Banana Brownies (vegan)


Banana Brownies

Preheat oven to 325F.

Line an 8×8 pan or glass baking dish with parchment paper.

In a food processor or in a medium bowl using a hand mixer (beaters, as my mom used to call them..  love you, mom!)

  • 4 medium-large bananas, sliced and mashed well
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (or butter), melted
  • 1/2 c granular sweetener of choice (xylitol, erythritol, coconut sugar, or sugar)  OR substitute 1/3 cup sunflower butter or nut butter of choice PLUS  1/2 tsp pure powdered stevia extract
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup Love My Buns baking mix (If using Love My Buns with the best before date of Sept 26, 2019, November 30,2019, or February 20, 2020, use DOUBLE the amount; different source of coconut flour has very different properties, apparently!)  and combine.

Once combined, working quickly add

  • 3 TBS apple cider vinegar, or lemon/lime juice

Use a rubber spatula to scrape into your prepare pan and spread/flatten.  Batter will be quite thick.

Bake at 325F for 45 minutes.  Refrigerate to cool completely and slice.  And enjoy.
