Banana Peanut Butter and Chocolate Brownies (Vegan & Gluten Free)

I’m spending a relaxing Sunday watching Netflix after a lovely birthday yesterday filled with fun, food and friends. I say relaxing but I always like to at least do a little bit of work at the same time ie planning, recipe writing, catching up on social media or research. So here I am writing up the recipe for my delicious banana & peanut butter brownies.



The combination of banana, chocolate & peanut butter is one of my favourites. A classic right? These moist and rich brownies are just perfect in my opinion, not too heavy or too sweet, but just right. Plus they are easy to make, happy days. I really hope you like them guys.

    Wow, these look fabulous! I love peanut butter and chocolate brownies! I bet they would even taste fantastic if you crumble up a brownie on top of a banana smoothie bowl or a banana split!

    Hi, wow was I excited to get to your recipe – but I live in France and we don’t have things like coconut sugar or vegan butter off the shelves – would it be possible to make a blog about alternatives that are easily attainable everywhere? Perhaps you already have done that blog?
    Sorry to be such a pain but I am trying to change from veggie to vegan and have 4 teenagers in the house so these brownies would be gobbled up in next to no time – can’t be having expensive, exclusive shopping sprees – Namaste
    Thanks for being here notheless 🙂

      Hi Cat
      I totally understand and good point. I’ll try and include accessible alternatives.
      In terms of sugars, you can swap with whatever you have available.
      Love, Niki xx
