These healthy, hassle-free brownies are moist, decadent, and great for those who have eliminated added sugar from their diets! With only four ingredients, this easy recipe is the ideal way to stay on your new year's health kick without losing out on a sweet treat at the end of the day. We love the delicious combination of sweet, ripened bananas, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and the unexpected addition of nutty cashew butter - a necessity for ensuring your brownie batch doesn't have an overpoweringly banana flavor! This simple four-step dessert is perfect for serving to the kids, taking to your next potluck, or enjoying as a quick pick-me-up during an afternoon lull.
For those that do not like the taste of cashews, we recommend substituting this ingredient with one of NutMeg's other incredible, sugar-free nut butters. Choose from peanut, almond, pecan, and pistachio, or grab them all - honestly, any of them would be delicious in this recipe.
