Hey guys- Alyson here, Abel’s boo, and I’ve concocted a chocolatey creation so gooey and rich that no one will ever guess the “secret ingredient.”

(Well, unless you read the title of this post…)

These real food and Wild-Approved brownies will make you the hero at the next company picnic and tailgate party alike.

Bring a batch to Dad on Father’s Day (you can mention the sweet potato he accidentally ate after he’s polished off 2 – 3 of them).

That’s right, sneaky lil’ sweet potatoes are hiding in these brownies!

I know what you’re thinking… “Why in the world would you put potatoes in brownies?”

Because these tasty tubers are the superstar of starches, boasting a high amount of Vitamin A, plus potassium, Vitamin C and Vitamin B6.

Sweet potatoes are a filling and slow-burning carb great for filling up, boosting prostate health, as well as nourishing glowing skin and a healthy gut.

Plus, they make the brownies moist and rich, just like brownies should be.

    Hey Alyson, these sound amazing! I made brownies with black beans and avocado which turned out great too. Not normally a big bean person, but it was a good way to sneak in some fiber and make really moist brownies. No one has ever guessed what is in them unless they read my blog and had seen the recipe ahead of time. I rarely make baked goods since I don’t really crave them, but it’s always fun to see what you can sneak into them!

    • Ha! That’s awesome. Let us know if you try these with sweet potato, and what you think. It’s always a win when you find ways to sneak real food into your family’s treats. : )

  2. Hi Alyson:

    I made your brownies. They are delicious! Didn’t have any almond flour, so I had to use all coconut. Just needed to add more liquid.

    Also, thank you hubby for having Brian Grasso and Carrie Campbell on his show awhile back. I now watch Abel’s and their podcasts. Between you two couples — I have learned so much!!

    • Yay! Glad to hear the brownies were delicious, even with the substitutions you made. And I’m just tickled to hear that you’re loving the show. Thanks for the feedback, Sue. : )

  3. WOW….these are sooooo good!!!! I have seen so many recipes for sweet potato brownies but never tried them until I saw these – they looked so yummy I just had to try them!
    And the amazing thing was, i stored them in the fridge and they stayed moist and delicious and didn’t dry out! Had many experiences of paleo cakes and breads etc. drying out and not being as nice once they have been in the fridge for a day or 2, but these? PERFECT!!!
    Thanks heaps you guys!!!!

  4. Oh my goodness… I just made these and tried my first one and these are the absolute best brownies ever!!! Now onto the other great recipes in the wild diet book..

    Does anyone know if you can substitute Cocoa powder for the chocolate chips if so, what measurement? Thanks. I can’t wait to try these.

    • Hi Yolanda — you can leave the chocolate chips entirely. No need to make any substitutions. But if you did want to add some crunch, I bet toasted walnuts or pecans would be a nice addition. Let us know how they turn out.

  6. This is the BEST healthiest brownie I EVER made! No one knew what it was until after I told them and they ate a few. I know it passed the test with my 9, 10 and 14 year old kids. The would let me know if something does not taste good. It is kid tested and approved!
