By: The Jaroudi Family


2 cups cooked sweet potatoes (do not include the skins!)

1/4 cup date paste

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/3 cup oat flour (rolled oats pulsed in a blender)

1/4 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)

Optional - Handful of dark chocolate chips

*Other great add-ins can be walnuts, peppermint extract, dried fruit*


+In a large mixing bowl, add in wet ingredients (sweet potatoes, date paste, applesauce, mix until well combined

+Add in oat flour, cocoa powder, and optional ingredients.

+Pour brownie batter into a silicone dish or oven-safe dish lined with parchment paper.

+Bake for 25 minutes (If you double our recipe bake for 30-35 minutes)

My favorite way is heating the brownies, topping them with nice-cream, and our raspberry jam!

Thank you for sharing! I was looking for a healthy first dessert for my baby when I came across your recipe. It honestly tastes like chocolate sweet potato to me lol, but my baby liked it!

I made the recipe as is, but it came out too soft. I was able to spread it on toast for my baby to eat like chocolate spread though :) Do you think adding more cocoa powder would help?

I had a hard time not eating all the brownies for lunch just now :) I had to modify the recipe a bit, but it came out delicious. I can't have sugar of any kind, even natural, so I replaced the date paste with almond butter. I also can't have sweet apples, only granny smith, so I used grated apples instead of applesauce. Since that made the batter too dry, I added some homemade soy yogurt (I can't wait to try it with the coconut yogurt). I also used the gluten Free all purpose flour from Costco because that is what I had.
