When chocolate is a family passion it comes natural to try to find creative recipes that are able to satisfy your kids’ (&husband’s) chocolate cravings and at the same time stay on the healthy side. I learned from my experience that if I present a recipe as “healthy/good for you” to my family prior to the food tasting, they will always find something that doesn’t work. Something will be always missing or “not be the same as the original recipe”. As I said, I learned from my mistakes.
That’s why when I offered the chocolate brownies to the kids and to Albert I simply didn’t say anything extra than “I just prepared some chocolate brownies, would you like to try?????”
The two 6×6 inches pans were GONE by the end of the day (I confess, I helped a lot too…).
These chocolate brownies are decadent and light at the same time, moist and creamy. We really really love them and they are a real crowd pleaser. I bake them for every social gathering and I really enjoy the surprised face of my friends after the first bite when I say “take another piece, they are healthy and vegan!!”
Yes, these brownies are egg-free, dairy-free and oil-free. Secret ingredients??? banana and apple sauce!!
Here you are the ingredients to fill two 6×6 pans:
And that’s how simple is to prepare the recipe:
– Mash two very (VERY!!!) ripe bananas in a medium bowl with a fork. Add cane sugar, apple sauce, water and white vinegar. If you want to prepare a super easy homemade applesauce for this recipe (and not only), check this link.
– Add the dry ingredients: flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking soda, salt. Mix
– Add 1/2 of the quantity of the chocolate chips (I used semi sweet ones) and stir
– Divide the batter between the two pans. Sprinkle on top the remaining quantity of chocolate chips
Bake the brownies in the preheated oven at 350F/180C for 40/45 minutes or up until a toothpick inserted in the center of the brownies will come our dry. ENJOY!!!
