Let's start the year as we mean to go on, shall we?
Apologies to anyone who might be trying to quit the habit as a New Year's resolution!
Blackening bananas often tend to end up in a Banana Muffin mixture but this recipe is an indulgent way to use them up. The bananas keep the brownie really soft and gooey in the middle, and I like to think that it also makes these a bit healthier than they might actually look. After all, it must count towards some of your 5-a-day, right?
I made the mistake of not taking the photo as soon as they were out of the oven, so half of them are gone!
