• 2 eggs
  • 2 bananas
  • 160 grams (5.6 ounces) butter
  • 150 grams (5.3 ounces) sugar
  • 160 grams (5.6 ounces) flour
  • 50 grams (1.8 ounces) cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 100 grams (3.5 ounces) bitter chocolate


  • Baking Tin (22*22cm, 8.65*8.65 inches)

    Make sure to grease it well with butter or line it with baking paper to prevent the brownies from sticking.

  • Mixing Bowls

    You'll need at least two – one for the wet ingredients and one for the dry. Glass or stainless steel works best for easy cleaning.

  • Fork or Potato Masher

    Perfect for mashing the bananas into a smooth consistency.

  • Whisk or Electric Mixer

    Use this to combine your wet ingredients thoroughly. An electric mixer will save you time and energy.

  • Sifter

    Ensure your brownie mix is free from lumps by sifting your dry ingredients.

  • Rubber Spatula

    Great for folding in chocolate and scraping down the sides of your mixing bowl.


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 320°F (160°C). Make sure your oven is fully preheated before you start baking for the best results.

Step 2

Grease a 22 x 22 cm (8.65 x 8.65 inch) baking tin with butter or cover it with baking paper. Butter helps prevent sticking and gives a lovely crust!

Step 3

Melt the butter and let it cool slightly. Be careful not to overheat the butter or it might cook the eggs later.

Step 4

Peel the bananas and mash them with a fork until smooth. Ripe bananas work best as they mash more easily and add more sweetness.

Step 5

Mix the mashed bananas with the cooled butter, sugar, and eggs until well combined. Ensure the butter is not hot, or it could curdle the eggs.

Step 6

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder. Sift this mixture over the banana mixture and mix until smooth. Sifting helps to remove any lumps and makes the batter lighter.

Step 7

Chop the chocolate into small pieces and fold them into the batter. Bigger chunks give a nice texture, but small ones melt more evenly.

Step 8

Pour the batter into the prepared baking tin and spread it out evenly. A spatula or back of the spoon can help to flatten the surface.

Step 9

Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center; it should come out with a few moist crumbs. Avoid overbaking to keep your brownies fudgy.


Imagine biting into these warm, gooey banana brownies fresh out of the oven. For an epic treat, serve them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream 🍨 and a drizzle of chocolate syrup. Hosting a party? Cut them into bite-sized squares and arrange them on a platter with fresh berries 🍓 for a burst of color and flavor. If you're aiming for a more sophisticated dessert, lightly dust the brownies with powdered sugar before serving. For added decadence, throw in some chopped nuts or sprinkle a pinch of sea salt over the top before baking. Whether it’s for a cozy night in or a fancy dinner, these brownies will surely impress!


Cooking for friends with dietary preferences? Making these brownies gluten-free and vegan-friendly is totally doable!
Gluten-Free Variation 🌾: Replace the all-purpose flour with a gluten-free baking blend. Make sure it contains xanthan gum to help the brownies hold together.
Vegan Variation 🌱: Swap the eggs with flax eggs (2 tablespoons flaxseed meal mixed with 5 tablespoons water) and use a vegan butter substitute instead of regular butter. Choose dark chocolate that’s dairy-free to keep it vegan all the way!
These variations ensure everyone can enjoy this scrumptious dessert.


  • What can I use if I don’t have a sifter?

    You can use a fine-mesh strainer as an alternative to sift your dry ingredients.

  • Can I use frozen bananas?

    Yes, just make sure they are fully thawed and excess moisture is drained before mashing.

  • How do I know when my brownies are done?

    Insert a toothpick into the center; if it comes out with a few moist crumbs (but not wet batter), your brownies are ready.

  • Can I add other ingredients to the batter?

    Absolutely! Try adding nuts, dried fruit or even marshmallows for a fun twist.

  • How do I store leftover brownies?

    Store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

  • What's the best way to reheat brownies?

    Warm them in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds, or cover with foil and heat in a preheated oven at 300°F (150°C) for about 10 minutes.
