I appear to be unable to maintain bananas in the house until everyone decides they no longer want to eat them all at once. Then we’re trapped on the counter with overripe, spotted bananas! We adore banana bread with chocolate chips, but instead of preparing our usual banana bread, I experimented with swirling banana bread batter into brownies to see how it turned out. Banana bread and brownies, it turns out, are a terrific combo!
The flavour of the combination of Banana and Chocolate is vastly underappreciated. The chocolate brings some bitterness to help balance the sweetness of the bananas, which should be exceptionally ripe and luscious in this recipe!
This recipe for banana bread brownies is so rich and creamy, and they’re not dry brownies at all. In terms of texture, we’d say that this recipe produces a dessert that resembles a brownie more than banana bread.
While you may like nice banana bread, there are times when you need to branch out! This is an excellent way to use up any bananas you may have just lying around or inside your freezer.
The banana bread brownies combine 2 of your probably favourite flavours deliciously. It’s a good mixture of banana bread and brownie. You will make two bowls with distinct flavours, then mix them all in one baking pan.
- 3/4 cups of salted butter
- 1 small cup of granulated sugar
- half a cup of brown sugar
- 3 large-sized eggs
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour
- Half a teaspoon of salt
- 1 cup of semisweet divided chocolate chips
- Half a cup of over-riped mashed bananas
- Half a teaspoon of baking powder
- Half a teaspoon of the unsweetened powder of cocoa
- Start by preheating the oven to 350°, then get a 9inch squared baking pan containing a paper sling.
- Take a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar, and the coarse one, and get the eggs beaten once more.
- Mix the flour and salt in a small-sized mixing bowl, then stir until it gets well combined.
- Get the bananas mashed in a separate medium-sized bowl and sprinkle the baking powder on the top. To blend everything, stir it well together. Use half of the batter and pour it into the basin or bowl containing the bananas and keep going, then set it aside.
- Use the remaining half of the batter and combine it with the cocoa powder and almost all chocolate chips while reserving a few to sprinkle them on top of the brownies. Stir everything together to blend it well.
- Get half of the brownie batter and spoon it into the prepared pan. You do not need to get the bottom of the pan covered. Overtop the brownie batter, pour the banana bread mixture and put the remaining spoonfuls of brownie batter on the top, then combine the two mixes very gently with a small knife. You may add some extra chocolate chips on top.
- You may add some chopped pecan or walnuts to the mixture; they can offer a great taste and flavour, as well as a bit of crunch to the texture.
- We use the standard unsweetened cocoa powder; however, the Dutch-processed cocoa powder might yield a darker flavour of chocolate if you want.
