Guiltless Brownies

24 servings

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.

1/24 recipe fits within Am. Diabetes Assoc. guideline of 1 tsp sugar per serving.
