Sweet Potato Brownie Slice

Sweet Potato Brownie Slice

Alot of people speak negatively about adding vegetables in baked goods and that this is a diet culture food, but you know me, I don't like to label food. I'm all for a delicious and gooey chocolate brownie, but I also like to experiment in the kitchen and for my gluten free people, this is an alternative that you could try. And if you aren't gluten free, you might like the texture of this one too!
