We love these fudgy, decadent, refined sugar-free brownies. The secret ingredient? Sweet potatoes! Sweet potatoes give these brownies an extra fudgy texture and add just the right amount of sweetness.

Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease an 8×8 baking pan with oil of choice or line with parchment paper.

Combine flax eggs and all remaining ingredients (except chocolate chips) in a large mixing bowl until super smooth. Add chocolate chips.

Remove from oven and allow to cool before garnishing and serving.

**A flax egg is a vegan egg substitute, that is made up of ground flax seeds and water. After a few minutes, the mixture will begin to thicken and get goopy (like an egg) – and you have your flax egg!
