I hate to admit this, but I was having a vegan + gluten-free baking dry spell. It happens. My baking experiments the past few weeks have not been meeting my expectations. So I entered into today's 'sweet potato brownie' baking experiment with a bit of hesitation. I needed a win. That, and chocolate.
Then in swooped these brownies. Thank goodness!
These Vegan Peanut Butter Buckwheat Sweet Potato Brownies are everything I was craving. Fudgy and rich, yet fluffy and slightly cake-y. It's all here: the peanut butter crumbling on top and around the edges, the fudgy insides, dense with chocolate and coconut oil. So much YES in each bite. These are not too sweet, but also a perfectly decadent treat, with a healthy side.
True story: these just may be my fave brownie recipe yet. But I am not terribly surprised by that, I mean the whole 'sweet potato brownie' thing is pretty perfect. Sweet potatoes can do no wrong in my book! They keep your brownies egg-free, while adding some serious texture and fudginess AND natural sweetness. Boom. Brownie heaven awaits you!..
