The sweet potato has certainly earned its reputation as a healthy and delicious food that needs very little, if anything, added to it to get great flavor. A perennial favorite, sweet potatoes make great summer side on the grill or warm winter dishes when the mercury drops.
Sweet potatoes as dessert, however, are just as scrumptious as their savory counterparts. My new favorite treats are these sweet potato brownies. Full of rich cocoa flavor and a subtle hint of sweetness, this recipe is gluten-free, contains no refined sugars and is loaded with all the incredible anti-inflammatory properties sweet potatoes bring to the table.
Great for picnics, parties or just a healthy snack, these brownies will find permanent place in your recipe rolodex.
