Sweet Potato Brownies

Sweet Potato Brownies

Hello!  Who doesn’t just LOVE brownies?!  Brownies happen to be my all-time favorite dessert, so this recipe using healthy sweet potato as a main ingredient makes me smile even more!

Seriously, you won’t believe how moist and delicious these babies are.  If you’ve tried my other Healthy Brownies recipe, you’ll know that my love affair with brownies is well documented.  Up until now, I thought they were my fave, but after making these sweet potato brownies, I’m not so sure about that anymore.  I guess you’ll need to make them both and give me a review!

What makes these brownies so fabulous you ask?  Great question!  First of all, they are gluten-free!  Second, they are loaded with fiber, so they come in at 5 net carbs….yippee!!

Well enough already of me gushing about how delish they are, get yourself in the kitchen and make some for yourself!

Bon Appetit!
