These vegan banana brownies are fudgy, moist, and so delicious! Put your overripe bananas to good use with this chocolaty dessert. It’s made with healthy, oil-free, dairy-free, and egg-free ingredients.


  • 1 cup mashed banana (~3 bananas)
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup nut butter (almond or peanut)
  • 1/4 cup plant-based milk
  • 12 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 flax eggs (2 tbsp ground flaxseed + 6 tbsp water)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup vegan chocolate chips


  1. Prepare oven: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Create the flax eggs: Combine 2 tbsp ground flaxseed + 6 tbsp water in a bowl. Mix together and set aside to thicken.
  3. Combine wet ingredients: Add mashed banana, coconut sugar, nut butter, plant-based milk, vanilla extract, and flax eggs to a large bowl. Whisk to combine.
  4. Add dry ingredients: Add the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking power, and salt. Do not over-mix the batter; mix it just until the ingredients come together. Then, fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Bake: Line an 8×8-inch baking dish with parchment paper or spray with cooking oil. Spread brownie batter across the pan. If desired, sprinkle extra chocolate chips on top. Bake for 35-40 minutes.
  6. Cool: Remove brownies from the oven and let them cool inside the pan. After, slice and enjoy!


  • Do not over-mix the batter. Over-mixing develops the gluten (in the flour) and creates tough brownies.
  • Allow the brownies to cool in the pan before slicing.
