Sweet Potato Brownies

I had some sweet potatoes in the cupboard so I thought I would have a go at Sweet potato brownies, I’ve seen recipes for these and was intrigued as to whether they actually tasted good. Safe to say, I thought they were delicious, and definitely gives the chocolatey hit without the nasties!
