It’s two weeks late.. but it’s here. Flourless banana brownies.
I really wish I was working already. I really hadn’t expected to wait this long to get a job :/ Thing is, I have to write a conversion exam. My degree is recognized in Zimbabwe and I should have been able to come back and start working as soon as my paperwork went through. Instead, I have to wait two months to write a conversion exam. An exam I know nothing about, no format, no past year papers, nothing.
However, I’m still finding time to bake in between my study marathons. And when I’m tired and stressed these Brownies are the perfect pick-me-up. I have them in my study breaks with a tall glass of milk or some hot tea if it’s cold (it’s always cold).
I used bananas and yoghurt to replace most of the sugar and fat that makes up a regular brownie and coconut flour to replace regular flour. It may look like a lot of liquid ingredients for only a quarter cup of flour but coconut flour absorbs a lot of moisture so don’t worry about all the liquid.
These brownies are soft and wet, the texture is nothing like a regular brownie but they taste great. Sweet and full of chocolate flavour. The best thing is that it’s a one bowl recipe which means less clean up.
I’ve been getting requests to do video recipes so I’m definitely going to getting that started up soon. I’ve been wanting to do youtube recipes for a while now so I’m pretty excited to see that happen. Follow my facebook page for updates about the channel.
