Happy fall day everyone. Hope all is well in your household. If not make a batch of these banana peanut butter chocolate chip blondies and I guarantee it will be fantastic. You may even eat the whole pan yourself (I didn’t do that 🙂 hehehe) They are that yummy. I’m tellin’ ya, they are soft and chewy and loaded with chocolate chips. They have a sweet banana flavor with a hint of peanut butter in the background.
So I have been a cookie sellin’ mama these past few days. My girls and I have been selling cookies as a fundraiser for their school and it made me want some cookies bad. Like cookie monster- ME WANT COOKIE- style.
I also was given a ton, and I mean a ton, of pretty ripe bananas. I didn’t really want a freezer full of ripe bananas thus these babies er blondies were born. And as I said earlier they turned out fantabulous! So don’t freeze those overripe bananas next time give these a try instead.
- 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter melted
- 1 banana mashed
- 1/4 cup peanut butter I used creamy
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, butter, banana, peanut butter, eggs and vanilla just until combined.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well and add to creamed mixture. Combine just until moistened and stir in chocolate chips.
Spread into a greased 13x9 inch baking pan. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool before cutting into bars.
Keep baking closer to the 18 minute mark if you like under baked gooey bars.
