My sweet tooth was getting the best of me yesterday. I was on the hunt for something tasty and delicious – but easy and simple, too. I stumbled upon The Messy Baker Blog and as soon as I read the title of this recipe I was sold. Even better, they only took 30 minutes and I conveniently had 1 ripe banana left- how perfect! The best part was the amazing aroma of the batter – the brown butter mixed with brown sugar and banana – LUSH!!! I wish I had waited to make these for Valentines Day – but that’s ok, I’ll just have to bake something else this week.
Chocolate Chip Brown Butter Banana Bourbon Blondies
Yield: 12 small blondies
Prep Time: 10
Cook Time: 30
Total Time: 40
1/2 cup + 1 TBSP unsalted butter, melted, browned and cooled
1 ripe banana - the more ripe, the better
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
¼ cup bourbon (or whiskey)
1 cup, plus 2 tbs. all-purpose flour
¼ tsp. salt
⅔ cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8x8 or 9x9 square baking pan - I used butter to grease.
In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, add the unsalted butter and simmer until brown and nutty. Cool about 5-10 minutes before using.
In a large bowl, mash the banana and add in the brown sugar and mix well until smooth.
Add the slightly cooled brown butter, whisk to combine. Whisk in the egg and vanilla extract and mix well.
Whisk in bourbon.
Stir in flour and salt until incorporated.
Fold in chocolate chips.
Transfer the mixture to the prepared brownie pan
Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
