How to “Spice Up” Paleo Chocolate Brownie Bites
Double Chocolate Brownie Bites
If you are not as into mint chocolate flavor as I am, you can simply omit the mint extract.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownie Bites
Just like my original recipe, you can substitute the almond butter with peanut butter for that PB and chocolate explosion.
Chocolate Sea Salt Brownie Bites
Chocolate and Sea Salt are made for each other. Period.
Seed Butter instead of Nut Butter
If you are allergic to nuts, you could use sunflower butter which is super affordable at Trader Joes.
How to Store Mint Chocolate Brownie Bites
Allow these mint chocolate brownie bites cool completely. Store in an air tight container in room temperature for 3-4 days, in the fridge for a week or so. Or freeze them for months! (I doubt they will last that long before they are gone.)
I actually much prefer them being refrigerated or a little frozen. It’s almost like a mint chocolate chip ice cream but with extra chocolate.
Way more chocolate.

Paleo Mint Chocolate Brownie Bites
- 1 cup mashed sweet potato
- 1/2 cup almond butter

- 1/4 cup cacao powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chip
- 1 tsp sea salt
Prepare the Sweet Potato Puree
- Poke some holes in the sweet potatoes
- Bake at 350 F for an hour;
Steam in a pot or microwave them until soft
- Let the sweet potatoes cool. Peel the skins off of the sweet potatoes. They should be fairly easy to peel once they are softened
- In a mixing bowl, mash the sweet potatoes well with a fork
Prepare the Brownie Batter
- In a medium mixing bowl, combine sweet potato puree 1/2 cup almond butter, maple syrup (if using), mint extract and eggs. Mix well until smooth.
- Add 1/4 cup cacao powder, coconut flour, sprinkle of sea salt and baking soda. Mix well.
- Fold in 1/3 cup chocolate chips
Baking (Preheat the oven at 350F)
- Grease muffin pan or muffin cups. Pour brownie mixture into each muffin tin, filling until just full or 3/4 full.
- Sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chip on top. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out just clean. Allow them cool in the muffin pan completely.
- If you prefer more dense brownies, you can omit the coconut flour.
- If you prefer less sweet, you can omit the maple syrup. The sweet potatoes usually give plenty of sweetness to the brownie bites.
- When blending all the ingredients, you can using a food processor if it's easier. I usually just use a fork to whisk everything.
