Ingredients

For the Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 3/4 cup ground pecans
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • Dash of sea salt

For the Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 can black/kidney beans
  • 1 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 flax eggs
  • 1 cup grated zucchini
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips (optional)

To Make the Sweet Potato Frosting:

  • 2 small sweet potatoes, peeled & cooked
  • 1/2 cup and 2 tablespoons nut butter 
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 5 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preparation

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350°F and line a square baking tin with parchment paper.
  2. Add all the dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk together.
  3. Add all the liquid ingredients (except for flax eggs and zucchini) in a blender. Blend until you have a smooth mixture 1-2 minutes.
  4. Pour the wet mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Add the flax egg, grated zucchini, and vegan chocolate chips (optional).
  5. Whisk together with a spatula or hand mixer until smooth.
  6. Pour the batter into the baking tin and spread evenly.
  7. Place in the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
  8. In the meantime, prepare the sweet potatoes and steam/cook them until soft.
  9. Place into a high-speed blender with the remaining ingredients and mix well until very smooth. You want a smooth but firm frosting. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate.
  10. Once the brownies are done, let them cool down for 30 minutes. Cut the brownies in half and place a layer of the frosting on top of the base layer.
  11. Place the second brownie half on top and add the remaining frosting on top and on the sides.
