Healthy Brownies

Often, the problem with losing a few pounds when you have children is that we tend to fall into the rut of "one bite for Johnny one bite for mommy"!- These brownies are for when you want to have that comfort food feeling, but they are a bit healthier. The children seem to gobble them up too.

non stick spray for pan
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 Teaspoon table salt
1/4 cup coco powder
1/4 cup hot water
1 brownish banana, peeled and mashed
1 egg plus one egg white
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350
Spray your 8 x8" pan with non stick spray.
In a medium mixing bowl combine the Flours, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate bowl combine the coco powder and hot water. Whisk to combine. Add the banana, egg, maple syrup, honey and vanilla. Whisk to combine then Pout the dry mixture into the whet mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined. Pour into your pan and bake for 25-30 minutes. Let cool a few minutes before cutting.
