Browned Butter Banana Bread Brownies now, that’s almost a tongue-twister 🙂
Even though that’s quiet the name I came up with… these Browned Butter Banana Bread Brownies were gone faster than I could say MISS-I-SS-I-SS-I-P-I !!! Holy Cow they were good AND this was a wonderful way to use up my 4 very ripe banana’s!
I learned a really cool trick at Evo in the Truvia Cooking Workshop from Marissa Churchill- she said if butter was browned you could use half the amount and still get the same flavor! SO, I gave that little skinny tip a try on these brownies and she was totally spot-on!! They tasted just fabulous…
Browned Butter Banana Bread Brownies might be a mouth-full to say BUT, oh my! You won’t believe how deliciously melt-in-your-mouth wonderful they are 🙂
