2 Ingredient Banana Brownies


I was floored when I found this recipe for banana brownies! The ingredients are essential for heart health, plus it's a super easy recipe. Obviously they don't taste like real brownies, but it's a fun way to try to incorporate nutrient rich ingredients into your diet. The Recipe: In a large bowl, mash 3 over ripe bananas. Add 6 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder and mix together. (I had to use an electric blender to get the lumps and bumps out). Grease a small pan (I prefer coconut oil to give it a bit more taste) and pour the batter in. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Let the brownies completely cool, and then refrigerate for an hour. Cut into pieces and serve. Side Bar: My normal brownie pan is full of Clean Eating Peanut Butter Squares (Click the link to get to the recipe) https://www.soulrunners.club/post/clean-eating-protein-bars-learntorun , but the cake pan worked just as well. Why We Love them: Bananas are full of potassium. A potassium-rich diet can help lower blood pressure, and people who eat plenty of potassium have up to a 27% lower risk of heart disease. Cocoa powder is rich in theobromine, which helps to reduce inflammation and can protect you from diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. "Electrolytes help us to train and perform well in sports, so we need to keep them in balance. If we are deficient in any of the electrolytes it can lead to muscle cramping – particular in the legs – side stitches, or stomach cramps. While running we lose some electrolytes through our sweat – in particular potassium and sodium" (Kosuthova, 2021) So eat up friends! Try it out and let us know what you think!
