Sweet Potato Brownies

Sweet Potato Brownies

Sweet potatoes and brownies are for sure two things that I would never have dreamed of putting together. But when combined the do make for a decadent dessert.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup Splenda
5 egg whites
1/2 tbsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup cooked sweet potato, without skin, mashed
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 x 12-inch baking pan. Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg whites one at a time, beating after each addition. Scrape the bowl well. Add remaining ingredients except the pecans. Mix well. Spread batter in pan. Top with pecans and bake until the brownies are firm in the center, about 30 minutes.
