Banana Brownies (GF/V/Refined Sugar-Free…almost)

So as you might be guessing from this recipe, I’m having a bit of a hard time breaking up with sugar!  I started trying to cut back a few months ago, and I’ve been finding it pretty hard the last couple of weeks.  Check out my post Breaking Up With Sugar to read why.  I…
