Banana Nutella Blondies

We've teamed up with @woodhillkitchen over on Instagram to bring you some delicious recipes you can whip up at home and some fantastic ideas on using up your leftovers... Like this delicious tasty treat using up those last banana's in the bowl, and part of your 5 a day!

Top Tip before you start The secret to squidgy blondie/brownies is not to over mix. Always whisk by hand. Ingredients

  • 250g butter

  • 250g light brown sugar

  • 2-3 overly ripe, mashed bananas

  • 2 eggs

  • 1tsp baking soda

  • 1/2tsp salt

  • 300g flour

  • 2-300g chocolate chunks

  • 2-3 heaped tablespoons of @nutella

  • handful of chopped hazelnuts

Method Melt 250g butter. Whisk in 250g light brown sugar. Add 2-3 overly ripe, mashed bananas. Add 2 eggs. Add 1tsp baking soda and 1/2tsp salt. Whisk until combined. Add 300g flour and whisk until just combine. Add about 2-300g chocolate chunks - I used Cadbury Dairy Milk Whole Nut to keep with the theme. Spoon mix into a brownie tin lined with baking paper. Melt 2-3 heaped tablespoons of Nutella and drizzle over the top. Sprinkle over a handful of chopped hazelnuts and bake at 180c for 25-30 mins. Check cooked through (a skewer should come out clean) and leave to cool in the tin before slicing. Meet Rosa

@woodhillkitchen began in June 2020 after deciding I could not take one more picture of my food to sit on my camera roll unseen by the world. Be it home cooked or eating out, there’s nothing I find more satisfying than good food and getting the perfect pic! Despite still working through lockdown, quieter weekends gave me the chance to experiment with new recipes and spend a little more time in the @woodhillkitchen. Proving vegetables don’t need to be boring and that cake is ALWAYS a good idea is my goal and I hope to encourage people to love their leftovers, shop small and support local businesses!
