5-Ingredient Peanut Butter Banana Brownies Recipe

Amazing flourless banana brownies made with whole foods. Great for everyday, this egg-free vegan brownie recipe is delicious. 


– 4 ripe bananas mashed (about 1.5 cups) – 1 cup unsweetened creamy peanut butter – 2 to 3 Tbsp pure maple syrup optional – ½ cup cocoa powder – ¼ tsp sea salt – ¼ cup chocolate chips optional

Preheat the oven to 350°F and line an 8" x 8" square pan with parchment. Mash the bananas in a large bowl until creamy (you can leave them chunky if you don't mind). 

Step 1


Add the remaining ingredients—peanut butter, pure maple syrup, cocoa powder, and sea salt—to the mixing bowl and stir until a thick brownie batter forms. 

Step 2

If adding chocolate chips, mix them into the brownie batter. Pour batter into pan. Spread the batter evenly and top with chocolate chips if desired. 

Step 3

Bake brownies until set, 20–25 minutes. Let brownies cool to room temperature before slicing and serving. You can sprinkle flaky sea salt or powdered sugar on them. 

Step 4

For fun, serve them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream (preferably sugar-free dairy-free).
