This is an irresistible fudgy, sweet, and dense brownie and I owe it all to the sweet potatoes and avocado (and of course the chocolate)! The center of this fudge brownie is rich and moist like a traditional brownie but without the oil and eggs. Put these homemade gems in the freezer and you have a treat anytime! Enjoy!

  • 2 tablespoons flax meal

  • 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a 9 x 9 inch pan with parchment paper and set aside.

  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, sea salt, and chocolate chips, stirring thoroughly.
  4. To a blender, add maple syrup, milk, coconut sugar, vanilla, mashed sweet potatoes, and avocado. Blend until smooth and creamy. Pour this creamy mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Add the flax and water mixture. Stir until ingredients are completely combined. Do not over stir.
