Billy’s Breakthrough Banana Brownies Recipe

It’s no secret that we’ve been putting a little life into living these last few days (and rightly so)


From juicy (I hope) turkey….


To warm velvety, creamy, rich and Indulgent Chocolate!


And I’m all for having the REAL thing and enjoying your food


BUT…


Something has to give, right?


And instead of starting some detox where you starve yourself again


^^^ Cue the unrestricted binge…


What if you could create simple, yet delicious and nutritious sweet treats that the whole family (and guests) all love?


Well, this is where Fit For Life Body Transformation member, Billy, comes in with her ‘breakthrough banana brownies’


^^^ Yes, it’s got to the stage where Billy tells me what to eat (rumours have it that cooking lessons are coming soon ;-))


Why do I describe it as ‘breakthrough’?


1) It’s only got 100 calories per slice (your brownie in Starbucks has 410 calories)

^^^ Yes, this is fine occasionally. But switching this everyday could equate to nearly 25 lbs of fat in a year!


2) It gets you on your way to 3 of your 5 a day (those who have their 5 a day are more likely to lose weight and keep it off…not to mention reduce their risk of infections and diseases)


3) Guests didn’t even realise…


Anyway, here’s the recipe (which I adapted for Christmas and will share soon!):


Ingredients (serves 9):


* 1.5 bananas

* 20 g tahini (almond butter / peanut butter work too)

* 60 ml coconut milk (almond milk works too)

* 17 g coconut flour (almond flour works too)

* 55 g cocoa powder

* 1/2 tbsp cinnamon

* Pinch of salt

*1 tsp vanilla extract

* 1/2 tsp baking powder

* 1 egg

* 1 handfuls of baby spinach (Oh YEAH)..

* 10 g vanilla protein powder

* 28g 100% dark chocolate nibs / drops / chopped (75% plus would work)

* Optional: Stevia for added sweetness!


Method

1) Line a tin with baking parchment


2) Combine bananas, spinach, tahini, vanilla, milk and blend


3) Mix the flour, protein powder, cocoa, salt, and baking powder


4) Mix the wet and dry ingredients together and throw in the chopped chocolate


5) Pour on to baking tray, swirl some tahini on top and bake for 30 minutes. 


6) Cool for 10 minutes and slice when cold!


Let me know how you get on!
