This beautiful baby boy has finally joined our little family and has already changed my life forever!
I love the quote from Winnie-the-Pooh that ““sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.” From the moment I saw the plus on my pregnancy test I have loved my baby more than I could have imagined but that moment, here below, was the moment where I felt my heart grew 100 times bigger to fit all the feelings I had when I saw and held my little man for the first time. So many emotions and so much fulfilment that suddenly came over me, like something was always missing and I just didn’t know it and now it was here and it was so overwhelming in the most beautiful way. I’m sure any momma who gave birth knows what I’m talking about hehe. I feel so blessed with this mini munchkin and I spend hours a day kissing his little cheeks, his tiny feet and just staring at him till my neck hurts – and trust me you have a lot of hours in a day when you barely get any sleep. All worth it though!
If you’re a reader of this blog, you know I’ve had the pregnancy diabetes and had to be careful with every carb that I ate. I have been dreaming of brownies for the past 3 months so now we’re back home, I might be making up for the amount of chocolate I missed!! Oops! Good news for you, I’m sharing my recipe for a delicious and healthy banana brownie that you will be not able get enough of. It’s nice and soft and I just ate a whole tray of it.
GLUTEN-FREE & SUGAR-FREE BANANA BROWNIE
Ingredients (for a small square tray – for a big tray double the ingredients)
2 overripe bananas
3 tbsp smooth organic peanut butter
2 tbsp cocoa powder
100 g coconut flour
15 g stevia (equivalent of 150 g sugar)
100 g chocolate chips or chocolate pieces (I used stevia sweetened chocolate)
That’s how you make it:
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Mix all ingredients except for chocolate chips in a blender. Add chocolate chips. Grease the tray with a baking spray or line it with a baking paper. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes. Let cool off. If you’re feeling a little naughty you can melt some extra chocolate and cover the brownie with it.
