These Banana Bread Brownies are one of the most underrated desserts. They are absolutely delicious, made with all gluten-free ingredients and they’re the ultimate dessert for the brownie and banana bread lovers.

  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 22 mins
  • Total Time: 30 mins

Yield: 9 brownies 1x


  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed (about 2/3 cup)
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup creamy nut or seed butter (peanut butter, almond butter, tahini, etc.)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • Sea salt
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line/grease 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper
  2. In a large bowl, mix together bananas, eggs, syrup, sugar, nut butter and vanilla extract until smooth
  3. Mix in flour, salt and cacao powder until evenly combined
  4. Fold in dark chocolate chips then add batter to baking dish and evenly spread across baking dish
  5. Add extra chocolate chips on top at this time!
  6. Bake in oven for 22-25 minutes or until the top isn’t jiggly (these will have an under-baked type center from banana!)
  7. Allow the brownies to cool for a few minutes then slice and enjoy (I like to lift up the parchment paper sleeves to remove the brownies from dish and cut on a cutting board)


*Store in airtight container for 3-5 days, fridge for 1 week or freezer for 2 months
