I have not tried this recipe. I got it from Cheap Cooking.com .
- 1 cup butter
- 6 very ripe bananas
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 eggs
- 3 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Cream butter. Add bananas, sugars, vanilla, and eggs and mix well. Add flour, soda, and salt and mix well. Mix in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.
- Spread into greased 13x9 inch baking pan. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips on top.
- Bake at 350 for 5 minutes. Use a knife to swirl the melted chips on top. Return to oven and bake another 25-30 minutes. Cool and cut into squares.
- Note: These freeze well.
The main reason I tried this recipe was because I had a lot of bananas to use up. The directions which say to take it out after 5 minutes are wrong and did not work at all. That was a complete waste of time. The end result was mediocre. My wife said the chocolate chips added a bitterness to it. It is an ACCEPTABLE recipe, but not a great one. At least I got to use 6 bananas...
This really isn't a brownie. After reading the recipe, I was hoping for a banana flavored blondie type of cookie, but it's really not that either. What it is, is a slightly sweeter than usual banana bread / snack cake - which is fine. Just needs a new name. Easy to make, I made it in a 9x13 pan and it took a about 6 minutes longer than instructed to fully bake, but the end result was moist and tasty. I used chocolate chunks on top instead of chips, and they did not melt fully within the 5 minutes, so didn't swirl so good, but it all tasted good.
These were really easy and really good, very rich and filling. The kids have loved them and it's been nice to nibble on one with coffee in the evening. Thanks for posting such a wonderful recipe.
