As a chocolate enthusiast, I've tried many gluten-free brownie recipes. There are lots of great ones out there, especially black bean brownies. However, I've found that when the brownie craving hits, I don't always have black beans in my pantry. Sometimes, when you're having a lazy movie night in your pajamas, running to the grocery store is just too much work.
That's why I love this recipe. It only has 6 ingredients, all of which I usually have laying around, for an easy and quick chocolate fix. You can use what ever you have on hand- peanut butter, almond butter, anything goes! It's also vegan and sweetened almost entirely by natural sugars.
It's a healthier version of your favorite brownies, with the same deliciousness. Win!

2 ripe bananas
1 cup almond butter (or peanut butter, or wow butter)
1 tsp vanilla
4 tbsp cocoa powder
3 tbsp almond milk or milk of your choice
1 cup dark chocolate chips
¼ tsp salt
In a food processor, blend everything but the chocolate chips until the batter is smooth. Add the chocolate chips and pulse until incorporated. Pour batter into greased square pan. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.
*Note: As the brownies rely on the sugars from ripe bananas, make sure you actually use ripe ones! Green bananas won't give the same sweetness.
