Recipe: Sweet Potato Granola Brownies

d

As a mom of two toddlers, sneaking vegetables into unexpected dishes has become a habit. So when I saw brownie recipes floating around the internet that incorporated sweet potato, pumpkin and sometimes even avocado, I had to try a batch. These granola-topped cupcakes are inspired by a brownie recipe from PaleOMG, and are perfectly fudgy AND wheat-free. A wholesome and decadent Valentine’s Day treat for your loved ones of all ages!

Enjoy! Michele

 

 

Sweet Potato + Granola Brownies
  • 1 baked medium sweet potato
  • 3 eggs, whisked, or 3 flax eggs
