Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Brownies
Yields: 16 brownies
1 1⁄4 cups (150g) white whole wheat flour or gluten-free flour 1 tsp baking powder
1⁄4 tsp salt
1 1⁄2 tbsp (21g) coconut oil or unsalted butter, melted
3⁄4 cup (195g) mashed banana (about 2 large) 2 tsp vanilla extract
1⁄2 cup (120g) plain nonfat Greek yogurt
3⁄4 tsp vanilla crème stevia
2 tbsp (30mL) nonfat milk
3 tbsp (42g) miniature chocolate chips, divided
1. Preheat the oven to 300°F, and lightly coat a 9”-square pan with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, stir together the coconut oil, mashed banana, and vanilla. Mix in the Greek yogurt, stirring until no large lumps remain. Mix in the stevia and milk. Add in the flour mixture, stirring just until incorporated. Fold in 2 1⁄2 tablespoons of chocolate chips.
3. Spread the batter into the prepared pan, and sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top. Bake at 300°F for 17-20 minutes. Cool completely to room temperature in the pan, and let the brownies rest for an additional 3 hours before slicing for the fudgiest texture.
