Banana protein fudge brownies – grain free, dairy free option

These are one of those things that some people would call a failure.. but there not!! they are so soft and gooey in the center and the coconut sugar make the outside crunchy when warm and turns chewy when they are cooled. I don’t know what else to call them because they are not light like a cake but they are soft and gooey like chocolate fudge brownies.. So banana fudge brownies they are with a boost of protein powder to make them a complete meal replacement.. no grains,  healthy fats and good low gi carbs!

Makes: 12 muffin tin brownies

Dry Ingredients:

1 cup activated almonds
2 tbs pepitas
2 tbs sunflower seeds
1 ¾ cup coconut sugar
1 scoop pea protein powder
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla powder
½ tsp ground mixed spice

½ tsp bi-carb soda

 Wet ingredients:

2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup butter, use coconut oil  or olive oil for dairy free
½ cup oat, nut or dairy milk - Use nut or diary for Paleo, Oat or nut for dairy free!
