Sweet Potato Avo Brownies (V,GF)

These brownies are gooey and decadent without being full of sugar and gunk.  I’ve been having these as an afternoon snack with a little vegan yogurt and berries and, you guys, its pretty amazing.  I’ve also been pinching off a little and forming them into little “bites” for my green smoothie bowl in the morning. Any time I can justify brownies for breakfast, I’m in. Not to mention that my smoothie bowls taste like ice-cream but leave me feeling energized and satisfied.  Hip-Hip-Hooray–Dessert for breakfast!
