Banana Brownies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Giggling

These came from the Golden Book of Chocolate, published by apple. Unlike other brownie recipes these aren't extremely sweet, but still have a strong flavour of banana and cocoa. They have a good consistency, not too heavy so are very easy to snack on. I make them in bite-sized muffin cases because they're great for packed lunches.

This was fabulous! It had the texture of banana cake but still tasted like a brownies. I skipped the nuts and changed it to regular chocolate and used dark chocolate cocoa powder because that is what I had. I was really surprised that these didn't need salt but they still turned out great.
