Banana Bread Brownies

Certainly! Banana Bread Brownies are a delightful treat that combine the flavors of banana bread with the rich, fudgy texture of brownies. Here’s a basic recipe for you to follow:


For the Banana Bread Layer:

  • 2-3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

For the Brownie Layer:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease or line a baking pan (approximately 9×9 inches) with parchment paper.
  • Prepare the Banana Bread Layer: a. In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork. b. Add melted butter and mix well. c. Stir in vanilla extract, granulated sugar, and the egg. Mix until well combined. d. Sprinkle baking soda and a pinch of salt over the mixture, then gently fold in the flour until just combined. Do not overmix. e. Set the banana bread batter aside.
  • Prepare the Brownie Layer: a. In a separate bowl, melt the butter. Let it cool slightly. b. Whisk in the granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined. c. Add cocoa powder, all-purpose flour, and salt. Stir until the batter is smooth and glossy.

  • Layering: a. Pour about two-thirds of the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan and spread it evenly. b. Spoon the banana bread batter on top of the brownie batter. Use a spatula to spread it evenly, but don’t mix the two batters together.
  • Baking: Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. The baking time might vary, so keep an eye on it.
  • Cooling and Serving: Once baked, remove the pan from the oven and let it cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
  • Cut and Enjoy: Once cooled, carefully lift the banana bread brownies out of the pan using the parchment paper. Cut into squares or rectangles and serve.

Optional: You can also add chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or a swirl of peanut butter into the batter for extra flavor and texture.

Enjoy your delicious Banana Bread Brownies!
