Bananapple Brownies

Apples and bananas.

We love ’em straight up.

We love ’em in a good smoothie.

We put down so many apples and bananas around here that we’ll probably convince our new kittens to love them too.

W with baby kittens

But in brownies?

Seriously, these babies are for real.

Better than any bean brownies.

One way to recover and refuel post-exercise.

Or a nice accompaniment to your coffee and pre-fuel before a good hard run.

Have I convinced you yet?

Try this genuinely healthy and unique batch of brownies.

First, find your blender ’cause you’ll need it.

And feel free to substitute vegan yogurt or gluten-free flour.

They’ll be fudgy and goooood no matter your fancy.

Bananapple Brownies

  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 small apple, cored but peel intact
  • 3 T coconut oil
  • 4 T yogurt
  • 1 T orange liqueur (weird, but just go with it)
  • 1 T coffee liqueur (or vanilla)
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/2 c flour
  • 1/4 c cocoa
  • 1/4 c crystallized ginger
  • 1/2 c dark chocolate chips

In a blender blend together all ingredients, except ginger and chocolate chips.

Add ginger and blend so that the ginger is not quite so chunky.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Spread evenly into a greased 8×8 inch pan and bake for 25 minutes at 300.

Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes.
