I tampered too much with this interesting recipe, so I'd better not rate it; I used Stevia sugar instead of the Splenda, 3 whole eggs instead of the whites, 1c whole wheat pastry flour, 1/4c all-purpose flour, and no oatmeal. I left out the baking powder per another reviewer who wanted less cake texture. Perhaps because of my other revisions, I was disappointed with the texture, but the flavor was good. I wouldn't say it's a dead ringer for a normal brownie, but it is a good treat, and with sooo much less guilt!

I cut the recipe in half and baked it in an 8 inch pan. I added a little more sweet potato in place of the butter, and I used a whole egg instead of the two and a half egg whites called for. I also left out the baking powder to make the brownies fudgier. I used extra flour in place of the oatmeal. They came out great. The texture is a little different from usual brownies, but they taste great. You can't tell that there are sweet potatoes in them at all.

These were pretty good. Definitely more of a cakey brownie, lacked a bit of fudginess, but overall were a good use of sweet potatoes.
