Sweet Potato Carob Brownies I made a few years back for a work colleague of mine who mentioned that having given these brownies to her child she wasnt able to tell that they hadn’t been made with chocolate – she wasn’t the wiser. Carob is a great alternative to chocolate and these gluten-free Sweet Potato Carob Brownies are lush.
