These Peppermint Sweet Potato Brownies are the perfect holiday dessert! They’re gluten-free and sweetened with dates. Add them to a Christmas cookie tray or bring them to a potluck or party.
3/4 cup chopped medjool dates (pits removed. Soak in hot water for 5 min first if they’re not super soft)
1/2 cup peanut butter
2/3 cup cooked, mashed sweet potato
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup oil
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp peppermint extract (adjust to more or less depending on how strong you like your mint flavor)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
white chocolate and candy canes for decorating
To cook my sweet potato I just stab it several times with a knife and microwave for 5 minutes.
