NOTES

I like to call these “healthy brownies” because it is primarily banana and requires few other ingredients. Also, I reduced sugar to 1/3 cup. Great for breakfast, dessert, snack. It’s squishy and tastes like blocks of banana, in a good way. I ran out of white chocolate chips so I used semisweet chocolate chips instead, otherwise, the brownies would have looked yellow instead of brown. The little chunks that are visible are chunks of banana, adds to the texture. If the brownies were yellow, the chunks would be a little less obvious. Yellow brownies – that sounds weird….
