pourable.
  6. Drizzle the melted peanut butter over the brownie batter in the baking dish. Use a toothpick or a skewer to create swirls by gently dragging it through the batter and peanut butter.
  7. Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the top of the batter.
  8. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs.
  9. Once baked, remove the brownies from the oven and let them cool completely in the baking dish before cutting into squares and serving.
