Print Recipe


  • 3 bananas (medium ripe)
  • 225 g hazelnut chocolate spread (Nutella or homemade) warmed
  • 90 g unsweetend Dutch cocoa powder
  • a pinch of Fleur de Sel (optional)


  • Preheat the oven the 180°C/350°F, without the fan option, and arrange a baking tray onto the middle shelf.
  • Transfer the bananas in a large bowl and mash them with a fork until reaching a creamy texture. You can also use a blender or a stick blender.
  • Pour slightly warmed chocolate spread into the bowl, followed by the cocoa powder.
  • Mix all the ingredients with a spatula until fully combined.
  • Spray with baking oil an 8-inch square cake pan, pour in the batter, and level the top using a spatula. At this point you cna sprinkle some fleur de sel (sea salt flakes) on top if you like.
  • Bake in the oven (without the fan option) for about 35-40 minutes, then check if the surface looks cooked through, then open the oven and check with a toothpick inserted in the center of the batter if it's done.
  • If the toothpick comes out almost clean, the brownies are ready and you can safely remove the pan from the oven.
  • Allow cooling completely removing from the pan, then cut into 9 squares and serve. For best texture, refrigerate them for at least 30 minutes before serving.



Oven baking tips:
  • Please note that all ovens work differently, so check your brownies after 20 minutes (without opening the door oven), if the surface looks cooked through, then you can safely open the door and check with a toothpick for doneness.
  • If you want to use the oven fan option, your brownies should be done after 17-20 minutes, always check if the surface looks done and cooked through (not liquidy), then check them with a toothpick for doneness.
Storing tips:
Store the baked brownies in a large air-tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. 
You can also freeze them for up to 1 month, let them thaw in the fridge until ready to serve.
