Chocolate Banana Brownies

A good brownie, in my opinion, should be fudgy and gooey. A brownie lacking this criteria should not be called so, which is why I can most definitely confirm that these are Brownies, the banana-chocolate combination making them stand out from the delicious crowd. This recipe comes from  Cookie Madness, one of my favourite baking blogs. Although I changed the recipe a fair bit to suit the ingredients on hand, this has become one of my favourite brownie recipes and I highly recommend that you try it, whether you use my adapted recipe or the original.

Chocolate Banana Brownies
(Adapted from this recipe)

180g dark chocolate
6 tablespoons salted butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
one banana, mashed
3/4 cup sifted flour
1 tbsp unsweetened natural cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt (if using unsalted butter, add an extra pinch)
1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 170 degrees C. Line an 8" brownie pan with baking parchment.

Sift together the flour, cocoa, and salt together and set aside.

Combine sugar, eggs, and banana in a separate bowl - stir until combined.

Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat, then stir in the chocolate until melted and smooth. Cool for about 5 minutes.

Add chocolate/butter mixture to sugar egg/banana mixture - stir until combined.

Fold in dry ingredients until just combined.

Fold in the chopped chocolate and walnuts. Bake 35-40 min, or until skewer inserted in middle comes out with fudgy crumbs. Cool completely before cutting.
