Bananas add a new twist to brownies. No frosting needed, just sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.

These were tasty, yet not brownies like I was expecting. I have to agree with Denise about it being more like a bread than a brownie. If you really want banana brownies, make a basic brownie batter and add mashed bananas.

AMAZING. What took them over the top was the chocolate chips I added instead of nuts. A BIG hit in my house.

Very moist and quite bananary. More cakey than fudgy brownies but they are very tasty. I used a mixture of nuts, dried fruit and roughly chopped milk chocolate bar. I think this additional chocolate made them a bit greasy.
