  • 2 medium boiled white sweet potatoes (450 g)
  • 2 small bananas (200 g)
  • 2/3 cup xylitol (use coconut sugar for paleo version) (150 g)
  • 1 1/2 cup oat flour GF (use almond flour for paleo version) (130 g)
  • 1/2 cup plant milk - e.g. almond, soy, coconut (120 ml)
  • 7-8 tbsp cocoa powder (or cacao powder) (50 g)
  • 5 tbsp hemp seeds OR sunflower seeds (50 g)
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking powder


  1. Process the xylitol (or coconut sugar) in a coffee grinder or food processor until it becomes a fine powder. Repeat this step with the hemp seeds

  2. Put all ingredients in your food processor and blend until you have a smooth batter

  3. Pour in your brownie mold (I used a silicone mold 8.5" x 4" resp. 21.5 cm x 10 cm)

  4. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees F / 180 degrees C for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out almost clean (should not be sticky but also not too dry)

  5. Let it cool for 20-30 minutes. Top these fudgy brownies with a vegan chocolate sauce. You can find the exact recipe here PS: The brownies are even better on day 2!
