No one can turn down a brownie especially when it is a fudgy one. This has got to be one of my favorite desserts especially as a kid. I remember when I drizzled peanut butter on a batch as a kid and it shook me. It was too damn good, but these are better! Paleo fudge brownies are better than your favorite mix.
Many paleo recipes use either avocado or a nut butter to crate that fudge texture. I wanted to do something a bit different as avocados are high FODMAP and not everyone can tolerate a lot of nut butter. Using a freshly roasted sweet potato is key!
When it comes to the sweet potato is it also adds sweetness especially if you cook it for a solid hour. Also, pro tip, after removing the skin spread some nut butter on it for a quick snack (you won’t regret it)! What you’ll love about these brownies is they’re super easy to make and you can have them in your freezer all the time.
If you are a fan of a more cake like brownie check out these thicc coconut flour brownie here! Either way you can’t go wrong with a paleo brownie in my opinion. Let’s cut into this recipe!
