Sweet potato brownies 195 calories each

Who knew you could get the fudge-like texture you love in a brownie, using steamed sweet potato as the main ingredient?

This is a fantastic recipe from the Christmas and Entertaining Cookbook that can be made ahead to serve over the holidays.

The kids can even help load the ingredients into the food processor (and lick the bowl, naturally).

It also works well as an edible gift, if you just wrap it nicely with baking paper and string, or pop it in a tin.
