Guilt Free Brownies

Just as a quick disclaimer I am not vegan however I do avoid a lot of dairy products in my diet so these are a great way to have something sweet to satisfy a craving but are also relatively healthy for you. If you try this recipe let me know your thoughts!!

These brownies if using banana do have a strong banana flavour so if you would prefer a more 'authentic' tasting brownie I recommend switching the banana out for avocado instead as it is undetectable and replicates a creamy and buttery brownie texture without using butter. Avocado is a healthy fat so this is a great way to incorporate it into your diet without the taste. Of course if you are not vegan or dairy free then you can substitute certain products for alternatives, this recipe can be adapted for any dietary requirements. This recipe is also gluten free (I have got you all covered)

You Will Need:

2 cups ripe bananas OR 2 cups ripe avocado (the riper the better)
1/2 cup of vegan protein powder
1 cup of smooth peanut butter OR almond butter (or your nut butter preference)
1/4 cup of raw cacao powder

1. Preheat your oven to 170C and line a baking tray with baking parchment.
2. Using a large bowl mash either your bananas or avocado together and combine with the peanut butter until smooth. Stir in protein powder and cacao powder until the consistency is smooth and lump free.
3. Pour mix and spread evenly onto a tray - you can add any toppings you like at this stage. I think adding goji berries would be lovely.
4. Bake in the oven for 13-18 minutes or until baked through.




  1. Yum!����

  2. From looking at the photos, these sound really good! And the best part must be not feeling guilty eating them! xx
