I'm doing things a little differently this week and posting a recipe instead of our usual "Recent Things" post as I couldn't share this with you yesterday due to lame internet! I think you'll forgive me once you find out how delicious these brownies are!
You see, Jesse and I are kinda sorta brownie addicts. We're constantly testing new recipes to "find the perfect healthy gluten free brownie" - but the truth is... we just like eating brownies.... especially when they're frosted.... frosted brownies are brilliant.
These brownies were somewhat of an unexpected success... You see, I kind of just threw things into my food processor (because I was being lazy and didn't want to stir), poured the mixture into a brownie tin, waited and, hey presto! I had seriously delicious brownies.
Did I mention these brownies had sweet potato in them? Because I kind of
forgot intentionally didn't tell Jesse about that part. That boy doesn't need to know there's vegetables in his brownies until after he's told me how delicious they are.
The conversation went a little like this....
"Oh yum.... yuuuuuummmmmmmm these are seriously good. Is this a new recipe?"
"Mhm... yup.... new recipe..."
"Well you should put it on the blog because they're seriously good"
"Oh you think? They don't taste like they have anything odd in them?"
"Oh good... because they're.... ummm..... sweet potato brownies...."
"Well you said they were good, right?"
"Yes..... but... they're.... sweet potato?..... How? Why? But they're really good.... reaaaallyyy good.... so I might just have to check for consistency and have another".
Jesse is not the consistency chief on SIL, but he likes to think that he is. You see, you can tell when a recipe is good because Jesse will need to check 'for consistency' all day long - ie: eat as many brownies as he possibly can before Kristy devours the rest.
These brownies are seriously good - but don't tell anyone they're sweet potato brownies until afterwards - because you know they'll try and nitpick if you do!
So let me give you the recipe >>
