Gluten Free Sweet Potato Brownies

I usually spend my Sundays with my family using nap time to meal plan and grocery shop for the upcoming week however I found myself with a quite a bit of produce leftover from the week on the verge of going bad. I don’t use the word “hate” very often but I really truly HATE wasting food!!!

Top of my must use list: 2 baked sweet potatoes and quinoa!

Using the two sweet potatoes was a pretty easy decision! I had remembered seeing a brownie recipe a while back and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to give it a try!!! My hubs has recently gone gluten free so I wanted to make sure it was something the entire family could enjoy!

  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees
  3. Mash sweet potatoes and add: eggs, coconut oil, honey, vanilla

My only advice – Try not to eat the entire pan! I had 1/4 of the pan gone within minutes and had to hide it from myself in the microwave!
