3-Ingredient Fudgy Chocolate Blender Brownies
April 13, 2016
Fudgy brownies or cakey brownies?
A question that has plagued many throughout time and that has sparked lively debates around kitchen tables, potlucks, and bake sales.
I know that opinions are opinions, but as far as I’m concerned I believe that the only way to make a brownie is a fudgy one.
If you want chocolate cake, make a cake.
Just don’t ask me to believe that your airy and light chocolate dessert is a brownie. That’s just chocolate cake, actually it’s a non-tall chocolate cake cut into squares (or a squared too short cake.)
Brownies must be fudgy, dense, rich, and gooey.
Also brownies should be (stupid) easy to make — a one-bowl wonder that requires no mixer and only a bit of patience to wait for them to bake and cool a little before eating.
So what if I tell you that this recipe right here is the simplest brownie recipe there is?
Are you excited?
You really should, because these 3-Ingredient Fudgy Chocolate Blender Brownies are really something.
3 basic ingredients, a blender (or a food processor), and 20 minutes baking time is all you need to make these bad boys happen in your kitchen.
The brownies are so fudgy, moist, thick, and chocolatey you’d never be able to tell they’re made without fat, flour, eggs, or sugar.
They have that intense chocolate punch that I am always looking for in a good brownie, and a first-rate melt-in-your-mouth consistency.
Seriously that good.
Now stop reading this and go make ‘em!

Adapted, just a little, from Arman’s awesome recipe
Note. The bananas need to be frozen for this recipe to work. If you still want to use non-frozen bananas expect a less fudgy consistency.
Makes about 8 brownies
3 medium bananas, frozen
½ cup almond butter (make your own almond butter with this recipe)
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
Preheat the oven the 350°F (175°C) and place a rack in the middle. Grease a small loaf pan and set aside.
Place bananas, almond butter, and cocoa in a blender (or food processor) and pulse until smooth. You might need to stop the blender from time to time to scrape down the sides.
Pour the mixture into the greased pan and bake for about 20 minutes, or until cooked through. Let cool completely on a rack before removing from pan.
Slice into squares and devour!
