Banana Bread Brownie Swirl

What better way to meet new people than to bring fairly absurd baked goods? It works for me!

IMG_6165Ingredients:

Banana Bread Batter:

  • 3 very ripe bananas, peeled
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Brownie Batter:

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs

Plus:

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips (optional)

Grease a 9X13″ pan and set aside.

To make the banana bread batter, first mash the bananas in a large bowl until smooth.

IMG_6152Stir in the butter.

IMG_6153Add the salt and baking soda, then stir in the sugar, egg, and vanilla.

IMG_6154Add the flour, then set aside.

IMG_6155Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

To make the brownie mixture, stir together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl and set aside.

Stir together the butter, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl.

IMG_6156Beat in the eggs, adding one at a time.

IMG_6157Stir the flour mixture to the butter mixture in 2 additions.

IMG_6158Drop the brownie batter into the pan in large blobs.

IMG_6159Pour the banana bread batter on top.

IMG_6160Drag a knife through, if desired, to mix slightly.

IMG_6161Sprinkle the peanut butter chips over the top, if desired.

IMG_6162 Bake 50-60 minutes (mine was done at 55), until it passes the toothpick test.

IMG_6163Cool in the pan, then slice and serve.

IMG_6166 IMG_6164Each bite is a bit different, depending on how much banana bread or brownie you’re getting, but each is delicious!
