SGAC Eats: Member Recipe: Healthy Fudge Brownies with a hidden, secret ingredient!

We can’t get enough of healthy snacks that taste amazing,. Our awesome member, Meg shared with us a deliciously, fudgy brownie recipe and you’ll never guess it, but there is a secret ingredient (a vegetable to be exact) that makes these brownies ultra FUDGE filled!

It’s… Drumroll please… SWEET POTATO *gasp*!

Here’s the way to make these amazing, healthy brownies. Trust us, you won’t even know he sweet potato is there .


  • 1 medium sweet potato - 2-3 cups when grated
  • 2 whole eggs
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup raw cacao powder, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2½ tablespoon coconut flour
  • Optional: 2 Tbs Vanilla Protein Powder for extra protein


  1. Preheat oven to 185 °C make sure the oven is hot before you put in the brownies in.
  2. Combine grated sweet potato, eggs, vanilla, honey and coconut oil in a large mixing bowl and stir together until well incorporated. Then add cacao powder, baking powder and baking soda and stir. Finally add coconut flour. Avoid adding too much coconut flour as it will absorb too much moisture which will result in drier brownies.
  3. Once combined, pour the mixture into a baking tray lined with greased baking paper.
  4. Cook for 25-30 minutes. Remove the tin and cool for 5-10 minutes before carefully removing the brownie cake form the tin. Cut them into squares and dust with a little cacao powder or melt some dark chocolate in a bowl over boiling water or in a microwave and drizzle it over the top. Serve with raspberries or strawberries and some fresh cream or coconut yoghurt to be extra decadent.
