Banana Bread Brownies

Hi there– Saw these banana bread brownies on Pinterest and knew they’d be in our kitchen soon!  I’ve eaten a few (delicious!!) and am taking the rest over to my father-in-law, Stu.  He’s my enthusiastic baking recipient.  We have mutual love of sweet treats.


1 large banana, smashed
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/3 tsp. salt
1 cup walnuts, chopped*

1/4 cup butter, melted
1  1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 tab. milk

Smash the bananas in a mixing bowl.  Stir in the sugar, egg and sour cream.  Then mix in the melted butter and vanilla.  Finally stir in the flour, baking powder, salt and walnuts.

Spoon the batter into a 7″ x 11″ baking dish (or 9″ square) that has been spray with cooking spray.  Bake it up at 375 degrees for 25 minutes, until it is golden on top and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Mix up the glaze ingredients– melted butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and milk, beating until it’s smooth.  And pour directly over the hot banana brownies.  Enjoy!

*That’s a lot of walnuts!  The recipe I worked from used 1/2 cup, but I just like things nutty.
