These flourless vegan sweet potato brownies are super gooey rich in flavour, with the crunchiness of the walnuts balancing the creamy texture – the kicker is what gives them their super creamy texture – sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes in a brownie?! I hear you exclaim. It’s true, sweet potatoes in brownies are totally a thing now and actually have a great creamy texture to them and a natural sweetness that make them perfect to use when making brownies. As a result, these brownies are totally vegan, paleo, gluten free and most importantly – delicious!
