Easy Banana Brownies

Easy Banana Brownies


"A small banana is added to a basic made-from-scratch brownie for a hint of banana flavor. This is a fudgy brownie and it does not rise much. Add 1/2 cup chopped nuts or mini chocolate chips for more flavor. No mixer required!"

I gave this a go and all in all, it's pretty tasty. My one banana is a bit overwhelming, but I think I just find the combo a bit strange. I will use less butter next time--1/2 cup is an entire s...

My friend made these. She didn't have chocolate chips in the cupboard so she used butterscotch chips instead. Delicious!!! Next we are going to try peanut butter chips!
