If you’re looking for some scrumptious dessert recipes in general, and some healthy gluten-free, vegetarian, or vegan dessert recipes in particular, why not try this 4 Ingredient High Protein Brownie recipe? With bananas, nut butter, and two other yummy mystery ingredients, it’s hard to believe this decadent brownie recipe can actually be really good for you. This easy and delicious dessert calls for two whole cups of bananas. Did you know that one banana alone is very high in vitamin B6, high in dietary fiber, manganese, potassium, and vitamin C? Another important ingredient in this best brownie recipe is smooth peanut butter. As far as the nutritional value of peanut butter goes, one tablespoon of smooth peanut butter contains 94 calories, 4 grams of protein, and is very high in vitamin B6. If you cannot eat peanut butter, or would prefer to use a different kind of nut butter, there are two other options listed in this healthy brownie recipe. You could use almond butter instead of peanut butter. Just one tablespoon of almond butter contains 3.4 grams of protein and is high in manganese and magnesium. You can also use cashew butter. One tablespoon of cashew butter contains 2.8 grams of protein, is very high in vitamin B6 and iron, as well as high in magnesium. To add even more protein to this already high-protein brownie recipe, and a little extra crunch, you could add a half a cup of peanuts, walnuts pieces, almonds, or cashews.

Brownies are the ultimate coffee house, lunch, or restaurant treat. They are a flat, square dessert that are often made in a square or rectangular cooking pan. Brownies are kind of a hybrid species, a combination of cake and soft cookie, but they have a unique character that’s all their own. There’s no mistaking a brownie, or confusing it with any other kind of dessert. Brownies can also have a rich, fudgy texture and flavour, like this healthy brownie recipe does. Brownies are well-known for being easy to eat by hand, without any need of a plate or a fork. Brownies are particularly delectable when they’re served slightly heated, or fresh out of the oven, with ice cream, but if you are vegan, coconut ice cream is just as yummy, if not yummier. You could try almond or cashew ice cream as well – they are delicious too. Where exactly do brownies come from? How long have humans been making brownie recipes? Although we don’t know for certain, one story speaks of a wealthy Chicago socialite named Bertha Palmer in 1893, who requested a special dessert cake from a prominent pastry chef in the city at that time. She needed something smaller than regular cake that could be cut into squares and packed into lunchboxes for the Chicago World’s Columbian Exposition attendees. The chef is said to have created what later was called the “Palmer House Brownie”, a sweet cake square with apricot glaze and walnuts. To this day, the Palmer House Hotel serves this very same brownie.
