Gluten-Free & Vegan Banana Chocolate Brownies

These Gluten-free & Vegan Banana Brownies are so decadent and deliciously mouth dense and fudgy. As far as brownies go, these are by far my favorite. Every once in a while I need a little something sweet to satisfy my sweet tooth but I usually try to stay away from too many sweets. I made these brownies with natural sugars in mind as a healthier alternative to having a high-sugar treat. They turned out great! I would have never expected these to be refined sugar free.

Dress them up with icing to make for a delicious dessert. Or, without icing, these are packed with vitamins low in sugar enough to eat for breakfast on-the-go. Either way, they are super healthy and delicious. I made these with my cherry coconut whipped cream and were awesome!

Gluten-free often makes desserts dry and brittle but this version is a lot more moist than the standard gluten-free brownie recipe. Bananas are the key. Find some browning or rotting bananas, it will bring a chewy, moistness without the banana aftertaste.
