Fudgey Banana Brownies

These brownies are seriously dangerous. Dangerously delicious. I was a bit skeptical about how they’d turn out. I figured the banana would just serve to boost the moistness of the brownies. When I took my first bite, I realized that the banana flavor is actually pretty strong.

Hubby did thank me for warning him that they were banana flavored. I think if you bit into one and weren’t expecting the banana flavor, it would really throw you off!

I threw these brownies into the freezer so we wouldn’t eat the whole pan of them in a day or two… They were great cold, at room temperature, and even better zapped in the microwave for a few seconds. Of course, if you have a warm gooey brownie, you might as well top it with a scoop of ice cream and some leftover dulce de leche. That was definitely my favorite way to enjoy these brownies!

    If you ever want to try them, we could make a baking date out of it. There are plenty of variations of flavor combinations to be tried.

    I know what you mean about beginners luck. I might be apprehensive to try them again since our first shot was so successful.
