  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips plus more for topping


  • Preheat oven to 350 F and line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl add mashed bananas, almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla. Stir the liquid mixture until thoroughly combined.
  • Next, add in baking powder, baking soda, salt and stir. The brownie batter should be smooth and silky. Then, fold in the dark chocolate chips.
