It's up to you whether or not you spill the beans and reveal what's behind these brownies' incomparable moistness and distinctive flavor, but rest assured they will be universally adored, even by kids (who probably don't need to know the secret ingredients after all). Just as canned pumpkin puree has long been a trusted way to prepare brownies without all the fat, so too can pureed sweet potatoes, as in this recipe, which also calls for pureed dates for extra flavor and for a "fudgy" consistency, without the need for melted chocolate.


  • 2 sweet potatoes (medium)
  • 15 pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 cup ground almonds
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons agave syrup
  • Did you make this?
