Banana Brownies~

I made these brownies a few days ago and originally, I meant to just make brownies, but there was this overripe banana beckoning to me from the fridge, so I decided to add that along with some other ingredients.  This resulted in an extremely light yet fudge-y, moist brownie.  My co-workers really enjoyed it and the flavor of the banana paired really well with the chocolate. It’s definitely a keeper of a recipe and I like that it’s easy to throw together!



-3/4 stick of unsalted butter

-5 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate

-1/3 cup granulated sugar

-1 tsp vanilla extract

-1 ripe banana

-1 egg

-1/4 tsp salt

-1/2 cup AP flour

-1/4 cup milk


-無塩バター(45 g)

-チョコレート(100 g)

-グラニュー糖 (67 g)

-バニラエッセンス(小さじ 1)




-強力粉(64 g)

-牛乳(59 ml)


  1. Melt the butter and chocolate over a double broiler until smooth and remove from the heat.
  2. Preheat the oven to 325 ºF
  3. Once the chocolate and butter cool, mix in the sugar, vanilla, and salt. Add in the egg and mix to combine.
  4. Add the banana and milk and mix until smooth.
  5. Add in the flour and fold until completely incorporated.
  6. Pour batter in a greased loaf pan and bake for 30 minutes. Let the pan cool to room temperature before flipping it to release the cake.
  7. Cut the cake into squares and you’re ready to go!


  1. バターとチョコレートを溶かします。
  2. オーブンを160ºC予熱で温めます。
  3. 溶かしたバターとチョコに砂糖、塩、とバニラを加え、よくかき混ぜます。卵を加えてまたよく混ぜます。
  4. バナナと牛乳を加えてよくかき混ぜます。
  5. 強力粉を加えてまた混ぜます。
  6. 生地をクッキングシート又はフォイルを敷いたケーキ型(スクエア型)に流し入れ、30分焼きます。焼き終わったら、型から出して、四角形に切ります。

You could definitely add walnuts or some other nuts into these brownies.  If banana’s aren’t your thing, simply replace the banana with a second egg.  If you’re vegan, simply replace the butter with vegan butter, the egg with another banana and the milk with soy or almond milk!

Hugs and puppies!
