Posted by Nick Sheridan on

Craving a decadent chocolate treat but short on time and ingredients? Say hello to your new best friend: the 3-Ingredient Brownie Bite! This recipe is about as simple as it gets, requiring just three pantry staples and minimal effort to whip up a batch of heavenly, healthy-ish dessert that will satisfy any chocolate craving.

Gone are the days of complicated baking projects and mountains of dishes. These brownie bites are all about convenience and clean eating, using minimal ingredients that pack a powerful punch of flavour and nourishment.

The Perfect Trio:

The magic of this recipe lies in its simplicity and the quality of its ingredients. Here's the dynamic trio that takes centre stage:

  • Ripe Bananas: The base of our brownie bites, bananas offer natural sweetness, moisture, and a touch of potassium. Choose overripe bananas for the best results, as their mashed texture blends seamlessly and intensifies the sweetness.
  • 99th Monkey Natural Peanut Butter: The star of the show! Choose any variety you like – salted or unsalted. Our commitment to natural, high-quality ingredients shines through in the rich, satisfying taste of each bite.
  • Cacao Powder (or Chocolate Protein Powder): The source of all things chocolatey! Unsweetened cacao powder delivers a deep, dark chocolate flavour without the added sugar. If you're looking for a protein boost, substitute with your favourite chocolate protein powder, ensuring it blends well.

    From Pantry to Plate in Minutes:

    The beauty of this recipe lies in its simplicity. Here's the quick and easy process:
    (To make 6 bites)

    1. Mash it Up: Grab 1 overripe banana and mash it thoroughly with a fork or a potato masher until you have a smooth, creamy consistency.
    2. Nutty Goodness: Mix in 1 tbs of chosen 99th Monkey Nut Butter (Peanut Butter or Almond Butter), ensuring it's well incorporated with the mashed bananas.
    3. Chocolate Magic: Mix in 30 g of cacao powder or chocolate protein powder gradually, until fully integrated. 
    4. Baking Time: Preheat your oven to 180°C. Scoop the batter into a mini muffin tray. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the edges set.
    5. Cooling Down: Let the brownie bites cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

      Customisation is Key:

      While the basic recipe is fantastic on its own, feel free to experiment and add your personal touch! Here are some ideas:

      • Top it Off: Drizzle with melted dark chocolate, or add a dollop of Almond Butter/Peanut Butter for an extra burst of flavour.
      • Fruity Fun: Fold in chopped dried fruit like cranberries or cherries for a sweet and tart contrast.
      • Spice it Up: Add a pinch of cinnamon for a unique flavour profile.
      • Extra Chocolate Bliss: Fold in some chocolate chips into the batter before scooping into the muffin tray for extra chocolatey fun.

        Healthy Indulgence:

        Let's face it, sometimes we crave a sweet treat. These brownie bites offer a healthier alternative to traditional brownies, thanks to the natural sweetness of bananas and the protein and healthy fats from the Nut Butter. You can indulge in guilt-free satisfaction knowing you're nourishing your body with wholesome ingredients.
