Banana Brownies

Nick and I try to be healthy. We buy fruits and vegetables and wheat bread instead of white. I try to not use cheese and butter in my cooking all the time (that’s a hard one). We go to the gym and I take the dog for a run/walk everyday. But then things like this happen…

The bananas start to go bad, because we’ve been eating bagels for breakfast and I have to use them before they go to waste… I can’t just throw them out! So we put them brownies :)

*2 Bananas *1 box brownie mix *1/4 cup water *3 eggs *1 cup oil

This recipe is super simple and the bananas make the brownies extra moist and chewy. I’ve often thought of putting peanut butter chips into the mix as well but the simplicity of the chocolate and banana is too good on it’s own. (I love my Le Creuset pink glitter spatula)


 1. Follow instructions on the box for the brownie mix and baking.

2. Pour half of the batter into a pan lined with foil and then greased (better for removing stick free). Place your sliced bananas in rows and then top with the rest of the batter.

3. Let your boyfriend lick the remaining batter in the bowl and on the spoon. (That’s a rule in this household)

4. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out of the center perfectly clean. Cool before you cut and serve.

    Okay, I can’t read posts like these especially when the kids have been out of school for 4 days now…I am craving chocolate and bake when I’m snowed in, not a good combo for the no more sweets after December! Hope you had a wonderful week and a great weekend!! xo
