• Nutritious Brownies with Yam Frosting

    So Tyler really wanted to try this recipe out that he found on The Tasty K. So I went out and grabbed the ingredients I could find and we whipped it together changing just a few things along the way. It’s such an interesting idea to add beans and veggies to treats. I really think that this is a great way to trick your kids and yourself into getting some good nutrients.


    Let’s be honest, we all love brownies but if only there was a better way… this would be it.
