White Chocolate Banana Brownies




Introduction: White Chocolate Banana Brownies

I am a student at UT Austin. I love to cook and I have a YouTube cooking channel: https://www.you...

I recently got this recipe from Back For Second's blog, and I wanted to share it here on Instructables.

These yummy little squares taste a bit like banana bread, but have a sweet, rich flavor from the white chocolate.

Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter

  • 4 oz white chocolate

  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt

  • 1 egg

  • 120 grams of flour

  • 2 medium ripe bananas

  • 1/2 cup white sugar

  • 1 tsp anilla extract

Also, preheat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.

Step 2: Melt It!

Put the butter and chocolate in a medium sized metal bowl and heat over low or medium low heat until melted.

If you are a bit squeamish about putting a metal mixing bowl on your stove, don't worry! You can easily melt this in your microwave using a glass bowl in 30 second bursts.

Step 3: Mash and Mix

In a smaller mixing bowl, mash the bananas using a wooden spoon or potato masher.

Add the sugar to the melted butter and chocolate, stirring thoroughly.

Add the mashed bananas to the butter/sugar/chocolate mixture.

Stir in the egg,

and the salt,

and the vanilla extract.

Finally, add the flour and mix completely.

Step 4: Pan Up and Bake

Move this mixture to an 8 inch square pan that you have pre-lubed with baking spray.

Park it in your 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out (mostly) clean.

Cool for 15 minutes.

Step 5: Cut and Serve

To cut these brownies (bananies?) i inverted the pan over a plate (Running a knife around the perimeter will help this). Then, cut into 16 lovely little cubes.

If you were going to garnish these, a bit of powdered sugar compliments the pale yellow color quite nicely!

I made these brownies and they where a huge hit with my family!!! nom nom nom!!!

Since I come from a country that uses different measures for ingredients, I have calculated the approximate differences. You may want to add or extract a bit from the numbers. :)

50g butter

100g white chocolate

1/4 tsp salt (if you use salted butter, forget this ingredient)

1 egg

120g flour

2 ripe bananas

60g sugger

1 tsp vanilia extract

preheat oven to 175 degrees celsius.

I hope it helps! :)

If ur trying to limit the fat & cholesterol from the eggs, you can omit the egg yolk & use 2 egg whites instead. Applesauce is a 1 for 1 substitute for fats such as butter, margarine & lard.

You might get away with using 1/4 cup of apple sauce... If you try it let me know how it turns out!

I think cocoa would fit better than powdered sugar for decoration...
I'd also suggest trying some additional melted white chocolate, when the whole has gotten cold...

You meant vanilla extract not something else like almond right? 120 grams equals 4 ozs or 1/2 cup right? Just making sure.

These look really good and i will give them a try. It is slightky vexing that you have used 3 different units of measurement, g, oz and cups. Any chance you could make this more consistant and just use one eg g. Thanks.

I see how that could be confusing. I usually only use grams and cups, but the chocolate bar was exactly 4 ounces.

I have not stopped salivating since clicking on the link. I never really think of Instructables for recipes, but am definitely glad that you posted this!

ooo I bet a bit of dark chocolate or banana drizzle over the top and some walnuts would be amazing..

Great little recipe, I think I'll give this a go in the coming days as I have just been inundated with bananas! One thing though, you forgot to add the flour in your write up. Otherwise great instructions :)
