Today I’ve got another easy, quick and healthy dessert recipe for you brewing right now in the Straight-up Bananas HQ.

I know what you’re thinking. Is she posting yet ANOTHER brownie recipe? My answer to you is ‘yes, God damnit’! I do what I want. And I want brownies in and around my mouth so shush!

This recipe is awesome because it’s not only gluten free, dairy free and sugar free, but also jam-packed with protein and fiber! Perfect for those who like to bulk up on protein (like the mister). This magic ingredient here is that I’m using black-eyed peas to keep the brownies moist since I’ll be using almond and oat flour instead of traditional flour. At this point, I know you think I’ve gone completely bananas, but you’ve got nothing to lose! Go Straight-up Bananas with me and give it a try!


So here’s what you’ll need:

  1. 1 can of organic black-eyed peas
  2. ½ cup of melted organic coconut oil
  3. ½ cup of honey or maple syrup
  4. 2 eggs
  5. 1 tsp vanilla
  6. sea salt
  7. ¼ cup of melted dark chocolate
  8. ½ cup of oat flour
  9. ½ cup of almond flour
  10. ¼ cup of organic cocoa powder
  11. ½ tsp of baking powder 
  12. ½ cup of organic chocolate chips

Here’s how it’s done, son:

First, place the black-eyed peas, coconut oil, honey, eggs, vanilla and sea salt in a blender and blitz until very smooth (No lumps)

Then, sift together the oat flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and almond flour together and mix with the wet mixture until well incorporated.

Then, mix in the melted chocolate.

Place in a baking tray and top with chocolate chips.

Bake for 20-30 minutes (until the mixture has juuuuust set but is still a bit gooey in the centre.

Let cool and then cut up into cubes.

Voila! There you’ve got it! Easy, healthy chocolate chip brownies that are not only good for your body but absolutely delicious!
