I have wanted to try these brownies for a while now. After filing through many, many recipes to find the perfect one, I decided to try it on my own. There are so many wonderful recipes out there and I definetly drew inspiration from all of them, but I was trying to keep it as healthy as possible without adding any sugar or flour (I mean except for those white chocolate chips sprinkled on top). I am pretty pleased with the turn out considering this was my first try.
These brownies have an airy, pillowy, cake like texture. A very soft yet moist brownie. I was hoping for more of a fudge like brownie. I already have some ideas that will possible help with that. Maybe another egg added and omit the baking powder? That is the fun part of being in the kitchen, experimenting! A lot of the recipes I came across used sugar which I am sure would change the texture. I also came across some with bananas….yum! It will be fun changing it up and seeing what I come up with.
These brownies are great for when that sweet or chocolate craving hits but you don’t want to completely blow your diet, or if you just want to eat healthier in general. I do hope you enjoy!
