Do you like bananas and dark chocolate? Well we have the recipe for you. This recipe is based on a classic banana brownie square recipe. Ours is veganized and with some healthy swaps (minimal sugar, wheat flour swapped out for quinoa flakes, etc). These squares are crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside, with a chocolate-banana aroma. Need we say more?
