The fudginess of these brownies comes through in every single bite. When you mix in the mashed bananas, the flavor is out of this world. I’m a fan of baking these brownies together as a family and enjoying every single bite.

My boys love when I make brownies because they get to grab and eat on the run. This makes for a simple dessert that they can enjoy over and over again!

How do you know when brownies are done baking?

After you spread the brownie mixture into the prepared pan, pop it into the oven to bake. Once it turns lightly golden brown, it’s time to do the toothpick test. Take a clean toothpick and stick it into the middle. If it comes out clean, they’re done!
