This brownie is healthy. No … seriously.

Bananas foster brownie

Inspired by this recipe

I love chocolate. This is an undeniable fact. Brownies are one of those foods that you’re pretty much forced to give up when you decide to live a healthy lifestyle. Finding a recipe for a healthy brownie that is not a plank of wood is like discovering the Rosetta stone of healthful desserts. This recipes truly speaks to the former fat kid in me. It’s really hard to believe that this is healthy, and packed full of fiber, protein, and vitamins and minerals, because it tastes so good.

Ingredients for brownie

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 8 dates
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2/3 cup milk

Run the dates through a blender or food processor to form a paste, then combine with remaining ingredients. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes in a 8×8 pan. Batter will be thick. The brownie by itself is a little dry, but once the recipe is done it will be delicious, I plan on perfecting the brownie by itself soon.

Icing ingredients

  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein (optimum 100% whey is what I used)
  • enough milk that the protein forms a paste when stirred in, but isn’t too thin
  • sprinkling of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Put the protein powder into a bowl, and then pour in a little milk at a time, stirring until a paste forms, then add in vanilla and cinnamon to taste.

Cut up a banana and put around and on a slice of brownie, and then drizzle the icing over it. This is really a great dessert.
