Breakfast, Dessert

Banana brownie bites

Its a brownie filled with banana, dates and topped with peanut butter and walnuts. Who can resist this combination? This was a huge hit in our home and needless to say we have been indulging for days 😛 well it only lasted 2 days with our heavy consumption 🤷🏻‍♀️ anyway…… 

To remind everyone of our earlier offering – Brownies for breakfast – it is so good for you that you can eat it for breakfast. Today’s offering is a step above – it also includes bananas and peanut butter. So, double the reason to enjoy it for breakfast. 

This recipe has simple, every day ingredients, can be put to bake in under 15 minutes. 

When you bite into them, peanut butter will first coat your mouth along with walnut pieces. Then, slowly, you will taste the banana and date sweetness coupled with the firm texture of a typical brownie. Enjoy it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to make ‘brownie al a mode’ 😉
