Servings: 9 brownies


  • ¾ cup sweet potato puree about one medium sweet potato
  • 1 cup peanut butter melted
  • 1 very ripe banana mashed
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips divided
  • ½ cup spelt flour
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Grease or line a 8x8 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Steam or microwave the sweet potato until soft enough to mash. Let cool, remove the skin, and mash to a puree consistency.
  • Microwave the peanut butter on the melt or soften setting for about 30 seconds. This will make the peanut butter easier to combine with the other ingredients.
  • In a large bowl combine the sweet potato puree, peanut butter, mashed banana, applesauce, and vanilla extract. Stir until thoroughly combined.
  • In a separate bowl combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients mixture to the wet ingredients mixture. Stir until thoroughly combined.
  • Fold about ¾ cup of the chocolate chips into the batter.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and top with the remaining chocolate chips.
  • Bake for about 25 minutes for gooey brownies, about 30 minutes for firmer brownies.
