Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons Namaste Foods Perfect Flour Blend
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup organic canned sweet potato puree
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs (room temperature)
  • 1-1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) Earth Balance or butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup gluten free chocolate chips
  • Chocolate Glaze
  • 1/2 cup gluten free chocolate chips
  • 6 teaspoons coconut milk

Directions

Fudgy Sweet Potato Brownies:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a 9 inch pie dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl add your flour, cocoa, and baking soda. Sift dry ingredients together and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl add your eggs, vanilla, sweet potato, Brown sugar, and sugar. Blend together.
  4. Next add in your melted butter and blend again until creamy and fluffy.
  5. Now slowly add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients using a spatula or whisk and mix thoroughly (DO NOT BLEND with a mixer, Namaste’s Perfect Flour Blend thickens fast when blended. If you blend it will change the consistency of the batter and the recipe may not turn out.)
  6. Next, gently fold in your chocolate chips. Pour your batter into your greased pie dish.
  7. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Brownies are done when toothpick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs attached.

Chocolate Glaze:

  1. 1. In a small microwave safe bowl add your 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and 3 teaspoons of coconut milk. Microwave for 20 seconds then stir, microwave for another 20 seconds and stir again. If not melted at this point, microwave just a few more seconds. Now add in your last 3 teaspoons of coconut milk and stir again.
  2. Spread over the top of your brownies and let set. Once set slice brownies and serve. Enjoy!
