Peanut Butter Banana Brownies


Peanut Butter Banana Brownies

Everybody know brownies are delicious. ESPECIALLY the moist sort. An easy way to make sure any dessert stays moist is to add banana to it. It adds a wonderful flavor and makes the texture irresistibly perfect in every way! Now, bananas and chocolate is great, but throwing peanut butter into the mix is a match made in heaven! Creamy, moist, delicious peanut butter banana brownies are little slices of heaven that never last long in my house.

Peanut Butter Banana Brownies

The way listed below in the recipe is my all time favorite way to make these peanut butter banana brownies BUT you could also try a number of variations! Such as:

  • Adding chopped nuts
  • Changing the peanut butter to your favorite nut butter (or even Nutella!!!)
  • During the holiday season you could try swapping the banana out for some pumpkin puree and adding a sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice mix
  • After it comes out of the oven you could spread peanut butter on the top while its still hot to add an extra bit of peanut butter flavor, and add sliced bananas to the top of the peanut butter!

If you try any of the variations listed above, or anything I missed, let me know in the comments!
