Banana Nut Brownie Recipe - plus a fantastic frosting!

These Banana Nut Brownies with browned butter frosting are nothing short of sinful!


In my kitchen, browning bananas are a recurring eye sore. So, determined to put the bananas to good use, I've found finally pinpointed my ultimate banana dessert for those over-repined bananas.


By creating a batter that is more brownie than bread, this recipe will stun your tastebuds. Moist and flavorful, the brownie is a treat in itself. But then there's the browned butter frosting that knocks this treat out of the park.

I must admit, though, browning butter has been a baking fear of mine. Every bakers' notes emphasize watching the butter closely as when it turns it turns quickly. After taking the time to make my first browned butter recipe, I can now tell you with full faith that it's not so bad. Yes, you should watch the butter and stir it constantly, but it's nothing to fret over!

With football season officially having kicked off, kids back in school and the holiday season looming, now is the time to share those treats that spread a little joy. I hope you and your families enjoy these Banana Nut Brownies!
