Banana Cinnamon Chip Blondies

My little sister B (Happy Birthday B!) was in town earlier this year and put in a request for something with banana in them. So I headed over to my Google Reader to see what was available in the blogs that I read. I came across a few appetizing recipes, and chose this one because I had recently aquired some cinnamon chips and had no idea what to do with them.

These little blondies packed quite a punch. The pecans provide a nice crunch. The cinnamon chips compliment that banana blondies perfectly. B, Hubby, and I gobbled these up at an embarassing rate. If you have some cinnamon chips lying around, definitely try these. If you don’t have cinnamon chips already, but see them at the store, buy them so you can make these. Then send me a thank you note for passing along this awesome recipe 🙂

    Was the consistency like ice cream? It sounds cool and summery. Plus you probably get super brownie points for submitting so early!

    The texture isn’t quite as creamy as ice cream… It’s more frozen than that(?) They are really good though!

    I know this post is like a year old, but I followed a link from another page and found it. Question – do you have to keep them frozen until serving? We’re going to a pool party, so they might be outside for a while. Will they melt?

    If I remember correctly, they will melt. They might be fine for a little while, but not all afternoon. Sorry I can’t be more help!
