Dark Chocolate Banana Brownies with Chocolate Glaze


By on 2/01/2021 12:11:00 PM

Brownies are not always my favorite dessert--but, these dark chocolate banana brownies are rich and moist--and the kids and I love them!  The glaze is optional--so, if you are worried that they will be too sweet once the glaze sinks into the brownies--feel free to leave it off or drizzle individual brownies with the glaze! These dark chocolate banana brownies give us a break from banana bread and muffins when I have a few over-ripe bananas lying about!

Instructions for Dark Chocolate Banana Brownies with Chocolate Glaze 

Prepare the Baking Dish & the Oven.  Lightly grease a 9 inch square glass baking dish. and preheat oven to 350 °F.

Combine the Wet Ingredients.  Fully blend the mashed banana, eggs and vanilla in a small mixing bowl.  Try to avoid large chunks of banana by blending them well at this point. 

Combine the Dry Ingredients.  In a small mixing bowl, stir together the flour and cocoa powder until well blended.

Melt the Sugar, Butter, & Chocolate.  In a medium saucepan, over low heat, melt the butter, brown sugar and chocolate until smooth.  Be sure to stir constantly and remove from heat as needed to prevent the chocolate from burning.

Blend the Brownie Batter.  Add a couple of tablespoons of warm chocolate mixture to the banana mixture and stir to warm up the banana/egg combination so that you don't scramble the eggs!  Add the remaining warm chocolate mixture to the banana mixture and beat together.  Add the cocoa mixture and stir until well mixed.

Bake.  Pour into baking pan and back for about 35 minutes.   

Prepare the chocolate glaze.  In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar and cocoa powder.  Stir in the vanilla and water until smooth  and ready to drizzle.

Glaze, Cut & Serve.  Pour the glaze over the warm brownies, cut into squares and serve. I like to let the glaze harden a bit on the brownies before serving.
