Skinny sweet potato brownies

IMG_3185

I made a batch of these today & I won’t lie… They are DELICIOUS 👌🏻

I’ve been meaning to make these for quite a while now and after tasting the finished product I really don’t now why I left it so long…

Who knew that sweet potato’s and chocolate brownie mixture would be a match made in heaven. Rich, moist and super chocolaty… all the chocolate lovers out there will love these! A lot of people may think that using a vegetable in a dessert recipe is just wrong… well think again, it does work!!

They are not a very chunky brownie… This is a clean eating blog after all… But if you would like them thicker simply double up the ingredients but to me they are the perfect portion. These are so scrumptious I gotta tell ya, as filling as they are… its hard  NOT to eat more than one… I’m a sucker for chocolate! For that reason alone the rest of my batch are gone into the freezer!

Store in a closed container in the fridge for up to 3 days or pop in the freezer to enjoy later.

Hope you guys enjoy theses as much as me,

Aimee ❤
