These are rich, fudgy brownes. No light cakey stuff around here.
No ma’am.

The bananas make these extra moist and super fudgy. So much so they almost seem under-baked, but they aren’t. They are just to die for chewy. And we all need some of that in our lives!

These brownies have that beautiful crispy top and soft, chewy interior. The swirls of peanut butter are the only interruption to the triple chocolate brownie perfection.

These Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Brownies are rich and chewy! The perfect combination of flavors! Plus a new way to use up those over-ripe bananas on your counter!  These decadent brownies have both cocoa powder and melted chocolate in the batter AND, in case that just wasn’t chocolatey enough for you (when is it ever, honestly?), some extra chocolate chips are studded throughout.

The banana flavor is present but not overpowering. In each bite you get serious chocolate, banana and a little bit of the peanut butter swirl. Oh and a sprinkle of Maldon sea salt just to finish it off.

Salty, sweet, rich, chewy and creamy. Good stuff, guys. Good stuff.

You know what else is kinda cool about these brownies? Eggs are the only leavening. It makes the combination method a little bit interesting, but the results are pure bliss.

Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Brownies

These fudgy Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Brownies are rich and chewy! Each bite has a triple dose of chocolate, a hint of banana and peanut butter! Your new favorite way to use over-ripe bananas!

Ingredients

  • 380g Semi-Sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons All-Purpose flour (150g)
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder (I used Dutch processed) (30g)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 1/3 cup granulated sugar (480g)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 ¼ cup ripe bananas, smashed (320g or 3 medium bananas)
  • ½ cup chocolate chips, mounded (100g)
  • ½ cup peanut butter, slightly warmed
  • Flaked sea salt for sprinkling

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and line a 12 inch by 16 inch sheet pan with cooking spray or butter.
  2. In a medium bowl combine flour, cocoa powder and salt; whisk to combine and set aside.
  3. Combine chopped chocolate, butter and vanilla in a heat-proof bowl over a pot of simmering water; heat until just melt (you don’t want it hot) and set aside. Do not begin the eggs until the chocolate is almost melted.
  4. Add eggs and sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat until pale and fluffy on medium-high speed. This is your leavening, so don’t under beat them.
  5. Turn off the mixer, removed the bowl and pour the chocolate in all at once; fold in the chocolate with a large spatula. Fold in the bananas.
  6. Sift the flour mixture into the bowl and fold into the egg mixture until it is still a little streaky.
  7. Add the chocolate chips and fold to incorporate. Spread evenly in the prepared pan with an offset spatula.
  8. Drop the peanut butter onto the batter and swirl with a skewer, toothpick, knife or your offset spatula.
  9. Bake 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Sprinkle with flaked sea salt and allow to cool before removing from the pan.

Notes:

You can bake these in a metal 9x11 pan but they will take longer to bake.

    How many bananas are needed for the Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Brownies? I think they’ve been missed off the ingredients list.

    • Lindsey says

      Good catch, Anne Marie! I don’t know how that happened when I copied it over. You will need 1 1/4 cups mashed bananas, which is 320g or 3 medium bananas. Sorry about that! Happy baking!

  2. stephanie says

    What a good IDEA!!! Now I am thinking blondie, PB, banana, and fluff! (Where is the banana in the recipe – did I miss it?)

    • Lindsey says

      Oh a pb, banana, and fluff blondie sounds divine, Stephanie! I just updated the recipe with the banana. I don’t know how that got cut off when I copied it from Word. Have a fantastic Sunday!

    Bananas in brownies?? Say what? How have I lived my life without ever making these? Hmmm…I need to get up right now and make a batch. And since bananas are healthy, that means I can eat a whole batch, too, right? :-)

      I love how you and I are *always* on the same page – there are bananas which makes these brownies totally healthy! There would be no judgement coming from me if you ate the whole batch!

  4. says

    I’m sold on this Lindsey, and I almost always have brown bananas staring me in the face. I have to toss them in the freezer because there are too many to deal with sometimes! These look delicious and I love those pretty peanut butter swirls. :)

      I definitely am guilty of the freezer trick too! I don’t even want to know how many I have lingering back there lol! More than I can use in smoothies, thats for sure! ;-)

  5. says

    Wow – these are mesmerizing – your photos are phenomenal -especially that first one – ooh – these brownies are sheer decadence! Love love love the nanners in them and Lindsay, you are spot on – there can never ever be too much chocolate in brownies! Yay for the sprinkling of the chips!

    You’ll judge me… but I don’t like banana bread that much. Or banana flavored anything for that matter. BUT… I love bananas. I have one every single day at work. Unless they are too brown, in which case I don’t like them. I know, I’m weird. I hope we can still be friends. However, surround bananas with chocolate and PB… totally legit and I’ll eat the whole batch. We should probably test it out though. So make me a batch of these ;)

      Say what now?! Just when you think you know someone…I guess we can still be friends but I’m a little shaken. ;-)
      I also feel like I need to force you to try my banana bread. Just to be sure you aren’t mistaken. It has a sugar on the outside. Sugar, Chris. Sugar.

    Hi thanks for sharing this recipe

    I would love to try these brownies but wanted to use Nutella also or instead

    Do you think this would work? And if so, do you have any idea as to how you would incorporate it?

    Thanks
    Paula

    • Lindsey says

      Hi Paula! Just swirl the nutella on top at the end instead of the peanut butter! It will work perfectly! Happy baking!
