No-Bake Banana Walnut Brownies 1Brownies on the brain.

You probably couldn’t tell by my blog, Instagram account, or Facebook page, but rarely a day goes by when I don’t think about chocolate. I was being facetious. I’m sure you could tell.

And while that chocolate could take the form of a cookie, ice cream, or freezer fudge, usually it takes the form of a brownie. ‘Cause I’m a brownie-lover, friends.

Yep, I could eat brownies all day long. Brownies for breakfast (I actually do this regularly), for a snack, for dessert. And then in between, too.

My brownies don’t always have to be chocolate, though. Every now and again I make them with carob powder instead of cocoa. Just to mix things up, and also because my hubby loves carob things.

Plus, if you didn’t know, carob is actually pretty healthy. Yep! Carob not only contains calcium, it also has antioxidants, and fiber. And even better, it’s caffeine-free and doesn’t have any oxalates! So if you’ve given up chocolate because you can’t handle caffeine, you can make these brownies with carob instead.

Whether you use cocoa powder or carob for these No-Bake Banana Walnut Brownies, you’ll love them. And with bananas and walnuts, they’re the perfect food for breakfast! I’ve even added in a little protein boost with some grass-fed, kosher gelatin

Just FYI, if you do go the carob route, it doesn’t work the best for the frosting. So if you can’t handle any caffeine or chocolate, I’d leave the frosting off. The brownies will still taste delicious!
