Sweet Potato and Hazelnut Brownies (Gluten Free/Vegan/No Refined Sugar)

Healthy gooey chocolate brownies, what's not to love. These brownies are packed with sweet potato and healthy fats and have no refined sugar. I was skeptical creating this recipe but it was an absolute successful. They are the perfect brownie consistency, rich in chocolate and have a delicious nutty taste due to the hazelnut meal.
