Substitutions when making my brownies:

You can swap the sweet potato for pumpkin (I did this for Halloween here). Also, you can swap the buckwheat flour for spelt or oat flour or use wheat flour or gf flour.

You could also substitute the tahini in these tahini brownies for peanut butter for a different taste!
