I promise healthy and brownie can really be used together in this sentence though. Observe.
Killer Dark Chocolate Banana Brownies
1 small over-ripened banana
1/2 cup sugar or equal amounts of Stevia (I used 5 packets)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
6 tablespoons egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened dark chocolate cocoa powder
1/4 cup flax seed meal (optional)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chunks (optional)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 inch square pan. In a bowl, smash banana with a fork. Stir in applesauce, vanilla extract and egg whites until well blended. Then, with a spatula, stir in all of the dry ingredients until mixture is just moistened. Stir in walnuts and chocolate chips. Pour into pan and bake for 20-30 minutes, depending on your oven. Insert toothpick until it comes out clean. Once they're cool, cut and top with a shake of pink sprinkles. :) Best if eaten warm. Pop in the microwave for 15-20 seconds before serving.
