Sweet Potato Brownies

I am not going to lie and try to convince you that these brownies are as good as conventional brownies but if like me you are looking for your children to eat as healthily as possible without feeling like they are missing out then this recipe is ideal.Β  These sweet, fruity brownies contain no flour or sugar so they really are up there on the health score and ideal for babies like Annabelle who have a cows milk allergy! I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
