Skinny Mini Banana Brownie Muffins {GF}

IMG_9219 IMG_9269IMG_9259These mini chocolate bombs taste like a dark rich brownie, but eat like a muffin- ya got me?

The dark rich chocolate flavour is definitly satisfactory for every brownie fan but the dense crumby interior is what makes them muffin territory. I had every intention of creating a healthy two- bite brownie today. But the baking gods had other plans. The banana that was initially used as a natural sweetener, gave the brownies the most delightful banana chocolate muffin taste that cant be ignored.

I don’t know about you but I have tried every healthy brownie in the book and the texture in some of these ‘black bean’ brownies is worrisome. I promise these barely taste like they fit in the nutritious category, but their ingredients list speaks for itself.IMG_9233IMG_9275IMG_9235
