Banana Cheesecake Brownies

It has been a couple of weeks since I’ve made a batch of brownies, which just isn’t on. It has also been far too long since I’ve made cheesecake brownies; I was introduced to this recipe back in school and it has stayed with me ever since, it makes the richest and tastiest brownies there is.  I like to double the brownie part of the recipe but keep the cheesecake part as it is, otherwise the brownie : cheesecake ratio is all wrong for me. As luck may have it, I was short on dark chocolate and had a couple of bananas that were very ripe and needed using up. Then it hit me, banana cheesecake brownies! If I used the amount of chocolate the non-banana recipe used it would have overpowered the flavour of the banana, so really it was all just meant to be. These brownies have an extra fudginess (a new word) to them. They really were extra special and dangerously tasty. I limited myself to one little one and then quickly put them in the freezer, out of temptation’s way. These definitely aren’t ‘healthy’ or paleo but perfect for a treat, or to make for loved ones (as in this case).
