Chunky Monkey Brownies

Oh boy!! I posted this pic (see below)¬†yesterday as a sneak peek and Facebook LOVED it!! Everyone wanted the recipe immediately, but since I hadn’t received the two thumbs up from my family….I couldn’t share it!! I only post recipes on here that my family approves of. That way, I know it is family friendly, kid approved, and the recipes are bound to be a hit!

Chunky Monkey Brownies

Well, after dinner, I cut everyone a piece of these brownies and within seconds….YES, seconds….they were gone off each of their plates!! I was shocked!! The chocolate banana combo was amazing!! It wasn’t as rich and heavy as a normal chocolate packed brownie, and was quite moist/fudge like!

This recipe makes a 9 x 13 baking pan worth, so plenty to share….or save for later, right??

Next time you have an extra banana to use up, or are in the mood for a sweet treat, try these!! Family, kid, and heck, even monkey approved (because of the bananas I would assume, lol)
