Sweet Potato Protein Brownies

Who would have thought!? You can have your brownie and eat it too. These babies have 6g of protein per brownie! 


Sweet Potato Protein Brownies (yields 16)

  • 2 large sweet potatoes (peeled and cubed)
  • 2 scoops chocolate protein powder (I used Genuine Health's Fermented Vegan)
  • 3/4 cup natural nut butter (suggestions: almond, hazelnut or peanut)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp. pure vanilla 
  • 1 tsp. flaked sea salt (regular is fine too)
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • for greasing: 1/4 cup coconut or avocado oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Grease a 9x9 pan with coconut or avocado oil
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add in sweet potatoes and cook until the sweet potatoes rise near the surface of the water
  4. In the meantime, mix together eggs, maple syrup, cinnamon + vanilla in a blender (or food processor) until fully combined
  5. Next, add in nut butter and mix until combined. Lastly, add in the protein powder and mix again until fully combined
  6. Once the sweet potatoes are finished, pour over a strainer. Let cool for a few minutes in your sink
  7. Finally, add the sweet potatoes into the blender and mix until fully blended
  8. Pour mixture into the pan and spread evenly. Spread the sea salt evenly over the brownies.
  9. Cook for 40 minutes and let cool for at least 15 minutes
