Guilt-Free Dark Chocolate Sweet Potato Brownie

by Kevin
Vincent Esposito

This guilt free brownie recipe has become a staple for me. After a lifetime of letting my health get out of control, I’ve been working hard to try and convert to a completely whole food, plant based diet. People seem to think that I’ve had such a  healthy diet, but the fact is, I’ve been a junk food vegetarian for most of my life. Not eating meat doesn’t make you healthy if what you eat instead is a bunch of processed fake meats, simple carbs, sugars, fats and alcohol! My gut ended up out of whack, i had high blood pressure, a fat liver. Top top it off, I was unhappy with how I looked. After watching Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, as well as What The Health, I decided to get my life in order. I did a full 30 day juice cleanse to get me kick started and then switched over to a whole food, plant based diet as the one Dr. McDougall recommends. The one thing I was truly missing was dessert. Cake, cookies, brownies, etc. One day I was scrolling through TikTok and came across a video from Vincent Esposito.  Vincent is a Chiropractor in New York who takes a holistic approach to helping his patients. One message that he tries to spread is that of a healthy, plant based diet. With his 30 second TikTok videos, he teaches watchers, fast, simple, tasty recipes that will help them meet their health and wellness goals. Be sure to check out his video for this recipe. The recipe I’m posting below is slightly modified since i have a bit of a sweet tooth. Whether you go with his original recipe, my modified version, or modify it to your own taste, you will be thrilled with this guilt free dessert.

Ingredients

  • 3-4 sweet potatoes (I use 3 + the bananas. Use 4 if you're not using bananas or if they are very small)
  • 2-3 very ripe bananas (speckled or almost all black)
  • 1.5 cup oat flour
  • 1.5 cup Cacao Powder
  • 1tbsp nut butter (cashew, but substitutions are fine!)
  • 1/2 cup cacoa nibs
  • 1 cup oat milk
  • 1 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • cashew and pumpkin seeds (or whatever nuts you have around)
  • 3-4 dates, chopped small (optional)

Instructions

Roast the sweet potatoes in a 400 degree oven for 50-60 minutes or until tender

When the sweet potatoes are done basking, remove the skin (should come off easily) Place in a bowl and mash well.

To the mashed sweet potatoes, add all other ingredients and mix well.

Place batter into a parchment lined loaf pan. Bake at 350F for 40-45 minutes (I usually bake it for closer to an hour, but Vincent's original recipe calls for less time. Al ovens are different, so you have to play this by ear to a degree, I use the "toothpick method", but you're never going to have a toothpick come out of this completely clean. It's a bit fudgie.)

 

Notes

Oat Flower - You can buy this pre-made or just put stanard oatmeal into a blender or food processor and grind it to a powder. Suggestions: Get creative! Add dried fruits, other nuts, Vincent suggested topping it with tahini before baking it. Go wild! Too much batter? Make cupcakes for when you're on the go. I was having them for breakfast at work at one point!
