Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is going amazing! I can't believe that we only have 18 more days until Christmas! I got to put my tree up over the weekend (while listening to country Christmas songs,) so it's definitely beginning to look like Christmas!!
These banana flour peppermint bark brownies will definitely have you feeling the holiday spirit! The brownies have the perfect chewy and fudgy texture, along with the most perfect crust. The peppermint bark pieces are not only on top of the brownies, they are actually part of the brownie batter as well! I melted the peppermint bark & dark chocolate chips and mixed it into the batter. If you absolutely LOVE chocolate and mint, you will fall in love with this recipe!
Onto the recipe!
Banana Flour Peppermint Bark Brownies
- 1 cup WEDO banana flour
- 1/4 cup cacao powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup organic cane sugar (coconut sugar would work too)
- 1 egg
- 1 pinch of sea salt
- 1/3 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy)
- 1/2 cup grass-fed butter, melted (you can use shortening or coconut oil as a dairy-free sub)
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life Brand)
- 1/2 cup chopped peppermint bark
- peppermint bark pieces, to top brownies
Melt chocolate chips and peppermint bark together. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together banana flour, cacao powder, cane sugar, and sea salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, milk, and melted butter. Whisk in melted chocolate. Add wet ingredients to dry and whisk until thoroughly combined.
Pour brownie batter into baking pan and bake for about 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Top brownies with peppermint bark pieces, and bake again for about 2 minutes, or until chocolate is melted. Let cool for at least an hour, then slice into squares and enjoy!
