Chocolate + sweet potatoes = brownies 🤷🏻‍♀️ Yep, that’s right!! These moist sweet potato brownies are high in fibre and antioxidants. Hidden veggies like sweet potatoes are a plus for #pickyeaters For a finishing touch, you can add avocado frosting on top or a few extra dark chocolate chips on top.
