Sweet Potato Brownies (A Paleomg recipe macro-fied!)

I was craving something sweet, but after making several batches of the real deal chocolate cookies, I decided I needed to lay off the sugar! I found these brownies via Paleomg, they are all good-for-you ingredients so I thought i’d give them a try!

These brownies are delicious! However, I made a rookie mistake and grabbed a yam instead of a white sweet potato at the store! I think this made a huge difference, because yams are much more moist and watery than a white sweet potato, so my brownies never totally set…. still super tasty though, so I think you will love them!

The macros are higher in fat, but this just means they are super satiating and a little serving goes a long way! I’m not saying you aren’t going to want to eat the whole pan… but you won’t regret making this delicious treat!
