Vegan Sweet Potato Brownies

by - 11/29/2018 12:00:00 AM

Last week while doing some last minute Thanksgiving shopping. I picked up a huge bag of sweet potatoes from Costco. I'm a huge fan a sweet potato. I typically, will batch cook a couple of sweet potatoes for my meal plan. Not only are they a better choice, but they are also super yummy. One of the other recipes that I love to make with sweet potatoes is good ole sweet potato pie. This is defiantly one of my all-time favorites when it comes to sweet potatoes. What I've noticed is that I'm probably one of the few people that actually bake my sweet potatoes for recipes (please correct me if I'm wrong) I see a lot of people actually boiling them. Steaming them is probably another great options, however, I love the results of placing them in the oven. What I love about this recipe is that it's super easy to make and so yummy. It's also a healthier brownie option and is really diet friendly.

Are you a fan of sweet potatoes?
