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.
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!
98 Calories, 11g Carbs, 3g Fiber, 6g Fat, 3g Protein, 4g Sugar
-Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
-3 Extra Ripe Bananas
-Salted OR Unsalted Almond butter.
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!
You can replace the almond butter with ANY nut butter of your choice.
My favorite part is how easy these brownies are to make, and you probably already have all the ingredients in your house!
Don’t let the batter go to waste. Grab a spatula and eat all the leftover batter! It’s the best part about making brownies.
Look how incredible they look! Hard to believe they’re made with only three ingredients. 😮 & if you want me to blog the sweet potato brownie recipe, let me know! It’s been a while since I’ve made them, but I’m sure I can figure out how I did it.
