Chocolate Chip Banana Brownies Recipe
Some say blondes have more fun and that would be true for this brownie recipe! The taste of the bananas comes through perfectly and the chocolate chips give just enough chocolatey goodness and texture! Adding cocoa powder would be overpowering. Instead, this recipe for banana brownies comes together with just two ripe bananas in ten minutes or less, even when your kids “help”!
Baking is a life skill and a great activity to do with your kids! There’s no need to rely on boxed baking mixes. In fact, reading the recipe, measuring, mixing, setting the oven, and the whole process helps kids learn about math, food safety, kitchen safety, responsibility, and healthy eating – YES even if it’s brownies! We are going to eat treats anyway, and with homemade you know exactly what’s in them and the hands that prepared them.
These banana brownies are so tasty they don’t need frosting. They’re SO tasty, they’ll be gone before breakfast if your family is anything like mine! (true story) That had *nothing* to do with me cutting small slivers off the edge every time I went into the kitchen – it doesn’t count if it’s not a square piece. #fact
I hope this recipe becomes a family favourite for you like it is for me!
