Sweet potatoes are definitely an all-year-round vegetable to enjoy, but somehow it’s just much more popular in the fall and winter months. It definitely goes with the color scheme and I’m not here to complain about more sweet potatoes in my life.

With increasing popularity of grain-free diets, we’ve adapted and become inventive on how we create commonly flour-based recipes and making them new again in bold, exciting and healthy ways.

This recipe comes out with the softness of a brownie, and a texture that will have you coming back for more.

Make this recipe for your next festive gathering, or even for a healthy dessert in the house you can feel good about sneaking a little square of here-and-there.

Servings: 6 large squares

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups sweet potatoes, peeled, cooked & mashed
  • 1/2 cup cashew butter *sub for another nut/seed butter*
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch, salt
  • 3 tbsp almond milk
  • Non-stick cooking spray (or parchment paper)
  • Optional* chopped pecans for topping

Equipment

  • Loaf Pan
  • Food processor (optional)

Method

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Combine all ingredients (except for almond milk) into your food processor. If you don't have one, hand mixing will do (it's what we did!)
  • One tablespoon at a time, add your almond milk and combine into the batter.
  • Spray your loaf pan with a non-stick cooking spray, then pour and spread the batter evenly into the pan. Top with chopped pecans (optional).
  • Bake for 40 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let cool before cutting up and serving. Leftovers should be stored in the fridge before enjoying!
