Vegan Flourless Banana & Chocolate Brownies
Being the chocolate addict that I am (let’s stop kidding ourselves, we all are!), I am always trying to come up with different recipes that have a rich chocolate taste but which are also healthy and low in sugar. Vegan banana & chocolate brownies are the perfect dessert.
I am also not too keen on spending endless hours in the kitchen so quick and easy is what I strive for!
So, without further ado, here’s this week’s recipe that will leave you begging for more: quick, healthy, gluten-free, refined sugar-free & delicious vegan banana & chocolate brownies!
- 2-3 ripe bananas (appr. 1 cup)
- 1/2 cup of cocoa powder ( you can use more or less depending on how rich you want the taste to be)
- 1/3 cup smooth almond butter
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter (optional – I am a bit of a nut!)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Grease and set aside a small cake pan.
- Preheat the oven at 170 C.
- Mash up the bananas with a fork.
- Melt the nut butter over a stove top.
- After the butter has melted add it to a large bowl and mix in the rest of the ingredients: vanilla extract, cocoa powder, bananas and peanut butter. Stir and mix well.
- Add the mixture to the cake pan and place it in the oven for 20-25 minutes. It should still be moist when you take it out of the oven.
- Let it cool on the kitchen counter for about an hour and then cut it into square pieces. Voila!
