Naturally sweetened, super-fudgy, and full of melty choc-chips…these little bites of heaven are definitely worth whipping up! Get together a few simple, wholesome ingredients, and you’ll have this delicious healthy treat in no time.
These brownies are a fab way to use up overripe bananas. In fact, the riper the better! With those, and a little natural maple syrup, the bars are perfectly sweet without any refined sugar in sight.
Using oat flour means this chocolate treat is good enough for breakfast. They’re packed with fibre, along with vitamins, and healthy fats. Who ever said chocolate had to be unhealthy, was definitely wrong :).
If you fancy, you can add any extras you love. Dried fruit, chopped nuts, and seeds all work amazing, and all add their own little health-burst. Swapping 30g of oat flour for a scoop of vegan protein powder also makes for an amazing work-out snack.
