Recipe by Roosie

I love sweet potatoes; I love brownies. So, why not?! This recipe was put out by the Wheat Foods Council. This could easily be halved and made in an 8"x8" pan.

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!
