Banana Chocolate Brownies

September 26, 2012



I know, everybody is in pumpkin-mode when it comes to food blogs.  Honestly, we are not huge pumpkin eaters.  Here and there. But, not over the top.  Now, bananas we like. And brownies? We are kinda fanatical. Mr. Plain is a primo  boxed brownie baker.  I think he lived on brownies and Kraft Mac n Cheese in college. So, he is pretty happy when I make either.  Last week, my mother brought me three boxes of brownie mix.  Three.  They were on sale at her grocery store, so, she grabbed a bunch and gave me and my sisters a few each.  Isn't she a great mom?   I made one box the standard way.  The next, a bit of a switch up. Bananas! Yep! These are so moist, chewy and have a nice banana flavor to them.  Topped off with some peanut butter frosting..these are heaven.
Now..what to do with the third box???

Ingredients:
for brownies
1-18.3oz box of fudge brownie mix (for 13 x 9 pan)
1 egg
1/3 cup vegtable  oil
1/4 cup water
2 medium size bananas, mashed

for frosting:
1-1/2 cup powder sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
5 TBSP milk

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Spray 13 x 9 baking pan with non stick cooking spray.  Mix brownie mix, egg, oil, water and bananas. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. Bake according to box directions ( about 30mins) or until toothpick comes out clean.
Mix ingredients for frosting until well combined and frost on cooled brownies.
