I got really excited when this recipe got posted because not only do I love baking paleo goods, but I already had everything in my kitchen so I didn't have to run out to the grocery store. All these ingredients were already stocked and if you are a paleo person like myself there is a good chance you should have everything too.

I didn't have an 8x8, but had a a glass longer pan, no idea the measurements, but I would say a little smaller than a cake pan. I would stick with the 8x8 if you have it so your brownies are a little thicker than mine. I chucked the batter in the pan after spraying it with some coconut cooking spray and popped it in the oven for 30min. In the meantime I licked the bowl and spoon...the batter is surprisingly super good. I don't recommend doing this, but dang it was good! Finally after 30min I got to take this wonderous baked good out of the oven. It says to let it cool...umm yea I couldn't wait, they smelled WAY to good!
Sure enough these brownies did not disappoint. They were a little gooey and super soft. You can't even taste the sweet potato in them at all!! Just the chocolate and the chocolate chips. The texture is similar to one of a regular brownie also, just a little more crumbly. After I downed about 3, I put them in the fridge. They are even better after refrigerated and stay together much better! So I decided to eat some more later...the next morning...afternoon...evening..right now..yea they don't last long! Soooo good and such an amazing recipe that I would have NEVER thought of. I make these now ALL the time since they are great for the chocolate fix I need from time to time, now I just need to work on that self control...
Do yourself a favor, make the brownies! I just ate two, they are going to help the tons of snatches I have to do tomorrow.

|Ok so these look nothing like PALEOMG and they look gross, I'm sorry, just trust me they are good|
