Do you love banana bread? Do you love blondies? Why not take the flavor of banana bread and the texture of blondies and smash them together? That's exactly what this recipe does and it is kind of genius.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9 by 13 inch pan. Set aside.
In a large bowl, stir together sugars and butter until combined. Mix in the bananas, vanilla, and eggs. Stir in the flour and salt. Fold in the pecans until evenly distributed.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted in the center of the blondies comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs. Cool completely in pan before cutting into bars.
Blondies may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days, or frozen, individually wrapped in parchment and foil and placed in a zipper bag, for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature for about an hour or in the microwave 30 seconds.
