These vegan brownies with sweet potatoes are rich, fudgy, and made with roasted sweet potato, raw cacao, and almond butter!  They cook quickly and are a perfect quick dessert or snack.

The sweetness in these simple plant-based brownies comes from the sweet potatoes and maple syrup. These brownies are refined sugar free, and are amazing with a cold glass of almond milk!

What’s In These Sweet Potato & Nut Butter Brownies?

See the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Almond Butter: or you can substitute an almond or cashew butter instead. Like my peanuts, I only use unsalted peanut butter.
  • Vanilla Extract: it’s super important to use real pure vanilla extract, and not artificial baking vanilla flavor.
  • Coconut Flour: I really like this coconut flour which has a nice consistency and texture. A little goes a long way with coconut flour, and I find that this bag lasts a while in my pantry (a great value!)
  • Raw Cacao Powder: this raw unsweetened cacao powder is a great addition to these brownies. Make sure you use a raw cacao powder and not sweetened baking cocoa… it makes a huge difference.
  • Maple Syrup
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Baking Powder
  • Chocolate Chips: to give these cookies an amazing chocolate chunk! These vegan chocolate chips are a great addition if you want to make these vegan and plant-based.

Make Ahead Vegan Brownies

This plant based brownie recipe is a fantastic and simple recipe to make ahead for company, a girl’s night, book club, or just for an amazing Friday on the couch. Great for a busy weeknight, for entertaining, or just for those nights when you don’t feel like cooking. 

I like to prep one (or a few) of these ahead of time, and freeze some for later.  Having ready cooked treats in the fridge or freezer is a great way to enjoy home cooked snacks when you don’t have time in the kitchen. Check out all my make ahead meals on The Herbeevore for some inspiration to help you prep, keep, heat, and heat!

How Do I Make Vegan Brownies with Sweet Potato?

These brownies were so good I wouldn’t have been able to tell they were gluten free or vegan. They had that thick traditional texture of a normal brownie. And they the perfect sweetness! Not too sweet, but just sweet enough to satisfy that dessert chocolate craving. Mix all ingredients in a bowl, bake, and enjoy!

One note is that you really have to let the brownies cool before slicing! I kept trying to eat them out of the pan warm, but they kept falling apart on me – they do need to cool and firm up before slicing.
