Ingredients

Makes 12 brownies.

  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened Rainforest Alliance Certified cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 2/3 cup sweet-potato puree
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon instant coffee powder

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8-inch square pan; set aside. In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt butter. Remove pan from heat, and stir in cocoa. Let cool slightly.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Stir in sugar and sweet-potato puree, then egg. In a small bowl, stir together vanilla and coffee until coffee is dissolved; add to cocoa mixture.
  4. Add flour mixture to chocolate mixture and stir until no traces of flour remain. Spoon into prepared pan; smooth the top. Bake until surface of brownies looks barely dry and an inserted knife comes out with a few moist crumbs, about 20 minutes. Cool to room temperature before serving.
