You will also need a brownie tin, lined with foil.

Method:

1) Preheat the oven to 180 degrees c,

2) Melt the coconut oil, nut butter and honey in a microwave (or over a Bain-marie) .

3) Take your peeled banana and place on a large flat plate and begin mashing with a fork,

5) At this point it always looks like there’s no way it will ever all fit in! That’s normal, use the back of a metal spoon and start to smooth it down and ‘pack it in’ so that it’s level,

When you’ve finished flattening it, it should look something like this

6) Put in your preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown

allow to cool completely before you cut into squares (otherwise it will just fall apart).

Once cold store in an air tight container, preferably in the fridge- that way it will last longer. x
