Fudgy sugar free sweet potato brownies with chocolate icing

When 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge member Rebecca Garofoletti shared the photo of her sweet potato brownies that she made from her own recipe, more than 200 people liked it and many asked for the recipe, so here it is!

Rebecca says, Because you know I have nothing better to do on a Sunday night then reorganise my freezer, I found a kilo of mashed sweet potato in there from a few months ago when my son was still letting me spoon feed him.

Now he eats finger foods only and I need the freezer space so what do I do, I make sweet potato brownies. Total experiment of my own recipe but they turned out amazing.

They are vegan, gluten free, grain free, refined sugar free and super fudgy and my guinea pig hubby loved them!’

Rebecca made a double batch and now has ‘32 servings of brownie in the fridge!’
