Ingredients

Brownies

  • 3/4 + 2 Tbsp oat flour
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 2 Tbsp Truvia brown sugar (or coconut sugar)
  • 1/4 cup Truvia baking blend
  • 1/2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 Tbsp baking soda
  • 1 cup Nancy’s dairy-free plain oat milk yogurt
  • 5 Tbsp vegan butter ( I used I can’t believe its not butter vegan)
  • 3 Tbsp vegan chocolate chips ( I used enjoy life chocolate chunks)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan sea salt

Frosting

  • 125 grams cooked sweet potato (about 1 small sweet potato)
  • 3 Tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 Tbsp Truvia baking blend
  • 1 Tbsp vegan chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp cash milk
  • 1 dash Himalayan sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

Brownies

 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line an 8×8 pan and spray with non-stick spray.
  2. Sift all dry ingredients into a large bowl and set aside
  3. Melt the vegan butter in the microwave. Then, stir in the melted butter in a medium-sized bowl with the other wet ingredients.
  4. Add the wet to the dry and mix until there are no clumps in the batter.
  5. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  6. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 40-45 minutes (less if you prefer a fudgier texture), and let cool for at least 30 minutes.

Frosting

 

  1. Cook the sweet potato until it is mushy
  2. Add all the ingredients into the blender and blend away. If you prefer a thicker frosting I suggest not adding the cashew milk.
  3. Store in the fridge while the brownies bake for 40 minutes.
  4. When the brownies have thoroughly cooled frost the brownies and place back in the fridge for 20-30 minutes until the brownies and frosting have become firmer.
  5. Enjoy! Also, I recommend pairing this with your favorite peanut butter and ice cream as this is an extremely versatile dessert.
