Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a deep baking pan.

  • Melt chocolate and butter in top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching.

  • Mix eggs and vanilla extract together in a large bowl; mash bananas into egg mixture until well mixed.

  • Combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and baking powder in a separate bowl.

  • Mix chocolate mixture into the banana mixture; add flour mixture and stir until smooth. Pour mixture into the greased baking pan.

  • Bake in preheated oven until top is dry and edges have started to pull away from the sides of the pan, about 60 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

If you are using more than 3 bananas, add 1 egg to the recipe.

This recipe rises like mad to make thick, fluffy brownies so use a deep baking dish to avoid a mess in the oven. As an alternative, you could reduce the amount of baking powder but this recipe does yield nice moist brownies.

Keep an eye on the oven as all cook times vary.

1.18.17 If you re wondering what size dish to use as I was I used a 9 x13 dish and my brownies baked up to about 1-1/2 high. Sorry a deep baking pan easily could have been clarified to a specific size I just guessed looking at the amount of batter. This recipe has a pound of chocolate chips in it so I didn t think it needed another 1 cup of sugar and cut that to 1/2 cup ( could be a personal taste preference thing). I like nuts in brownies so I added 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. Also watch your time and check your brownies as mine were done in 45 minutes. Chocolate and banana are good partners and you definitely will taste that layer of banana. Nice texture nice flavor and good brownies! Read More

Super yummy! I used 5 smaller bananas and added extra egg. only took 55 minutes to bake. fluffier than regular brownie but moist. I also added 1/2 cup chopped pecans to batter and sprinkled larger pieces on top before baking. Great combo of chocolate banana and nuts. Read More

Very good cake not brownies. I made in a smaller pan and then in a bigger pan both were good. Smaller pan was done at 45 minutes. Used about 1/3 c splenda mix for baking instead of full amt sugar as called for and was plenty sweet. Banana flavor is not strong but just enough. Great with whipped cream. Read More

I did make this. Everything went perfectly. Except I missed the Footnotes. I used 3 Bananas & 4 eggs. Which I believe is why it is so fluffy. But very very yummy with a crisp top. So if you too follow the directions solely as written. Read More
