Chocolate Banana Brownies
Sorry for the quick hit here but I was tweeting about these brownies and how delicious they are so I needed to get it up quickly in my very limited time!
I took my favorite brownie recipe and replaced all of the fat from the butter with 1/2 cup of mashed ripe bananas and then placed slices on the top. These turned out moist and cakey on the bottom and deliciously gooey on top…
I made these from the following recipe but when thinking about it I really want to try it with a boxed brownie mix. It should work the same! Replace the full 1/3 cup of oil with 1/3 cup mashed up banana and follow the rest of the instructions…
Chocolate Banana Brownies adapted from Cooks.com
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup mashed bananas
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup flour
Sliced bananas for topping
Preheat oven to 350°F degrees.
Mix banana with 3/4 cup of cocoa powder. Then add 2 cup of sugar, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 2/3 cup flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Mix to combine.
Grease a 9X9 baking pan and bake for 35-40 minutes.
Remove from oven. Allow to cool for 5 minutes and gently remove from pan to cooling rack. Allow to cool completely before cutting and serving.
