Double Chocolate Brownies (3).jpg

These rich, fudgy brownies from Half The Sugar, All the Love: A Family Cookbook by Jennifer Tyler Lee hit the mark with less than half the sugar of a boxed brownie mix (these: 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar, theirs: 4 1/2 teaspoons). The secret ingredients are ones that none of our tasters could guess: sweet potatoes and almond butter.

Sweet potatoes give these brownies a natural sweetness, while almond butter adds a creamy, rich texture — plus they’re studded with chocolate chips. These don’t need flour, so they’re great for gluten-free families. If you use canned sweet potato puree, the whole recipe comes together in less than 10 minutes in the food processor, so you can satisfy chocolate cravings quickly.

Lower Sugar Double Chocolate Brownies


  • Author: Jennifer Tyler Lee
  • Yield: 24 brownies

Description

These rich, fudgy brownies from Half The Sugar, All the Love: A Family Cookbook by Jennifer Tyler Lee hit the mark with less than half the sugar of a boxed brownie mix (these: 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar, theirs: 4 1/2 teaspoons). The secret ingredients are ones that none of our tasters could guess: sweet potatoes and almond butter. 


Ingredients

Nonstick cooking spray
1/2 pound sweet potatoes, peeled, cubed, and boiled until fork-tender
1/2 cup unsweetened almond butter 
1/2 cup coconut oil or unsalted butter (1 stick), melted 
1 large egg plus 1 large egg yolk 
1/4 cup maple syrup 
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup unsweetened natural cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips (6 3/4 ounces)


Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a 13 × 9-inch baking dish with parchment paper, leaving 2 inches of overhang on each side, and coat with cooking spray. 

2. Combine the sweet potatoes, almond butter, coconut oil, egg, and egg yolk in a food processor. Process until very smooth, making sure no chunks of sweet potato remain, about 1 minute.

3. Scrape down the side of the bowl and add the maple syrup and vanilla. Process until combined, about 30 seconds.

4. Add the cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda and process until all the dry ingredients are incorporated, about 1 minute more. Fold in 1 cup of the chocolate chips.

5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, spread it into an even layer, and sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons chocolate chips. Bake until the top is set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs, 27 to 30 minutes. Let the brownies cool slightly. Cut into 24 bars.
