There is no secret, this is by far my favourite brownie recipe: easy, quick and healthier than traditional brownies. It does not contain additional sugar (except the chocolate chip) and I always use oat flour (blended oats) instead of traditional flour. Done in 45 minutes and perfect with fresh fruit, yoghurt or some peanut butter on top.
I have a couple of tips regarding this recipe, please scroll down to check them out!
- 1 cup oat flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 3 mashed bananas (medium size)
- 3 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tbsp cow milk or plant milk
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup chocolate chip (extra for the topping)
- Pre-heat the oven to 180C (fan)
- In a bowl, mix the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder and set it aside.
- In a large bowl, mash the bananas and add the egg, coconut oil, milk and vanilla extract, and mix it together.
- Add the flour mix to the banana mix, and combine it. Lastly, add the chocolate chip and stir it until well combined.
- Pour it into a tin, sprinkle some extra chocolate chip on top and bake it for approximately 30 minutes. Let it cool down before serving.
- Coconut oil: feel free to use butter or full-fat greek yoghurt as a substitute
- Cocoa powder: always use unsweetened and good quality cocoa powder. Instead of adding only cocoa powder, you can substitute some of it with powdered peanut butter or protein powder – this will result in a bit less chocolate-y flavour and you can boost the protein content in the brownies as well.
- Chocolate chip: I always use dark chocolate, but feel free to use milk or white chocolate if preferred.
Enjoy and until next time:
