Double Chocolate Sweet Potato Brownie Muffins (low-carb, vegan, gluten-free)

I have always been team cookie over team brownie, except for when it comes to the Ghirardelli box brownie mix. My mom always kept these on hand growing up, and they are still my weak spot when it comes to the gooey, chocolatey comfort dessert that we all know and love.

In an effort to makeover some of my favorite comfort foods to encourage healthy habits without deprivation, I decided to tackle this favorite American dessert.

What makes these double chocolate sweet potato brownie muffins (nutritiously) special?

Glad you asked! With a few simple swaps, these brownies score high on the nutrition scale without sacrificing in flavor or texture.

In this recipe for vegan brownies (that hits the spot if you’re looking for a vegan brownie option), we are using:

  • Almond flour – an ideal substitute when looking to take your baking up a nutritious notch, almond flour is high in protein and low in carbohydrates which means these healthier treats will keep you satisfied for longer.
  • Sweet potatoes – a common healthy swap for added oils in baking, sweet potatoes add moisture and a fudge-like consistency to the mix. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of fiber (which helps stabilize blood sugar levels and prevents energy crashes) and vitamin A.
  • Almond butter – a great source of healthy fats, almond butter is full of antioxidants and vitamin E to support youthful, glowing skin!
  • Cacao powder – the raw form of cocoa powder, cacao powder retains more of its nutrients due to the raw processing of the cocoa bean.

Units Scale


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add the sweet potatoes, almond butter, maple syrup, almond milk and flax egg to a large mixing bowl and mix until smooth. Add the cacao powder, almond flour, baking powder, vanilla extract and salt and mix until well-combined. Fold in the mini chocolate chips. The batter will be thick and that’s okay!
  3. Spoon the batter into muffin tins that have been lightly sprayed with cooking spray (you could also use mini muffin tins).
  4. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes (10-15 minutes for mini muffins), or until cooked thoroughly. The muffins will firm up as they cool, so be careful to not over-bake them as this will cause them to be dry. Let cool for 10 minutes and enjoy!

  1. Oh my, I’m both tempted and frightened. I definitely want to make them. But, I’m afraid that I won’t be able to stop munching on them. I’m sure the kids will finish them so quickly. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Wow! These look amazing and i LOVE the ingredients as I’m Vegan + Gluten Free and like to enjoy a healthy treat once in a while. I have some leftover cooked sweet potato + everything else but I have one question! What could I do to lessen the amount of maple syrup? (since it’s expensive) Could I add 1/4 cup and increase the milk by 1/4 cup? Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Sabrina, these would be the perfect treat for you! I hear you on the maple syrup. To use less, you could definitely reduce the amount to 1/4 cup. I’m not sure you would need to add 1/4 cup almond milk. Maybe add 2 tbsp and go from there. I haven’t made this specific modification, so let me know how it turns out!

  3. I found results related to “Pizza Tower”. One is a fan-made side-scrolling non-linear action-platform game called “Pizza Tower” that you can play online for free 1.

  4. I recently used for my college assignment and I’m so glad I did. The paper I received was of great quality and it was delivered ahead of schedule. The customer service team was also very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this service to anyone looking for quality and speed!

  5. These were delicious! Thanks for the recipe!!! I didn’t have coconut oil, so I used grapeseed oil and a little blood orange olive oil slope unblocked. I also subbed the maple syrup for a frozen banana. It’s so good!

  6. The information from the previous post will definitely come in handy, but you should still brush up on run 3 games because they’re all the rage right now.

  7. I love how you’ve combined healthy ingredients like sweet potatoes and oats to create a decadent treat that’s guilt-free and delicious. Plus, the addition of double chocolate chips takes these muffins to the next level of indulgence.
