There are few things as perfect as a simple chocolate dipped strawberry, and these impressive little entremet cakes transform that classic pairing into a chocolate covered dome of delight, with a luscious strawberry mousse and rich chocolate brownie core.

Featuring a cloud-like strawberry mousse and a square of fudgy chocolate brownie, all covered with a glossy chocolate ganache glaze, these little mousse cakes are as stunning as they are delicious. While entremet-style desserts do require a bit of effort and planning, the work is easily manageable when split over a few days.

My blueberry mousse cake recipe is surprisingly popular given its complexity; and I’m giddy with delight every time I’m tagged in a photo by someone who’s made them.

This recipe is a similar entremet-style dessert, but with different components: a rich chocolate brownie instead of the almond sponge, a light strawberry Bavarian mousse (distinctive in its use of egg yolks in the base), and then a chocolate ganache coating instead of the mirror glaze.

Creamy Chocolate Hazelnut Milk

This creamy, DIY vegan chocolate milk is something special because it’s like Nutella in a glass. We know! Exciting stuff. It’s the real deal but without the dairy and refined sugar. Plus, it’s a bit more sophisticated than your average chocolate milk thanks to the nutty complexity of hazelnuts. And it’s super chocolaty thanks to cocoa or cacao powder.

Bonus perk? Just 5 ingredients required and it’s naturally sweetened with dates and maple syrup for more wholesome indulgence.

Tricks to the best sweet potato brownies

These sweet potato brownies are next level. Everyone who’s tried them comes back with one word: “Wow!” Over here we’re partial to a chewy brownie, and the sweet potato adds just the right moist, chewy texture. It also brings a richness that somehow tastes more real than using loads of butter and sugar. We like these better than a standard brownie: hands down. Here are some of the major ingredients that make this recipe work:

  • Mashed sweet potato brings richness and texture, and stands in for some butter and flour
  • Almond butter adds fat while adding protein
  • Sugar sweetens it just right: you can use granulated, coconut or your favorite solid sugar here
  • Flour is much less than a standard recipe, and you can substitute to make them gluten free
  • Cocoa powder brings rich chocolaty flavor
  • Olive oil is a healthy oil and you’ll only need a touch
  • Dark chocolate chips are required for the final touch of chocolate!

Roasting the potatoes (and a shortcut or two)

The only difference from these sweet potato brownies and a traditional dump-and-stir recipe? Roasting the sweet potatoes. Here are a few notes on this process, and a shortcut or two:

  • Roasting the potatoes caramelizes them and brings out the sugars. It’s absolutely worth the 30 minutes of roasting time.
  • Cut them in half before roasting! This cuts down on the time needed to roast, versus roasting them whole.
  • You can microwave the potatoes as a shortcut. Prick them all over with a fork, place them on a plate and microwave on high for about 10 to 12 minutes or more until tender, rotating halfway through. But keep in mind: the timing can vary based on size and the microwave can be uneven in cooking. Also, roasting brings out the natural sugars, whereas the microwave does not. So only use this in a pinch!

Make them gluten free!

Want to make these vegan sweet potato brownies gluten free? It’s an easy swap for the flour! Using the sweet potato lets you use much less flour than a traditional brownie. There’s only 1/2 cup flour in the entire pan! Here are a few swaps for the flour:

  • Try oat flour (or make your own). Oat flour is our favorite gluten-free flour: it makes for beautifully delicious gluten free goods like healthy pumpkin bread or oatmeal pancakes. It’s easy to make, too: just whiz oats in a blender or food processor until they become powdery. It’s an easy swap here.
  • Or use your favorite gluten free flour. Most 1-for-1 gluten free flour blends will work here!

Vegan sweet potato brownies

Are these vegan sweet potato brownies…healthy?

You’ll never miss the traditional butter and eggs in these vegan sweet potato brownies. Almond butter and olive oil stand in for the butter, and the sweet potato gives them just the right texture. But can they be considered healthy? Here’s what to know:

  • These are a treat: they’ve got lots of sugar! Don’t be fooled: these are a treat food for sure.
  • Sweet potato adds fiber, Vitamin A and Vitamin C. Brownies don’t normally have fiber and vitamins, so that’s a plus! One pound of sweet potatoes has 357% of the daily recommendation for Vitamin A and 13 grams of fiber.
  • Almond butter adds protein and heart-healthy fats. Instead of butter, almond butter adds plant-based protein and makes these a filling treat.

Bottom line: These vegan sweet potato brownies are not a health food, but they’re a healthier treat when compared to a standard brownie.

Description

These amazing sweet potato brownies will wow everyone! Fudgy and chewy, they’re loaded with flavor…good stuff, too. Vegan with gluten-free swap.


Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups mashed sweet potato (about 1 pound or 2 medium potatoes) 
  • 1/2 cup creamy almond butter
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar (granulated or coconut)
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour (or gluten-free flour)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (dairy free if desired)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Wash the sweet potatoes and slice them in half. Place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and rub them with olive oil, just enough to coat. Sprinkle lightly with kosher salt. Place cut side down on the baking sheet. Bake until tender and lightly browned on the edges, about 30 to 35 minutes depending on the size of the potatoes (smaller potatoes may take 25 minutes; prick with a fork to assess doneness).
  2. Reduce the oven heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 9 x 9 or 8 x 8 pan with parchment paper (allowing it to extend out the sides to lift it out later, or just a square if you plan to cut them in the pan). Then grease the entire pan and parchment paper. 
  3. Pull the skin off of the sweet potatoes and mash them, measuring out 1 1/2 cups. Add the almond butter, cocoa powder, sugar, flour, oil, baking powder, vanilla, and kosher salt until a thick dough forms. Fold in 1/4 cup of the dark chocolate chips. Place the batter in the pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips on top. 
  4. Bake 30 minutes, until set but soft in the center. Cool 1 hour. degrees Fahrenheit. Store at room temperature for 3 days, refrigerated for 1 week, or in the freezer for 3 months.

Cosmic brownies: cookie-fied! Your favorite nostalgic childhood treat is now in cookie form, with the traditional milk chocolate ganache topping stuffed inside a chewy brownie cookie.

Another day, another stuffed cookie recipe, and these ganache-stuffed brownie cookies (aka “Cosmic” brownie cookies) are fan-freaking-tastic.

I mean, the brownie cookie alone would be worth sharing, with its perfectly crinkly exterior and rich, chocolatey flavor. But with the hidden ganache filling? Well, these cookies take the cake.

The cheerful sprinkles on top only add to the appeal (it’s the truth that rainbow sprinkles make everything better).

I originally set out to recreate my Out of This World Brownies, aka knock-off Cosmic Brownies, in cookie form.

I debated between a stuffed cookie or a sandwich cookie, but you all know how much I love my stuffed cookies, so I really didn’t debate long (and really, if you think about it, a stuffed cookie is just a one-piece-sandwich-cookie so… it’s a win win all around).

And folks… this recipe really is a winner. I’m beyond thrilled with how these came out and strongly (strongly) encourage you to make them ASAP.
