Got some bananas about to go bad? Before you make yet another banana bread, try these brownies, which are gluten free, made with a few pantry staples, and a tasty, lighter alternative to boxed brownies!


  • 2 mashed ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • Tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup creamy pb + 2 tbsp for topping
  • Tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/4 cup oat flour
  • (Optional) 1/4-1/2 cup choc chips
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Mash bananas well and whisk together with eggs, maple, vanilla, and peanut butter until your mixture is smooth.
  3. Add baking powder, salt, and oat flour and mix until fully combined and no lumps remain. Add chocolate chips if desired (or you can add nuts, etc).
  4. Pour brownie mixture into a parchment-lined 8×8 pan.
  5. Microwave 2 tbsp of peanut butter for 10 seconds so it’s a bit runny. Dollop on top of brownie mixture and use a knife to swirl.
  6. Bake for 40-50 min for a cakey texture, less if you like them fudgy, but a toothpick some come out relatively clean
  7. Cool for at least 20 min before slicing and enjoy! I love to top these with a little bit of flaky sea salt for some sweet and salty action – highly recommend!
