This diabetic guiltless brownie recipe is a real treat! Who says that having a brownie after dinner has to wreck your diet plan. This guiltless brownie recipe has whole-wheat flour, bannanas and cocoa powder in the ingredients. YUM! The Holiday Season brings many food temptations. This is one temptation that we can give in to. :) After eating these guiltless brownies I hope you feel.....well, guiltless!
Measure Ingredient3 tablespoon Unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ cup Vegetable oil
2 Very ripe bananas
½ cup Sugar
2 large Eggs
1 cup Whole-wheat flour
½ cup Chopped nuts
1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine cocoa, oil and bananas in a food processor or blender. Puree until smooth.
2. Combine sugar, eggs, flour and banana mixture in a mixing bowl. Beat until blended, then stir in the nuts.
3. Pour the batter into a lightly oiled 9 x 13 inch baking pan and bake for 15-20 minutes or until done. Toothpick inserted into center should come out clean. (My suggestion - line baking pan with waxed paper and spray with non-stick vegetable spray.) Cut into 2 1/4 inch squares when cool.

Adapted from Quick & Easy Diabetic Menus by Betty Wedman, 1993 Shared but not tested by Elizabeth Rodier, Feb 94 I'd suggest cutting into 48 squares, easier to eat and easier to fit into a meal plan for a diabetic.
