So last week I made this banana chocolate cake, which is on the lighter side… it turned out well but I for one am not crazy about bananas.
This batch of brownies was incredible. It only takes 7 ingredients, 15 minutes to make… and you don’t have to feel that guilty about indulging.
I think the secret to making these amazing is to not skimp out on the ingredients – buy good quality stuff!! Here is a modified recipe:::
- 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp cocoa powder (I used Nestle TollHouse)
- 1 cup softened almond butter (I used Justin’s Classic Almond Butter)
- 1/2 cup + 3 tbsp pure maple syrup (you could sub this with agave)
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 & 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 3 tbsp milk (I used 2%)
- chocolate chips (optional- I used Ghirardelli)
Blend the oats in a food processor until very fine… then stir all ingredients (except milk) together until smooth. Add the milk if your batter is very dry. Pour the batter into a prepared 8×8 pan. Press some chocolate chips on top & bake at 325*F for 15 minutes.
These turned out fudgy and best of all – it didn’t feel like there was anything remotely light about them.
