Mixes from the Heartland Sweet Potato Brownies Review

Oh MY let me tell you! YOU DON'T want to MISS THIS!

Recently we had been out of town and a few hours after we got home we were to go out to eat with some friends. We have been trying to get together with this couple for over a year ya'll. Bet, you're glad we're only blogger friends! ha  Since I had been gone I was really stressed about the house not being clean but told Honey let's invite them over for dessert and coffee after our meal. Now, I'm already stressed about the condition of the house so the last thing I need to to be stressed over a dessert. I went to my gluten free pantry to see what I could whip up real fast that would be really good and I chose a "Gluten Free Sweet Potato Brownie Mix". Honey asked did I really want to try this, something we had never tried before, on our friends who had never been in our home and I thought about it and decided to dive in. I did a little tidying up and then put the Sweet potato brownies on to bake while I jumped in the shower.

Our meal was great at the restaurant we met at although I did get glutened! :( The minute I saw that it was buffet and saw the way it was laid out I knew I was in trouble, but our friends had already paid for us to eat so I ate a little but before I left the restaurant I felt the effects.

Anyway, when we got to the house we took the tour, Lord don't let them see all this dust, and then I offered them a brownie and coffee. Everyone said yes they wanted one and I said, they're gluten free, I guess that way if they turned out bad it was the lack of gluten's fault and not mine.

OH MY WORD these things were great! I could have eaten the whole thing, it made a 9x9 pan and we ate very little I put them in an airtight container and I can't wait until I can justify it and have another one or two or three. They were a little creamy but had a great texture and held together wonderfully. They reminded me of a cross between a sweet potato pie, which I love, and sweet potato bread. All I can say is this is defiantly another winner from Mixes from the Heartland
