Four Ingredient Brownies

These four-ingredient brownies are made with only four whole ingredients and come together perfectly. They are moist and completely satisfy the sweet tooth. When you compare the nutrient breakdown to standard brownies, this recipe is higher in protein, fibre and antioxidants and lower in sugar and saturated fats. The sweetness in these brownies comes from over-ripe bananas and a splash of pure maple syrup (less processed and sweeter than white sugar). 



  • 3 overripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup natural almond butter OR natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • Optional: 1/4 cup chocolate chips added in, chocolate icing or melted chocolate chips on top


  1. Mash three ripe bananas in a bowl and add one cup of almond butter (or peanut butter), half a cup of cocoa powder, a quarter cup of maple syrup and a quarter cup of chocolate chips. Mix until smooth.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a lined baking tray and bake at 350F for 25 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!

Optional: Add a thin layer of chocolate icing or melted chocolate chips on top for a sweet finish.
