If you are a big fan of bananas (me, me!), then today’s recipe is just for you. I have taken my favourite brownie recipe and stuffed them full of bananas, which makes for a SUPER fudgy and moist brownie. You’re seriously gonna love them! 

These brownies are loaded with 4 large bananas. Two mashed bananas go into the batter, and two whole bananas, cut in half, are placed on top of the batter. Mmmm.

Ingredients you’ll need for Fudgy Banana Brownies:

  • unsalted butter
  • granulated sugar
  • cocoa powder
  • salt
  • large eggs
  • vanilla extract
  • large bananas (you’ll need 4)
  • plain/all-purpose flour
  • chocolate chips

To make these brownies, add the butter, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt to a microwave-safe bowl, and heat in 30 second intervals, stirring after each one, until the butter is melted and the mixture feels very warm to the touch.

Add the eggs, vanilla, and TWO mashed bananas, and mix until combined. Fold in the flour, then the chocolate chips.

Pour the batter into an 8×8-inch square baking pan lined with parchment or foil, and spread out evenly. Slice the remaining bananas in half lengthwise, and place on top of the batter.

Bake for 45 – 50 minutes, or until the centre is no longer giggly and a toothpick inserted comes out almost clean with a few moist crumbs. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.

Because these brownies are incredibly moist and fudgy, I like to keep mine refrigerated and serve them chilled.

  • loaded with banana flavour

Want to store these brownies, or make them ahead of time? They can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. They can also be frozen for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge before serving. 🙂

Ingredients
  • 1 and 1/4 sticks unsalted butter 140g
  • 1 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar 300g
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder 75g
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs cold
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 large bananas
  • 1/2 cup plain/all-purpose flour 60g
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips 90g
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Line an 8x8-inch square baking pan with foil or parchment paper, and set aside.
  2. Place the butter, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt into a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each one, until the butter is melted and the mixture feels very warm to the touch.
  3. Mix in the eggs, one at a time, then the vanilla and TWO mashed bananas. Fold in the flour until fully combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.

  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread out evenly. Slice the remaining bananas in half lengthwise, and place on top of the batter.

  5. Bake for 45 - 50 minutes, or until the centre is no longer giggly and a toothpick inserted comes out almost clean with a few moist crumbs. You may cover the pan loosely with foil past the 30 - 40 minute mark to prevent excessive browning.

  6. Allow to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before cutting into bars. I refrigerated my brownies before slicing for extra neat, clean cuts.

Notes

These brownies are best served chilled as they are very moist.

Brownies stay fresh, stored in an airtight container, in the fridge for up to 1 week. They also freeze well for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge before serving.

    Woah Marsha! Those are some mega fudgy brownies. . .just the way I like them btw. And the addition of the banana is genius. I just love how that yellow pops up against all that fudginess.
