SWEET POTATO CINNAMON BROWNIES 
INGREDIENTS:
Brownies
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp cinnamon, ground
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 cup cooked sweet potato
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
6 egg whites
Olive oil cooking spray
Icing
1/2 cup low-fat plain cream cheese
3 tbsp honey
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon, ground
1 tbsp water (optional)
INSTRUCTIONS:
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Prepare brownies: Combine flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl and set aside. In a food processor, combine sweet potato, honey, oil and vanilla. Purée until combined and smooth.
Gradually mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients, until just combined; do not over-mix. 
In a separate dry bowl, whisk egg whites until fluffy. Then, using a rubber spatula, gently fold egg whites into batter.
Lightly spray sides of baking pan (9 x 9 x 2-inch) with cooking spray.  Pour batter into pan and place into oven. Bake for about 16 to 18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove pan from oven and allow brownies to cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes.
While brownies are cooking or cooling, prepare icing: In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, honey, cocoa powder and cinnamon. Whisk until incorporated, adding 1 tbsp water if mixture is hard to whisk. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
Loosen brownie and turn slab out onto a cutting board or platter. Cut into 16 pieces, wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. 
To serve, divide icing evenly over each brownie and serve immediately. Leftovers may be kept refrigerated in a resealable container for up to 2 days
