Sweet Potato Protein Brownies

My month of no refined sugar seems to be dragging on.  When you limit something or cut it out why is that the thing you want the most?!?  Murphy's Law or something...lol. Well, my friends, we are in luck!!  This brownie recipe calls for NO sugar, NO flour, and NO dairy.  I know what you are thinking...how is that even possible? or I bet they taste like crap?  First of all - it is possible and second - they taste great!!  Very fluffy and moist in fact.  The only thing I think I would omit next time is the cinnamon - but that is a personal preference - so if you love chocolate and cinnamon then have at it!
