These chocolate sweet potato brownies contain coconut flour but not nuts so they could be great for kids school lunchboxes and parties unless you’re not allowed to bring coconut-based treats. Perfect as a treat for birthdays, Christmas, Thanksgiving or Easter, these brownies are paleo, gluten-free and dairy-free.



1 medium sweet potato – 2-3 cups when grated

2 whole eggs

1/2 cup melted coconut oil

1/3 cup raw honey

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 cup raw cacao powder, sifted

1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

3 tablespoons coconut flour


  • Preheat the oven to 185 °C (365 °F), making sure the oven is hot before you put the brownies in. Line a baking tray with lightly greased baking paper. I used a 9″/23cm square tin.
  • Combine the grated sweet potato, eggs, vanilla, honey and coconut oil in a large mixing bowl and stir together until well incorporated. Then, add the cacao powder, baking powder and baking soda and combine. Stir in the coconut flour last.
  • Once combined, pour the mixture into a baking tray and pop in the oven. Cook for 25-30 minutes.
  • Remove the tin and cool for 5-10 minutes before carefully removing the brownie cake from the tin. Cut into squares and dust with a little extra cacao powder or melt some dark chocolate in a bowl over boiling water or in a microwave and drizzle it over the top.
  • Serve with raspberries or strawberries and maybe some fresh cream or coconut yoghurt.
