Chocolate Financier:

1 1/2 cups almond flour

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

10 egg whites

1 1/4 cups butter; browned

1 1/2 cups dark chocolate; chopped

Caramelized Bananas:

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup water

3/4 cup cream

2 bananas; cut into batons


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Sift the almond flour, flour and powdered sugar into a mixing bowl. Add egg whites and mix on low speed for 1 minute. Add the browned butter slowly and mix well. Fold in the chocolate by hand using a rubber spatula. Portion into desired sizes and bake until lightly browned.
  2. Caramelized Bananas: Cook sugar and water over high heat until well caramelized. Turn off the heat and add cream. Stir until well mixed; it should be boiling. Add bananas and toss lightly in syrup. Strain and reserve liquid. Place bananas around financier and finish with reserved liquid.
