Peppermint Sweet Potato Brownies

Paleo Peppermint Brownies

These sweet potato brownies are a great guilt free paleo dessert! (if you exclude the chocolate chips and peppermint candy canes) if not it is still pretty clean which is a success in my book, especially around christmas time! I changed the original sweet potato brownie a little bit by adding tapioca starch which made the texture even better, its not necessary but made a big difference and I obviously added peppermint. I hope you like it!

I think putting everything in the blender is one of the key parts in making sure that the brownies have the right texture, I use a blendtec, it is my very favorite blender that I have used! Click HERE to check it out.
