WOW, just WOW! These brownies are amazingly delish! They come out soft, gooey, chocolatey, peanutty and just plain addictive! I made the vegan version using 1 large banana which worked out fabulously. I also used a chocolate hazelnut butter in place of pb as thats what I had on hand thus reducing the sugar to 1 ts. Next time Ill leave it out entirely as these were super sweet for my taste. For the chocolate chips I used mini semi sweet chips and threw in a couple of pb chips. Loved it!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this true keeper with us, Lisa Clarice. Ill surely make this again and again and again.
Made and reviewed for the Feburary 2012 Romance and Flour Event in the Photo Forum.
I love using bananas as a binder, the taste and consistency usually turn out superb. But we are big banana lovers. This recipe is great, a good base for other ideas I've worked on. I eventually left out the chocolate chips and went with a strawberry jam swirl = PBJ and banana twist. That was huge hit with the kids. But all in all this recipe is a great way to use up overripe bananas and getting your sweet fix.
I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup as well. I used crunchy peanut butter which worked fine but i did not enjoy the nut-banana taste as it did not blend with the tight flovor of the rice flour at all. Maybe i will make this again using regular or whole wheat flour. Made for PAC fall09
These look so good in the photo that I had to try them. I'm not a huge banana fan but am vegan, so made the vegan version. I substituted wildly, but I think they probably taste fairly close to the original. I used hemp milk instead of soy, 1/2 cup almond butter and 1/2 cup peanut butter because that was what I had. I also used only 1/2 cup sugar and I think it's plenty. I think the texture of rice flour can take some getting used to, but the flavor is just fine. All in all very tasty, and I think they will taste even better tomorrow after they've sat over night. Next time I'll add chopped peanuts. Thanks for a good recipe that I'll make again and experiment with a little more. Update already. I just realized I forgot to say that I also added 1/4 tsp salt. Just gotta have it to make things taste good.
