Homemade Marinara Dipping in bowl

Homemade Marinara Dipping SauceA lot of store-bought and restaurant marinara dipping sauces have an unusual amount of extra ingredients and high levels of sugar. Make your own at home and control what you put in it. I wanted some marinara sauce today but I only diced tomatoes at the ready. I used a stevia sugar mix in place of the sugar. It did just the trick!

 

Avocado Banana Chocolate Brownies on plate

Avocado Banana Chocolate BrowniesI actually call these my Skinny Mini Brownies, but I wanted to be very clear in the title what's in them. It's truly just one avocado, one banana, and a box of chocolate brownie mix. This process knocks out the need to use butters and oils, and makes the brownies so fudgy, you will not need icing at all. Here, I've used an organic double chocolate brownie mix I got on sale for 60 cents. You could also use 2 avocados, omitting the banana, and they turn out fabulously, as well!
