White Chocolate Whole-Wheat Banana Brownies

My intake of these soft, chewy Banana Brownies are great for any occasion at the table. Not only will they impress but they are so versatile you can add your own twist on them. Maybe chopped banana's on the top of a spread of Peanut Butter for indulgment? I came across a similar recipe from "Back for Seconds" that was trying to incorporate Banana's in bakes. Well, with the simple ingredients already stored in the Kitchen, I figured why not give it a go.
I read that all purpose flour was included in the recipe however as a lover of switching to healthier ingredients I decided to use whole-wheat flour instead.

To make these brownies you need to have a really good quality vanilla pod or rather seeds like I have used. The reason being it that the flavour is incredibly powering and smells beautiful. It works so well with the Banana mix & white chocolate.

I started by preheating my fan oven to 180 degrees. Using a Pyrex jug I simply added my butter & white chocolate (in chunks) to the microwave with 30 second bursts to mix well. I then added this to my mixer followed by adding the sugar mixing well. Next I added my mashed bananas, egg, vanilla seeds and a pinch of salt to bring out the flavour. Finally, adding my whole wheat flour to combine into a glossy mixture and a heavenly smell!
I added the mixture straight into my square tin and popped into the oven for 15-20 minutes. Once out of the oven I cooled, and then dusted with a little icing sugar. Presto!

1/4 cup butter
100g chocolate
2 medium bananas (mashed)
1/2 cup sugar (granulated)
1 egg
Pinch of salt
Vanilla pod/seeds (teaspoon)
1 cup whole wheat flour (altern) all purpose flour
