Sweet Potato Brownies
Two of my favorite things in the world are sweet potatoes and chocolate. And guess what? When you combine the two, they create the most decadent and guilt-free brownies ever!
I decided to put a healthy spin on the classic chocolate-lovers treat and I must say that mine are just as delightful. Rich in flavor, but also packed with healthy fats, fiber, and Vitamin A! To cook the sweet potato, pierce it with a fork, wrap in a damp paper towel and place in microwave for 3:00 minutes. Cook until soft. I hope you like these as much as I do!

- Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet.
- Add the sweet potato and mix until well combined.
- Pour brownie batter into baking pan and bake for 22-30 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. (I have a super hot oven that cooked them in 22 minutes!)

- Try not to eat the entire pan at once!
