Banana Brownies

4 eggs 
½ cup of sugar 
¾ cup of butter (150g) 
100g white chocolate, chopped 
1 pinch of salt 
1 ½ cups of wheat flour 
1 cup of semisweet chocolate chopped 
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ripe bananas

Whisk together the eggs with the sugar until white. In a saucepan, melt the butter and chocolate... I actually did that in the microwave and it was fine. Add to the batter slowly stirring constantly. Add flour, also mixing slowly. Put the chopped chocolate, vanilla extract, salt and cinnamon. Place the batter in the form and place banana slices into the batter. Grease a baking square pan. Bake in preheated oven 180 º C for 20 to 30 minutes - if you want them moist, 20 minutes will do.

These are not very fudgy, compared to the brownies and blondies I usually bake. However, the taste is exquisite: I never thought that chocolate could taste so well mixed with banana and cinnamon. It's a somewhat exotic combination! If you like banana, you're gonna love it. Feel free to add extra ingredients like chunks of chocolate, chocolate cookies, vanilla seeds or coconut flakes.
