Who doesn’t love brownies? I’d say most of us love brownies, and there’s nothing wrong with that unless you’re someone who has a hard time stopping at just one. If that’s you, try making a batch of these not-so-guilty brownies and see if they measure up to your taste standards. I made them for myself and my daughter, and admittedly, they were not sweet enough for my daughter – but, she’s a teenager who loves real cookies and brownies! As for me, they hit the sweet tooth right on the spot, and the texture was perfectly moist.
- 5 Chiquita Mini Bananas (the really small ones that fit in the palm of your hand)
- 1/2 cup natural crunchy peanut butter (preferably with oil visible in the jar)
- 2 tbsps cocoa or cacao powder
- 1 1/2 scoops Hammer Nutrition Chocolate-flavored Vegan Protein Powder
- 2 tbsps agave nectar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a square baking pan with a little oil from the peanut butter jar. Add all the ingredients to a blender, and pulse to a nice smooth doughy consistency. Transfer the dough mixture to the baking pan, and evenly press it out. Bake for approximately 20 minutes. Let it cool, then cut into 16 squares.
