Sweet Potato Brownie Bites
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup hot coffee
  • 2 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Place a large sweet potato in a microwave and cook on high for 5 to 7 minutes or until completely softened. Scoop out of the flesh and discard the skin. Set aside 1 cup of flesh.
  • Place the mini chocolate chips in a bowl. Pour the hot coffee over the chocolate chips and stir to melt the chocolate. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the reserved sweet potato, butter, eggs, sugar and vanilla. Add the chocolate coffee mixture to the sweet potato mixture and stir to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt. Add the dry ingredient mixture to the sweet potato mixture and stir just to combine.
  • Using a mini muffin tin, fill the cups 3/4 of the way with brownie mixture. Place in the oven to bake for 8 minutes.
  • Tips
    1. Heat up leftover coffee or espresso.
    2. Alternatively, roast the sweet potato until fork tender, for a sweeter, more developed flavor.
