For the chocolate brownie cupcakes:

For the chocolate frosting:

  • 1 3/4 cup diced sweet potato or about 1 medium sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup mashed avocado or about 1 medium avocado
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup pitted dates soaked in boiling water to soften
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. salt


  • Preheat oven to 350. Line a muffin tin with silicone baking cups or spray with cooking spray.
  • Mash bananas in a bowl until mostly smooth (there can be some lumps) and stir in the almond butter and cocoa powder until well combined.
  • Evenly distribute the mixture among 12 cups in the muffin tin.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes or until brownies are cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, steam or boil the sweet potatoes in a pot until soft. Once cooked, put them in a bowl of ice cold water to cool.
  • Soak the dates in a bowl of boiling water to soften for at least 20 minutes.
  • Combine the sweet potato with the remaining ingredients in a food processor or powerful blender until smooth.
  • Place the frosting in the fridge for about a half an hour to harden a bit.
  • Pipe or spread the frosting onto the cupcakes with a knife. Serve immediately or store in the fridge for up to four days or in the freezer for up to a month.


** These cupcakes are not overly sweet. If serving these to adults, you may wish to add a couple tablespoons of maple syrup or desired sweetener to the icing to sweeten it up a bit more, to taste.
