Banana Bread Brownies

“The older you get, the better you get, unless you are a banana.”

It’s true that once bananas grow old, they may no longer be good for eating, BUT they can be wonderful for baking. One recipe I love to make with ripened bananas is banana bread. It’s one of my favorite things I remember my Mom making as a child because the whole house always smelled like banana bread goodness. Recently I had some over-ripened bananas lying around and I thought about making some bread. However, when I came across this recipe, I was intrigued by the idea of creating something new with bananas. This recipe was a great find because these banana bread brownies with browned butter frosting are absolutely delicious! They are very moist and yield about 2 dozen brownies, so they are good to bring to a party or potluck. Also, the browned butter in the frosting adds another dimension that takes them to the next level! If you are interested making these tasty brownies, I encourage you to read through the recipe first since there are two sets of ingredients and directions (one for the banana bread base and one for the browned butter frosting). Enjoy!
