    I have made these a few times and let me tell you……THEY ARE SO GOOD.
    I make them for my father and send them to him. He is diabetic and he loves his sweets. So I am always looking for healthier options for him. And when they are this good…I make them for my household as well.

    Here is the copy/paste recipe for anyone who can’t watch the video.

    ‘I Want To Marry You Brownies’ aka Chocolate Sweet Potato Brownies
    Recipe by:author Courtney Hamilton
    The secret behind these moist, super-chocolatey brownies? A Paleo, powerhouse ingredient: sweet potatoes!

    3 eggs
    ¼ cup maple syrup, or more to taste
    ½ cup melted coconut oil + extra for greasing
    ¾ cup almond meal
    1/3 cup cocoa powder
    1 t baking powder
    1 cup cooked sweet potato
    Optional: chocolate chips for topping
    Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease baking pan with coconut oil.
    Whisk together the eggs, syrup, and coconut oil until well combined. In a separate bowl, combine almond meal, cocoa powder and baking powder.
    Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet. Whisk in the sweet potato.
    Pour brownie batter into baking pan and bake for 30 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. If using chocolate chips, lightly press them on the brownie shortly after it comes out of the oven.
