Paleo Recipe: Sweet Potato Brownies

We find that the hardest part for many people when cleaning up their diet is getting rid of the sweet stuff. Cutting out processed sugar especially those awesome desserts we all love is really tough. Physically it’s almost like withdrawals, ridding your body of something toxic that it wants to much, and mentally we all know how comforting a nice sweet treat is.

Well, fret no more my friends. Here is a great Paleo brownie recipe courtesy of Coach Kroon. The most important part of Paleo is preparation and having good recipes to pull up anytime you want to make something is integral to staying clean. We are going to keep sharing some of our favorite recipes to give you some tips for your work in the kitchen.
