#RECIPEFRIDAY: Sweet Potato Protein Brownies (or bites)!

Good morning everyone and welcome to the second edition of...

#RECIPEFRIDAY!

If you're new to the club...

This day is dedicated to sharing your favourite recipe of the week! (Something you've made and loved over the past 7 days and want to share for the very first time or again!)

And as for me...

It means sharing with you a new recipe I've put together, tried, tested and ate! ;)

This week...

I have something Mmmmm Mmmm good and that is...

Sweet Potato Protein Brownies!


And let me tell you...

It is gooooood! (Well, at least I think it is!)

I should mention...

Because I love anything bite sized...

I also made these brownies into little bites of goodness too! (Nothing like offering a variety of ways to eat up something tasty!)


As always (and as some of you may already know)...

I like to keep my recipes simple so...

Here's proof on how easy it is to make this yummy, protein packed dish!

    1. Great brownie variety!!

      I like to roast sweet potatoes and sprinkle with a little cinnamon or garlic (depending on if I want the potatoes to be sweet or savory).

      Happy Friday!!
