Mambo Nutty Brownie with banana slices


This is my attempt at trying to be healthy this new year by adding a mixture of nuts in my creamy mascarpone icing to glaze my decadent brownie. Cacao + Nuts = Health.

Taking icing to new heights by using homemade mixed nut butter, a combination walnuts, almonds and peanuts blitz in pure coconut oil.

we all know a combination of banana, chocolate and nuts is simply dreamy.

Oh and a slice of banana to seal in the healthy stamp.

So NUTTY!

Cheers to a healthy new year!!
