Who doesn’t love a dense homemade brownie when that sweet tooth comes calling? If you answered NO, then I’m sorry, but this recipe just isn’t for you ;). I’ve previously made brownies using Katie Anne Rutherford’s black bean version, but decided to take on the task of creating my own recipe that didn’t seem as time intensive or require the use of beans as the base. I’ve tried a few times actually and failed miserably, but for some reason, the macro recipe Gods prevailed and allowed the creation of this most delicious and high protein treat <3!
So, you might be asking what’s different about this recipe compared to some of the others I’ve tried? Well, I think the secret ingredient is the bananas themselves. They help keep the brownie dense and more fudge-like, all while staying super moist like the best chocolate cake you’ve ever had. I know most people probably shy away from bananas because they feel they are too high in carbohydrates, but as you can see from the photo above, the approximate macros per serving (recipe yields 12 servings) is more macro friendly than any store bought protein treat that I’ve ever seen, and tastes a heck of a lot better too…but, I may be a bit biased LOL!
