Brownie Bite Recipe Steps:

Like I said, these brownie bites only have 5 simple, plant based ingredients. I gathered all my ingredients before getting ready to start making these. The only thing not pictured below are the bananas that you’ll need.

brownie ingredients

First, you’ll mash the 2 bananas in a large mixing bowl. Then add in the other 4 ingredients and mix them together. I used a hand mixer to make sure the batter was smooth enough.

After the batter is mixed, grease a baking pan. I used an 8×8 brownie pan but you can use any size you have on hand. You could also use parchment paper vs greasing the baking pan but I was out haha. I like using parchment paper if I have it on hand, it makes removing these peanut butter brownie bites easier.

After you pour the batter in, smooth out the top. Then I drizzled some peanut butter on top. I always buy organic peanut butter so it’s naturally runny. If you’re looking at peanut butter butter, check the ingredient list to see what’s in it. I always look for just peanut butter and salt on the list.

Then, I took a toothpick and swirled the peanut butter around. It doesn’t take long and it’s pretty easy to do. I do this step because it makes the brownies look so pretty!

Bake for 22-25 minutes at 350F. I like mine pretty fudgy so I only baked for 22 minutes.
