Gluten-Free Banana Coconut Brownie Bites

Gluten-Free Banana Coconut Brownie Bites

These brownie bites are chewy, moist, and have a nice chocolate banana flavour. Best of all they’re both gluten-free and toddler approved! Coconut Flour can be a tricky ingredient to bake with.. It’s definitely not a straightforward gluten-free substitution for flour. High in fibre, and low on the glycemic index coconut flour is a great flour alternative. But I suggest using a recipe like this one that specifically calls for coconut flour so that the other ingredient ratios are adjusted accordingly. 

Ingredients 

  • 3 ripe Bananas
  • 2 Tbsp Crunchy Peanut Butter
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract 
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Espresso Powder
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa Powder 
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar or Maple Syrup 
  • 1/4 cup Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Flour

Nice and moist as promised!

Directions 

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Line baking pan with parchment paper and grease. I used a 9 inch loaf pan. 
  3. Mash bananas. Add Peanut Butter, Eggs, and Vanilla and whisk well.
  4. Add Espresso Powder, Cocoa Powder, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, Salt and mix.
  5. Add Sugar or Maple and Chocolate Chips and mix.
  6. Finally add the Coconut Flour and mix until well combined. 
  7. Bake for 35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean from the center. 
  8. After it cooled I cut it into Brownie Bites that my daughter loved. 

Enjoy!

    Thanks Sofia I will try these after I am off low fadmap diet. Ripe bananas are high fadmap and not so ripe bananas in small portions are low fadmap! Green bell peppers are high fadmap and red ones are low fadmap. I think the diet is healing but the up coming trip might spoil everything.
