buckwheat brown butter banana brownies, lots of words beginning with the letter B make 1 amazing little brownie. they are so fudgy and yummy. I had loads of left over ripe bananas and i was going to make banana bread but decided i make way to much banana bread (i may have a banana bread addiction) so i made these instead and now I’m in love with them. not only are they so easy to make but really tasty. I usually use 1 cup of brown sugar in them but this time I used half a cup and 1/3 cup coconut flower nectar syrup or maple syrup I’m glad I did as it made them even more fudgy and a little healthier.
I used buckwheat flour as it was the first flour I came across in the cupboard, plus I think it goes really well with chocolate I had planned to use spelt flour.
I added nuts and chocolate chips and cacao nibs into the batter I used brazil nuts and walnuts. I love brownies I just don’t seem to make them very often I don’t know why, I will definitely be making them all the time now as I always get given black bananas to use up from my family so its great to have another banana recipe up my sleeve.
