Banana Brownies ~ No Fat!

16- Banana BrowniesPin


Last week, I was reading this status of Sister Yasmin Mogahed. It is pretty long and deep, so if you have the time, do read through it. We all have our own illusions of love. A love that is satisfying, a love that helps us fly, a love that helps us shed our inhibitions, a love that will make us feel whole… But I always wonder whether that type of love actually exists in this world. As human beings, we live in a world full of expectation. As a mother, she shouts at her child when he or she errs but as a child, he or she thinks that the mother hates them. A sister may hit off a burning candle from her brother’s hand due to worry of burning his hand while he may think that she is spoiling his fun. A husband may not even tell his wife that he enjoyed her food but may go and tell his friends big praises about her food. Everybody sees love and professes love different, and we will interpret it from our perspective. I have always wished D would be a bit open when I was a child but now that I am grown up, I understand that he is open enough compared to so many other fathers who wouldn’t even speak properly to their daughter. I sometimes feel frustrated how HD can go really silent at times, but then I also get reminded that he never holds me away from doing things that I love to do, in fact he never even bothers if I don’t ask him permission to go anywhere! Have you heard of a husband who wouldn’t call if I take time to reach back home? πŸ™‚ There is always a rise near to that fall in this worldly love. It is never complete – the day you think it is complete, there are all chances of it failing you. The only love that never fails and never fluctuates is that belongs and comes from Him. He gives us enough even we are ungrateful to Him, Alhamdulillah…


At times, the mind is very restless but then that is when two things come to play for me – chocolate and bananas! πŸ˜€ Banana is such a mood food, I personally feel good after eating one. I have already posted a chocolate banana bread on the blog and today’s is a brownie with banana – where banana literally becomes the “fat” used. Yes, there is not even a drop of butter in this – just like this one – and still, it is so fudgy and melt in the mouth! I totally loved how these brownies turned out to be. As soon as I saw this recipeΒ here, I had to somehow make it. Make it and eat up what you can, and then keep some in the fridge, make it slightly warm and enjoy it again! πŸ™‚
