Hippie Moms Aren't Crazy

Sweet Potato Einkorn Brownies

Okay so now I’m combining my three most recent obsessions:

  • Sweet potato
  • Einkorn flour
  • Cacao powder (actually cacao has always been an obsession since discovery)

…and BOOM! Sweet Potato Einkorn Brownies.

I LOVE the way these brownies are dense, gooey, and delicious.

Every weekend I’ll make or bake something chocolately and sweet to enjoy and indulge. This is my creation this weekend:

Sweet Potato Einkorn Brownies


1 cup Organic and raw cacao powder

1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)

3 eggs

1 cup maple syrup

1 tsp. salt

1 tbsp. vanilla

1 cup nuts, chopped (optional)

1 cup sweet potato puree

1 ¾ cups sifted Einkorn flour

½ tsp. baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (non-convection).
  2. Line an 8- inch square cake pan with unbleached parchment paper (allow overhang).
  3. Whisk together Einkorn flour, baking powder, salt, and cacao powder in separate bowl; set aside.
  4. Whip eggs, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla, and sweet potato puree until well mixed and thick.
  5. Add dry ingredients to batter, and combine well.
  6. Add chopped nuts (optional).
  7. Pour batter into lined pan; bake in a water bath for 20-30 minutes. A water bath keeps the oven moisture high and heat gentle. (Bake the cake pan in a larger baking pan containing water, but make sure to leave at least 1 inch of space above the water.) If you can’t swing a water bath, I put a glass dish with about 2 inches of water on the bottom rack. This also helps keep the oven’s moisture level higher as well.
  8. Using a fork stick into brownies, when fully cooked the fork should come out clean.
  9. Allow to cool, cut, eat, enjoy!

Adding a few drops of peppermint oil to the finished mixture can also transform more traditional brownies to more modern peppermint chocolate brownies… BOOM and YUMMY!!
