Banana Bread Blondies

Brownies and Bars, Vera's Recipes

If you love banana bread but blondies as well, you must try this easy Banana Bread Blondies recipe. This simple one bowl recipe makes the best, moist and fudgy, banana blondies with brown sugar and cinnamon. And with sweet browned butter frosting they are over the top!

Banana Bread Blondies are delicious snack, lunchbox treat and the easiest and the tastiest dessert ever.

I thought combing two of my favorite treat, banana bread and blondies, would be great. And guess what! I was right, it turned out better than I expected!

Banana Bread Blondies have rich and sweet flavor of banana bread but with fudgy, moist, rich and dense texture. If you are looking for some cakiness of banana bread, you won’t find it here.

So technically, these yummy bars are more like traditional blondie base just with banana mix in. But I called them “bread’ anyway. It’s because of the flavor.

And since I called them ‘bread’ I don’t see why these blondies couldn’t be a breakfast, too?! They are perfectly suitable breakfast in my opinion.

I know that a lot of sugar is not quite healthy breakfast, but I can’t resist. So sue me! I like to eat them for breakfast! You can make them without the glaze if you’ll feel less guilty about it.

Actually these Banana Bread Blondies are great on their own, even without the brown butter frosting. They are already sweet and flavorful. They have amazing, rich flavor  combo of banana, brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla.

Sometime I like to make them without the topping, especially when I need quick and easy snack or dessert. But I like to add a glaze to make them look fancy for some special occasion or a party.

To tell the truth, I became a little obsessed with banana baked goods lately. So if you want more ides go and check!

  1. I have made this recipe EXACTLY as printed above & it is awesome !I DO have 2 questions though ... 1) Can I whip this frosting ? to get enough to frost & fill an 8 or 9 inch cake? 2) Is there a way to make this Chocolate ? I've Googled,,, Brown Butter Chocolate Frosting But have found nothing.My Hubby Loves my chocolate cake & he swooned over this frosting So I was hoping to put them together for him . Hopefully, All answers will be deeply appreciated
    1. Thanks Theresa. I haven't tried to whip this frosting so I can't help you about that. And about the chocolate version you may try to substitute some of the powdered sugar with cocoa powder or sweetened cocoa powder, but I haven't tried that either so I'm just guessing. If you try let me know how it goes.
