Sweet Potato Brownies -January, 2019.

PALEO DIETs are rich in nutrients and free of unprocessed ingredients. I seriously doubt that 12,000 years ago folks foraged cacao beans, pulverized them with clubs and made chocolate treats.

However, something sweet can calm even the wildest cave-peeps. So, paleo brownie recipes have been created. I’ve taken liberties with my recipe and even do the non-paleo thing to serve these on top of vanilla ice cream. I like to think of these brownies as “paleo-inspired.

This recipe is on pages of 68 and 69 of Fat Witch Bake Sale cookbook.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup cooked mashed sweet potato
  • 2 large eggs
