These delicious Healthy Sweet Potato Blondies are a healthier take on blondies. Lower in added sugar, made with wholemeal flour and a generous serve of sweet potato, these blondies are a must bake.


  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato (250g raw) – see note
  • 125g butter melted
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips (50g)
  • 1 1/4 cup plain wholemeal flour (150g)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder


  1. Prepare your sweet potato and set aside to cool (see note)
  2. Preheat your oven to 175c and grease and line a 27.5cm x 17.5cm x 3.5cm slice pan
  3. Melt the butter in the microwave and allow to cool slightly
  4. In a large bowl whisk together the sweet potato, butter, maple syrup, vanilla and eggs and whisk thoroughly together
  5. Add in the white chocolate chips and then fold through the flour and baking powder until just combined
  6. Spread into the prepared slice pan and bake at 175c for around 15 minutes or until the brownie is just cooked through and the top bounces back when lightly touched and a skewer inserted comes out mostly clean
  7. Allow to cool in the pan before removing and cutting into 16 portions


To make the sweet potato, boil in as little water as possible for around 15 minutes until soft and cooked through but not overly mushy. Drain any remaining water then mash the sweet potato and set aside to cool before making the blondies.
