I Love Brownies.

I was craving a brownie recently and stumbled upon Anja’s Food 4 Thought’s awesome recipe.  I’d love to share it here with a few updates, so you can enjoy all of the chocolatey goodness.  Keep in mind, this is indeed a very healthy brownie, so don’t expect cake.  The banana flavor is also pretty strong, so if you aren’t a fan of bananas, modify the recipe.

Necessities:

Food processor
8×8 pan

1 cup almonds
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1/3 cup shredded coconut
pinch of salt
1/3 cup dates, chopped
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 banana, ripened
2 T. honey
1 oz dark chocolate, finely chopped

Finely chop the almonds in the food processor then add the flax, coconut, salt and dates. Pulse until well combined. Add the banana, honey and coconut oil and pulse until mixture sticks together.  Lastly, add the chocolate. Pulse again until the chocolate is mixed in.Place parchment paper into the pan, and press the mixture in as evenly as possible. Keep in the freezer if you want a cold treat!
