Chocolate Banana Bread Brownies

Print Friendly

Some weeks we have so many bananas left over and I never know what to do with them. I usually end up throwing them out. But this week I was craving banana bread and I saw these brownies and was so excited to try them! If you love banana bread, you are going to LOVE these!



Chocolate Banana Bread Brownies

Ingredients

6 Tbsp butter
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 eggs, beaten
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt

Directions
Preheat oven to 350°
Spray a 9x9 pan with cooking spray, set aside
In a medium sauce pan, combine butter and chocolate chips. Over medium-low heat, melt together, stirring occasionally. When melted, set aside to cool.
In a large bowl combine the mashed bananas, sugar, vanilla and eggs. Mix Well.
Stir in flour and salt until just combined.
Pour all but 1/4 cup melted chocolate into the banana mixture and stir.
Pour the batter into your prepared pan and drizzle remaining 1/4 cup melted chocolate on top, and swirl it into the batter.
Bake 25-30 minutes until the center is set and a toothpick comes out clean.
Brownies will be very dense.
Cool completely and cut into squares

    You can freeze your bananas!!! I just throw them peeled in a freezer ziploc and they are ready for smoothies, bread, muffins, etc. they work great, and you don’t have to rush to make something out of your brown bananas!

    I recently made this recipe (from another site) and found the texture quite odd, almost rubbery, and nothing like a brownie. Not something I would make again.

    I got the same issue as Rhonda, a rubbery texture. But we eated this as a “flan” with some “crème anglaise”. Nice way for extra ripe bananas (no sugar added) !

    I made this last night and it was just awful..Followed the recipe to the tee and I also have to agree with Rhonda, It was very rubbery not even close to a brownie, cake or even a banana bread. And the taste was very bland. Hate wasting good food but this one went into the garbage, But if ya don’t try something new you would be stuck making the same old stuff. Love the picture though!

    Goodness…hate to say this but – didn’t like these, very much, at all. Wasn’t you guys – but me – just my taste for things. Keep rocking – love your site and will be making your 7-up marinade this week. Hope it goes better ! Hugs and Blessings

    I had planned on making these, then got worried after reading some bad reviews. But, I’ve yet to meet a Six Sister recipe I didn’t like, so onward I went with my baking. I am glad I did; they were delish. They were definitely dense, as warned. I wouldn’t call them “rubbery”, however. 1-1/2 c. banana was four bananas for me, not three. If someone were to just use three without measuring, (all depends on the size of the banana too) that could change the amount of banana flavor that is present. Now here is where I changed it up a bit: I used, instead of milk chocolate chips, some semi-sweet (it was what I had) and some…wait for it…peanut butter chips!! Who doesn’t love peanut butter and bananas?! I definitely recommend trying that! I will make again sometime. Now, off to make the chocolate mint brownies! :-)

    My friend gave me these to taste and I loved them. True, the texture is far from being brownie-like, but I loved it. The taste was also great! But I can imagine it can be frustrating if you bite into it, expecting a brownie texture!
