A few months ago when I was living in Greece, my friend and I made the most amazing banana based desserts just about every night. We both had a major sweet tooth but weren’t about to indulge on sugary treats that would leave us wanting more and more until we were both addicted to sugar again.
You know how it is when you eat something sweet. Not long after you finish it, you just want more. And then you find yourself wanting more and more. And then you start packing on the pounds…. Well, you get the idea. We weren’t about to let that happen.
Instead, we put my NutriBullet to work and blended banana with something different every night. But we always kept going back to our favorite: chocolate, banana and cayenne pepper. (Some of you are probably thinking, “Um, cayenne?” But if you like things spicy, I’m telling you, it’s good!)
So it got me thinking, what would happen if I baked our little concoction (sans cayenne)?
3 ingredients and 10 minutes later… bam!
I have to say, I’m pretty impressed with how they turned out.
- 3 large ripe bananas
- 1/4 cup raw cacao powder (like this)
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1-2 tbls maple syrup (optional)
- Mash the bananas with your fork and stir in the remaining ingredients.
- Bake at 350 for approximately 8 minutes. I used a loaf sized pan.

Is quitting sugar something you struggle with too?
Does reading this post and looking at pictures of brownies make you want to go to the nearest convenience store for some candy or ice cream?
Do you have to have a dessert every single day?
Or do you have a hard time focusing on conversation when you know there’s something sweet nearby?
If you’re struggling to lose weight or with bad breakouts, sugar is likely the evil culprit. I was addicted to sugar for years and had no idea. If I was able to overcome it, you can too.
I created the “Sayonara Sugar!” Session just for you.
