Christmas Tree Vegan Brownie

Still wondering what to cook for Christmas Eve!? Those pretty Christmas Tree brownies should do the trick. Not only because of their cute shape but because they are absolutely delicious! I’m not a huge fan of bananas but I wanted to test them as an egg substitute. And against all odds, I’m really happy with the taste and the consistency!

If you have kids, I guess it could be a lot of fun to decorate the brownie triangles with them. You can do so with dried fruits, nuts, fresh fruits and even green peas for the Christmas balls (don’t worry you don’t have to eat them!).
