Brownies & Bars

Strawberry and Banana Chocolate Bars

Are you a cakey or gooey fan?

Or should I say bar? Thanks to the lack of sunlight left (i shot these on a very late evening) I had to quickly shoot my strawberry and banana chocolate bar straight from the oven – meaning very little time to cool. Not to mention the main reason behind it being a bar rather than many smaller bars. I always love experimenting with banana when baking but thought I would take it one step further with todays recipe by adding some strawberries as a topping. A combination which I can say I am pretty happy with. The banana and chocolate give the brownie the overall flavour but the strawberries on top adds juice and warmish textures.

Strawberry Bar 3I enjoy my brownies more on the cakey side but if you are a gooey fan feel free to reduce the amount of flour you include.
