  • 42g (7 1/2 tablespoons) cacao powder (or regular cocoa)
  • 48g (1/4 cup) whole brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Wet I:

  • 4 egg whites
  • 240g banana (about 2 medium/large)
  • 4 oz (1/2 cup) plain, Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon stevia extract

Wet II:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.

3. In another large bowl, whisk together the Wet I ingredients.

4. In a medium bowl, heat the Wet II ingredients until smooth.

5. Pour the Wet II mixture into the Wet I mixture and stir until combined.

6. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir until combined.
