Flourless Brownies

You will be pleasantly surpised by the deliciousness of these Flourless Brownies.  The secret ingredient is sweet potato making these gluten free brownies a tasty option for anyone avoiding grains.

Before dumping the ingredients into a large mixing bowl, I first pierced one medium sweet potato and then cooked it in the microwave on high for 5 minutes.  Once cooked I mashed up enough to make 1/2 cup.

Once the sweet potato was ready and in the bowl, I added peanut butter, an egg, granulated sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and baking soda.

Using an electric hand mixer I blended the ingredients on low speed and then high speed until the batter was smooth and creamy.

Then I scraped the batter into a 8×8 inch baking pan that I had greased and lined with parchment paper.

I left enough overhang that would make it easier to remove brownies once cooked.

Before baking I sprinkled some semi-sweet chocolate chips over the top of the batter.

Next I put the baking pan into a preheated 350F oven for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center came out clean.

Once baked I let it cool in the pan for 15-20 minutes.

Then using the overhanging parchment paper I transferred the brownie to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

I cut the brownies into squares to enjoy this delicious treat.  

Options include melting the chocolate chips and spreading on after baking instead, or frosting the brownies before serving.  

Flourless Brownies, with a base of sweet potato, are a tasty dessert option for anyone avoiding grains!
