Deeeelicious chocolate brownies

By Zinzino

Chocolate brownies have always been a ‘sometimes’ food… until now. Maybe, you could squeeze in a little chocolate snack every now and then but forget cooking it. That would just evoke way too much guilt.

Chocolate brownies? Um, in my dreams!

Well, what if we told you this recipe isn’t just healthy but, in fact, good for you. It’s all thanks to a few super foods and a very special ingredient (which we’ll tell you about soon).

The perfect after exercise, mid-afternoon or dessert snack.

Okay, here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 bananas, mashed

  • Pinch of pink salt
  • ½ cup cacao powder
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp bicarb soda
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar
