Project Description

Protein packed, grain-free, and naturally sweetened brownies…need I say more?


Made with just 6 ingredients (plus chocolate chips & salt which I strongly encourage) and I promise you can’t even tell the sweet potatoes are in there!

Yes, you can taste the protein powder a little, depending on what kind you use. But if you ask me, this is the best way to consume it ?

I didn’t add any sweetener to the batter because the protein powder I used is quite sweet already and I put all the good good chocolate chips on top too.

Let me know if you try these, I always love to see! If you do, be sure to tag me on social media @mealsbytiia

Sweet Potato Protein Brownies

Full Recipe

  • MAKES: 9 brownies
  • TOTAL TIME: 35 + roasting potato (40 min)
  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato, instructions follow

  • 1/4 cup coconut or avocado oil

  • 1/4 cup nut butter, I used almond, or addiction oil

  • 1 egg

  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder

  • 2 scoops protein powder, chocolate, preferably

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract, optional

  • 1/2 tsp salt, optional

  • Start by ensuring your sweet potato is roasted so you can easily mash it. I took two medium sized potatoes and poked them all over with a fork then put then on a tray and baked in the oven at 400F for about 40 min or until the inside is soft.

  • Once your potato is ready, allow to cool. Preheat oven to 350F if needed and prepare an 8×8 baking pan or a loaf pan, with parchment paper. Mash sweet potato until smooth in a bowl. Add in the oil, nut butter and egg. Mix until smooth again.

  • Stir in the cocoa powder and protein powder and mix. Optionally add in the vanilla and salt. The batter will thicken and seem too thick almost but trust it.

  • Scrape the batter into the prepared pan then top with dark chocolate chips, optionally. Bake for 20 minutes.

  • Allow to cool then cut into squares and enjoy!!
