XO Banana Brownie


  • 125g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 120g butter
  • 1 large overripe banana, mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 200g caster sugar
  • ¼ tsp of salt
  • 70g GF plain flour
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup Freedom XO Crunch
  • Icing sugar, to dust


Step 1

Preheat your oven to 160°C and line a 24 x 18cm baking dish with greaseproof paper.

Step 2

Place the chocolate and butter in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, then repeat until the chocolate has completely melted.

Step 3

Whisk the mashed banana into the chocolate mixture, then whisk in the eggs.

Step 4

Add the sugar and salt, then sift in the flour and baking powder. Whisk until smooth.

Step 5

Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking dish, then sprinkle the XO Crunch in an even layer over the batter.

Step 6

Place in the centre of your oven and bake for 35-40 minutes. The brownie should be cooked around the edges but still a little soft in the middle.

Step 7

Allow to cool in the baking dish for 15-20 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 8

Transfer to the fridge and chill before cutting to get clean slices. Cut into 12 pieces and dust with icing sugar before serving.
