You have old, dying ,neglected bananas? You dont know what to do with them? Don’t worry! I am here to salvage you from this situation. I just realised I am sounding like a Superman or may be Superwoman :B Well last week my husband was going for a treacherous Himalayan Trek and demanded (ohk! politely asked) if I could make him some energy bars and something healthy which he can take along and munch on his way and remain energized. My baker mind went in all directions. I of course could have made him my super yummy Amaranth Granola Bars or Oats and Almonds Energy Bars but then I saw an opportunity to make something new which can be put on the blog. I saw some decaying bananas and I had a huge pack of Peanut Butter and there it was – uber delicious Whole Wheat Banana Peanut Butter Brownies!!

I spent 3 hours thinking what to make for him and 20 minutes to get everything ready. These gooey brownies were so decadent loaded with flavour of chocolate and peanut butter that I made a double batch. Saved half for myself and rest went for trek. These brownies used no eggs and still were sinfully indulgent. My jinx is still intact. I still have a reputation for making healthiest brownies on this planet. If you dont know I have on my blog Whole Wheat Oats & Chocolate Brownies,  Gluten Free Chocolate Ragi Brownies ,Vegan Avocado Chocolate Brownies, Vegan Yellow Zucchini Chocolate Brownies and now these Whole wheat Banana Peanut Butter brownies. I hope someday I can make some unhealthy brownies 😉 But if you ever try these indulgent brownies let me know your feedback. Till next time!


1.  Line a 9×9 inch baking pan with some parchment paper and preheat your oven to 180 degree Celsius (Learn more about Oven temperatures and Conversions). 

2. In a bowl add over ripe bananas and mash them well. You can leave them chunky or make them smooth.

2. Add sugar. I have used SOS Organics Khandsari Sugar which is unrefined and makes these brownies more delicious. Whisk well till the sugar is combined with the bananas. 

3.  Add melted butter and vanilla extract. Mix well.


4. Add sifted whole wheat flour to the wet ingredients along with unsweetened cocoa powder.

5. Mix everything well till you get an even textured batter.

6. Pour the brownie batter in the prepared pan and even the top with the help of a spatula.

7. Take small scoops of peanut butter and place them all over the brownie batter.

8. Take a toothpick and randomly make swirls so that the peanut butter spreads all over and mixes with the brownie batter and creates a wonderful pattern.

9. Top it with roasted Salted peanuts and bake them in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.

10. Remove from the pan and let it come to room temperature . Slice it into squares and serve.

Often there is an urge to eat something sweet, chocolaty which simply melts in your mouth. These cravings go berserk if you try to suppress them. And the only solution is to feed them with what they want. One super duper quick recipe is Brazilian Brigadeiros . These are simple chocolate fudge balls which involves minimal cooking and excellent results. Roll them in Chocolate Sprinklers and you get this amazing dessert.

I made this for my mother in law who is fond of chocolates and sweets. She was to do a road trip and I thought to make this for her so that she can enjoy her trip. And when I gave her a box of these she was like “wooowww did you make these they look just like store bought chocolate truffles”. And that made me a happy chirpy soul 🙂 Try them for your kids, specially when they are appearing for their exams. They would love to get pampered this way 😉


1. In a pan melt Butter.
2. Empty a can of Condensed Milk.


3. Also add Cocoa powder and mix well. 


4. Keep cooking chocolate on medium flame until you see it bubbling. Make sure the chocolate doesn’t burn from the bottom so you need to keep stirring. If your chocolate is undercooked you wont be able to roll them into balls  and if its overcooked it wouldn’t taste good. So it has to be perfectly cooked. Draw a line in the centre with the spatula if the line remains  as it is , then its a sign your chocolate is done.

5. Line a plate with Parchment Paper, I have used Oddy Uniwraps Parchment Paper because it doesn’t stick to the food and you need not grease it. Spread the chocolate on the plate and let it refrigerate in fridge for 2 hours.



6. Grease your hands with oil and take a little portion of your chocolate and roll into a ball. If your chocolate is rightly cooked it will form the shape without a problem, if not you need to cook it further.



7. Roll the balls in chocolate sprinklers.

8. You can place them on a muffin cup liner to avoid sticking to the plate. Serve and enjoy the sweetness.

The whole Valentine hype is about hearts and cupids and all that romantic things we used to do ages back while we (me and my erstwhile Boyfriend and present Husband) were dating. Now that we are hitting middle age its time to think healthy and indulge in food which keeps our hearts healthy and not just full of love 😉

This is coming a week after Valentine’s day, but I did make this on Valentine’s day for the love of my life. I couldn’t post it earlier as I was in the middle of so many things, which if I start writing can go on and on. I chose this recipe over others because it was with whole wheat flour, had just three table spoons of oil and I used organic brown sugar which is way healthier. Having said that we totally enjoyed these brownies and they were a treat for my little sunshine. He loved them instantly and raised his thumb saying ” hmmm Mumma Tasty”. And what else do you wish to hear on Valentine’s Day <3


1. Line a 15 cm x 15cm  Square baking sheet with Oddy Uniwrap Parchment Paper for mess free baking. Preheat the oven to 170 degree Celcius.
2.In a bowl add Whole Wheat Flour, organic brown sugar and cocoa powder.




3. Also add baking soda and salt.



4. Grind Oat meal in a grinder and add it to the flour mix.



5. Make a well in the centre.

6. Add whisked plain yogurt, Oil and Vanilla essence.




7. Combine everything with a spatula until moistened. Do not overmix as you do not want to develop gluten.

8. Pour the batter in the lined baking sheet and smoothen the top with a spatula. 



9. Top it with chocolate chips or grated chocolate.



10. Bake it in oven for 45 minutes or until the skewer inserted comes out clean. Remove the parchment paper from the base. You will be amazed how easily it will come out. That’s what I call a mess free baking.

11. Place it on a wire wrack and let it cool down. 

12. Cut into square pieces once it’s totally cooled.
