3-Ingredient Fudgy Brownies (gluten-free, vegan, paleo)


I’ve been focussing on eating less-processed, more whole, and lower sugar foods this summer. A few months ago, I found myself eating way too may “healthier” processed foods, and not paying attention to added sugar in anything. I’ve been focussing on eating more “real-food” protein sources instead of relying on my protein powders or snack bars. I feel a lot better. I hardly ever need my afternoon cup of coffee, and I don’t experience the “sugar crash” at the end of the day.three-ingredient brownies, 3-ingredient brownies- paleo brownies, whole30 brownies, whole30 compliant, whole30 ingredients, whole30 cravings, whole30 dessert, low carb, Whole Foods, dairy free, organic, vegan, plant based, low calorie, healthier food, summer, light, trick your kids, banana, cashew, nut butter, almond butter, banana, low carb, plant based desserts, baking, healthy food, back to school treats, vegan cosmic brownie, gluten free, dairy free, no peanuts, legume free, diet, weight loss brownies, healthy snacking
These 3-ingredient brownies are WHOLE as it gets. A few years ago, I was on peanut butter and banana brownie kick. I made a recipe similar to this one with peanut butter, brownie, egg, and sweet potatoes. It was one of my favorites! Since I needed to use up the bananas before they went bad, I decided to make a similar recipe using only two other ingredients: almond butter & banana.

These brownies are going to impress you! They are fudgy, super chocolatey and just as sweet as the real deal. We don’t give bananas enough credit for their sugary goodness. You could probably trick your kiddos into thinking that they are eating the most demand brownies. The top of the brownie’s texture reminded me of those cosmic brownies I used to eat as a kid.

This recipe makes 12 brownies, and the nutrition facts are pretty good!

THREE INGREDIENTS

And just because I used three ingredients for these brownies doesn’t mean you have to. You can use this recipe as your “base” and then add things you like such as cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate chips, or icing on top!

    I use these same ingredients to make chocolate pudding so I knew these would be good! Mine took a little longer to bake because I didn’t have the right pan. Lol They turned out super fudgey! I’ll definitely be baking these again!

    Hello Taralynn,

    I will put this recipe in my “to-do list”, the texture seems incredible.

    1. I cook very often a 3 ingredients “vegetable cream” : rice milk + almond cream + a vegetable (carotts work very well). Fast, healthy, delicious. I also add the spice of my choice.
    2. More than an healthier season, the period plays an important role : it is difficult to maintain a healthy diet during the Christmas season, or in holidays, when you just want to taste everything because everything is a discovery.
    3. I prefer brownies without walnut, not because I don’t like it, but because chocolate recipes contains enough fat with the chocolate + almond cream/butter combo. Adding oleaginous seems then “too much” and can tire the liver. For me, the fewer ingredients, the better : for the taste and for our body (when the combo is simple, our body can digest it easier).

    I agree, adding sugar is unnecessary in the presence of a naturally sweet fruit such as banana !

      I agree with #2 for sure! & that vegetable cream sounds amazing! I may have to try that out.
