Preheat oven to 350º
Prepare an 8x8 glass pan with parchment paper, or grease with coconut oil.
In your high-speed blender, add ingredients in order listed above. Do not add chocolate chips to the blender.
Blend ingredients until smooth. Add in 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips. Stir with a long wooden spoon to combine.
Pour sweet potato brownie batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the balance of chocolate chips on the top of the batter.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until set. Let cool slightly before serving. Enjoy!
A note about raw cacao powder versus cocoa powder. Raw cacao is stronger, so you need to use less. It has a lot of health benefits, including iron and magnesium. Cocoa powder is the traditional chocolate baking ingredient. However, it's been processed so it no longer has any nutrition benefits. I vote for raw cacao powder always. Eat your chocolate and get that iron and magnesium into your diet!
