Chocolate Chip Banana Blondies

April 23, 2020Teresa

Chocolate Chip Banana Blondies are so delectable. No, you won’t be able to stop at one! Don’t even try. These luscious jewels combine bananas, chocolate chips and pecans in the blondie. The Browned Butter Icing is topped with miniature chocolate chips that will gob smack you from the first bite!

John needed some goodies to take to some friends back in February. I threw together these blondies based on my Banana Blondies recipe. I had plenty of ripe bananas that needed using up and this recipe really fits the bill for that. It does have a few additional steps since you brown the butter for the blondie as well as the icing. But it’s not an overly difficult recipe. Plus, the outcome is outstanding. My Butterscotch version is also delightful.

Chocolate Chip Banana Blondies are terrific to serve as a dessert for any time of the year. They’re great for potlucks, tailgating parties or summer holiday fun like Memorial Day or Fourth of July. It’s a fantastic way to get a dose of chocolate and use up overripe bananas at the same time! Surely a win-win for almost any household. 🙂

  3. This may take five or ten minutes; set aside and cool 5 minutes.
  4. Place browned butter in a mixing bowl.
  5. Add sugar and mix thoroughly.
  6. If the mixture has not cooled sufficiently, wait a few minutes before adding eggs, vanilla and salt. (So the egg doesn’t scramble!).

  9. Mix until combined.
  10. Pour mixture into a greased 9x13” glass baking dish.

  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Cool icing 5 minutes.
  5. Add powdered sugar and whisk until smooth.
  6. Spread over cooled blondies.
  7. Sprinkle miniature chocolate chips immediately over top.
  8. Allow blondies to set before cutting into bars.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: The best way I can describe the browned butter is it looks almost like there is a head on it.

NOTE: These bars are easier to cut if you refrigerate them about an hour beforehand.
