Bananas and chocolates are two of my daughter’s favorite. Brownies, on the other hand, is a dessert that she seldom craves. She likes it though, but she prefers desserts with some fruits in it. That’s why she was thrilled when I made her this Banana Brownie. She fell in love the first time she tasted it. One bite and she’s hooked. I think it is way better than the classic chocolate brownie. It tastes different of course because of the banana in it. It’s deliciously different, still chocolatey, smooth, sweet but different. She brought some in school and I think all of her friends agreed that it’s the new brownie.
2 cups of Gold medal UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour (bleached flour toughens baked goods)
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup of white sugar
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
2 large eggs
1/4 tsp. salt
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1/2 cup of banana, mashed with a fork (about one medium-large banana)
10 ounces of Hershey’s semi-sweet chocolate baking melts (or 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips)
1/4 cup of Nestle’s chocolate chips for the top
