Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 medium sweet potato (1 cup mashed)
  • 2 flax eggs (2 Tablespoons of ground flax + 6 Tablespoons water)
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)
  • 1/4 cup almond butter (for stuffing, totally optional)**

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Pierce sweet potato with a fork in 2-3 spots. Wrap in foil and roast until tender, about 30 minutes. Let cool. Peel sweet potato and mash with a fork. Measure out 1 cup of mashed sweet potato for the recipe and save the rest for something else.
  2. Add ground flax to water and whisk together in a small bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes to thicken.
  3. Lower oven temp to 350ºF. Lightly coat a mini muffin tin with coconut oil.
  4. Add mashed sweet potato, maple syrup, coconut oil, flax eggs and vanilla into a large bowl and stir to combine. Add flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Stir to combine. Gently stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Drop batter into the wells of your greased mini muffin tin and bake for 20 minutes. Brownie bites are done when you can insert a knife and it comes out clean.

Notes

*For the almond butter stuffed version, simply add a little of the brownie batter to the muffin tin and make a tiny well with your finger. Add a 1/2 teaspoon of almond butter to the well and cover with more brownie batter.
