Overripe bananas usually mean banana bread but this recipe instead twists them into fudgy banana flavored brownies that are vegan, AIP, grain-free, and have no added sweeteners. Yes, it’s the holy grail of dessert yumminess! Whether you just need something that is gluten-free and all natural, or have multiple allergies or intolerances, this IS the recipe you have been looking for!

Notes on ingredients

As I set out to experiment with this recipe I resisted the urge to use any coconut products, since I frequently hear from readers who have trouble with coconut butter or flour. Instead I turned to my new favorite AIP-friendly flour, tiger nut flour. If this isn’t already in your pantry, it’s time to give it a try! There are a couple brands available, but my favorite is this one.

This recipe also calls for carob powder, which is what gives these banana brownies their fudginess while still keeping them AIP-compliant. You can probably find carob powder at your local grocery store, but make sure you check the labels and verify that it is produced in a gluten-free facility.

I tested this recipe with this brand of refined avocado oil, but I think it would work with other compliant liquid oils as well, including melted coconut oil or olive oil.

By the way… My favorite online store for all things for healing diets these days is ShopAIP because I know everything is 100% compliant with the elimination phase of the paleo autoimmune protocol. If you haven’t checked them out yet, you can use the discount code SHOP to get 10% off your first order.
