A short love story of these brownies
Well, let me tell you some interesting facts about how these brownies came to life. I had some overripe bananas last week and obviously my first intention was to make a banana bread. It was a weekend and I was about to bake the banana bread but then someone stopped me.
Who stopped me from baking banana bread? Who doesn’t like banana bread in my house?
I think you might have already guessed the name of the person who came between me and my banana bread. Yes, it was Little A.
She said: “Mommy, why are you making bread. I don’t like banana bread. Can you bake a chocolate cake?”
Me: No, I have to use up some overripe bananas so I will make bread.
Little A: “Please Mommy! But can you make brownies then?”
I just love anything chocolate so couldn’t say no to her.
Me: “Should I really make some brownies?”
Little A: “Yeah, you should because I like brownies. Yum yum, they are D-LICIOUS.”
Me: Okay, then let’s make some brownies."
And that’s how these brownies were invented. 🙂

So the brownies were something like “what happens when a banana bread meets chocolate cake”.
I can tell in the case of these brownies that I didn’t get what I expected but I got much more than that. I got something even better. 🙂

These brownies have simple ingredients and I knew they would be a winner at home. For sweetening, I used bananas and brown sugar just to be sure that it hits the perfect sweet spots.
These Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies are Foolproof
For these brownies, I opted for wheat flour but you can also use white flour, fine oatmeal or may be buckwheat or any other gluten-free flour to make them gluten-free.
I have made these brownies so many times with little variations each time, so I can tell that the above-mentioned approach works fine. You can even call them foolproof brownies because nothing can go wrong with these.
Yogurt and coffee shine the flavors of these brownies
For these brownies, I used fat-free greek yogurt and some freshly brewed coffee which boosted the chocolate intensity level. I used cocoa powder for that chocolatey flavor.

Peanut butter steals the show
At the end, I added peanut butter and that made these brownies even more divine. Mmmm — banana, peanut butter and chocolate. Isn’t it a match made in heaven? These brownies are a perfect marriage of these three awesome ingredients.
You can also replace Peanut Butter with the same amount of Nutella. That will work just as good. 🙂
