Banana and Walnut Brownies

Rated as 4.8 out of 5 Stars

"I was wondering how to zest-up the traditional brownie recipe and, coincidentally, had a banana as well. If you're a banana-lover, you'll dig this recipe! The banana also moistens the brownie bars, so it's a win-win!"

Followed exactly except did not fold walnuts in. I sprinkled on top on half the pan because not all of my family likes nuts in their brownies. That being said, this tasted delicious. I baked for...
