Paleo Fudge Brownies with Sweet Potato

I have met very few people who don't like brownies. However, my husband would rather just not eat them unless they have ice cream on top. That I am not sure I totally get. Well these brownies have three sweet potatoes in them and he didn't need ice cream on top to enjoy them.  Winning anyone?

The sweet potatoes actually act as a sweetener in this recipe, but they also make these brownies super fudge like. So, thanks to the sweet potato there is no refined sugar in these babies. If you have a kid who won't eat vegetables... just stand back and laugh as they devour these. This recipe doesn't disappoint give it a try.
