Cheeky Monkey Brownies
Chocolate banana brownies. A perfect treat, for all ages.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cooking Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 9 brownies
- 100 g Sweet Freedom Chocolate Sauce Banana flavoured
- 175 g butter unsalted
- 3 medium eggs
- 250 g light brown sugar
- 75 g plain flour
- 1 tbsp honey optional
Preheat the oven to 180°c and line a 9” square tin with baking parchment.
In a saucepan, melt the butter then add in the chocolate sauce, stirring until the mixture is a fully combined to form an even glossier chocolate sauce. Leave to cool.
Meanwhile, beat together your eggs and sugar in a stand mixer (a hand-held mixers or plain old whisk will work too!) for 2-3 minutes, until light and airy.
While still beating the eggs and sugar, slowly pour in your cooled, buttery-chocolate mixture.
Turn off your mixer, and fold in your flour until just incorporated. Here is where you would also add in the tablespoon of honey, if you wish. I find it helps to make the brownies extra gooey without making them super sweet. You could even use golden syrup!
Pour the batter into your lined tin, and bake on the middle shelf for 30 minutes.
Don’t worry if the brownies puff up a bit, that’s the egg; so long as they’re still a bit wobbly in the middle, they’ll sink down into their deliciously, gooey state.
Leave to fully cool before cutting into 9 squares. Serve with vanilla ice cream or, if you fancy that banoffee flavour, go all out and have caramel ice cream instead!
