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 your dad for Father’s Day (you can mention the sweet potato he accidentally ate after he polishes off 2 – 3 of them).
These Double Chocolate Brownies are the perfect treat to share with dad this Father's Day. Click To Tweet
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.
Don’t ever go on a “diet” that deprives you of brownies. Click To Tweet

Elizabeth Resnick says
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!
Alyson Rose says
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. : )

What’s the nutritional values in the chocolate brownies?
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!!
Alyson Rose says
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. : )
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!!!!
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..
Yolanda Dobler says
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.
Alyson Rose says
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.
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!
Hey Alyson, what’s the reason for the Stevia extract, since the recipe calls for sugar anyway? Can I omit the stevia?
Alyson Rose says
Yep, feel free to omit the stevia. It helps boost up the sweetness without adding more sugar. If omitting the stevia, you may need to add 1/4 cup or so more coconut sugar. Thanks for the question!
I made these for my sorority sisters and they LOVED them! These are definetly replacing the boxed brownie mixes for sure!
Thank you so much for sharing these 🙂
Kevin Elizabeth Moorehead says
I can’t use almond flour bc my son has a nut allergy. I have coconut flour and cassava flour. Which one should i use and do i keep the measurements the same as if I was using the almond flour?
Can’t wait to try this recipe!
Hi Allyson, made these four times already, everyone loved them. Didn’t reveal the ingredients till they were all consumed. I used stevia and xylitol instead of sugar and baked the sweet potatoes. I used the entire potato including the skin also added cinnamon and replaced the cocoa for raw cacao power….sooo delish!.
Is there a way I can reduce the amount of fat? I used coconut oil instead of butter and was wondering if I could substitute greek yogurt or applesauce in lieu of the fat.
Yes, have made the black bean brownies but no comparison to these!!!
Do you know how many net carbs these have?
Julie Saldana says
wow, it’s amazing, they look so cool. This is not only a healthy food but also new, it is worth it for me to try. Hope they will taste like I imagined.
What about people with high cholesterol? Can all these recipes be used?
Great Job Buddy!!

Thanks for a great blog !
Stacy Brown says
These are the BEST brownies ever! I have 3 roomates 2 of which are “health nut” fanatics one who is a “junk food” fanatic and myself who is a Wild Diet fanatic! These brownies taste so good to whatever “fanatic” you are! The health nut “peeps” are like, “this can’t be true” same as the junk food peep, “really? This is what you can eat?” Haha. Thanks for the wonderful delicious recipes! The chicken enchiladas are the BOMB digity as well! Can’t wait to try more!
Abel James says
Hi Stacy, so glad you like the brownies and the enchiladas!!! You’re in good company 🙂
What kind of chocolate chips do you use?
The brownies are great the only change I made was dark chocolate powder half the baking soda and cooked them in my off size brownie pan so they come out thick and gooey Awesome clean food!!!
