Is there anything more comforting that an ooey, gooey, chocolatey brownie? Brownies in my book are the ultimate comfort food. These Gluten-free Vegan Healthy Banana Brownies are so decadently dense and fudgy. The best part about them is that they are made with all-natural sugars. The bananas are the secret to these brownies. They keep them fudgy while lightly sweetening them.

Why make these healthy banana brownies?

Gluten-free often makes desserts dry and brittle but this version is a lot more moist than the standard gluten-free brownie recipe. Bananas are the key.
