Chocolate Barnana Brownies


This is a fast, 6 ingredient brownie that will satisfy any dessert craving yet still keep your clean eating lifestyle or diet on track.  It's a great post-workout protein source and quite yummy at that!

Oh yes.  I forgot to mention; it's not a misspelling.  My Chocolate Barnana Brownies are made with dried barnana; they are a simple and delicious brand of dried banana that makes an excellent treat or snack on its own.  I adore them because there is nothing in them save for organic bananas.  Add them into this brownie recipe and the result is simply divine.

Chocolate Barnana Brownies
Yields 8 to 10 little brownie bites


3/4 cup raw organic walnuts
1/2 cup raw organic almonds
1/2 cup barnana pieces (about 12-14 pieces)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons raw cacao powder or cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon sea salt (optional)


1.  Food process the nuts until they become fine and begin to break down.
2.  Add in the vanilla continuing to mix.
3.  Add the cacao powder (or cocoa), salt (if using) and barnana pieces.  Mix until well combined and mixture sticks together.
4.  Press the mixture into a mold or lined container.  Freeze for 10-15 minutes and then cut into desired cubes.  Optional: press extra walnut halves into the brownie bites.

press the dough into a lined container or dish for a more accurate shape

press the surface flat or roll smooth
After chilling for 10-15 minutes to firm up, remove and slice into squares

optional: press walnuts into the top

This is a mild yet somehow still rich and satisfying dessert.  The tangy yet sweet barnana pieces compliment the healthy nuts and rich cocoa nicely.  Delicious!
