Banana Bread Brownies

Last week, I wrapped up my post on carrot pineapple banana bread by saying that I really hope Averie Cooks continues the banana bread fest.  As soon as I hit “publish” on that post, I went to her blog and there it was…Banana Bread Brownies!  How is that possible?!  I have never heard of such a recipe but mother-in-law said she has made them before.  I had these brownies on my mind all week.  I couldn’t wait to make them but having to go to work kept getting in the way :).  Finally, I had some free time!  As I have mentioned before, this recipe is similar to all of the previous banana bread recipes.  I love how easy it comes together, throwing everything in one bowl.

With a little taste of the batter, I could tell they would be amazing!  The banana almost takes on a different flavor, if that makes sense.

         

And of course you must have a glaze.  This is a vanilla caramel glaze, the same one used on the apple and banana bundt cake.   I just drizzled it on top of the brownies before they were cut.  I let it sit for a little while so the glaze could harden a bit.  This made it easy to cut without making a mess of the glaze.

One word for these brownies…wow!  I was a little skeptical of banana in brownies.  But I thought this about some previous banana bread recipes and I have been wrong each time…which is a good thing!  I cut up these brownies into bite size pieces, just because I felt like it.  It’s all about portion control.

I can’t believe how much I have been using bananas to bake these past few weeks.  I still can’t bring myself to eat just a banana on its own.  It needs to be mashed up and added to other delicious ingredients, say chocolate.  Then I will eat it!

  1. So glad you enjoyed the brownies – and yes, the banana takes on almost a new flavor but one of the simplest and easiest desserts is a frozen banana dipped in chocolate and anything chocolate + bananas is such a great combo, so I knew it would work in brownies :) Glad you’re a believer, too! Thanks for linking back!
