Low Sugar Fudgey Chocolate Banana Brownies
If you’re looking for a treat but don’t want to feel that inevitable guilt afterwards, I recommend this brownie recipe. I did a bit of research before having an experiment on Sunday morning -that seems to be the time I always have a little play in the kitchen. I usually let the kids join in and have a bit of fun whilst doing it. This week we created these yummy little treats that surprised and delighted us.
I have found that most recipes out there have a lot of sugar and aren’t really that healthy. Delicious, but definitely not that healthy. I have tried making one so that I can feel good about indulging in something a bit naughty but not so much that I regret it straight after. I think these hit the mark. My daughter loves them. They are fudgey brownies with a nice glossy finish to them. The dark chocolate makes it rich and the banana gives a fruity twist. I am sure some of you will still prefer the calorific sugary recipes, but for those of you that are trying to keep an eye on the diet, give these a try.
One large banana
50g dark chocolate
One teaspoon of brown sugar
2 tbsp honey
100g cup of cocoa powder
2 free range eggs (whisked)
2-3 Drop of vanilla extract
2 tsp oil (I use rapeseed oil)
- Whisk the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
- Mash a ripe banana with a fork and combine with the other wet ingredients in another both.
- Melt the dark chocolate with some water in a microwave for 20-30 secs. Be careful to stop and start this so you don’t burn the chocolate. Add to the wet ingredients and mix.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until fully combined.
- Preheat your oven to 150C
- Line a metal cake tin with a little bit of oil and add the mixture.
- Place in the centre of the oven for 25-30 mins.
- Allow to cool before cutting. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
