A delicious made from scratch vegan ooey-gooey brownie that is loaded with peanut butter, chocolate, and bananas!
To make it look like rotting bananas on my counter is intentional, I turn them into things like these delicious Vegan Peanut Butter Banana Brownies! These are so easy to make my 6 year-old son can whip up a batch in just a few minutes! I confirm correct measurements and put them in the oven, but other than that he sees them through from start to finish.
2 Over Ripe Bananas
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Vegan Butter, Melted
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
3/4 cup Flour
1/8 tsp Salt
1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, use a fork to mash the bananas. Add the sugar, 1/2 cup of melted butter, and vanilla. Whisk until combined.
Add the flour, salt, and cocoa powder. Whisk until well combined.
Pour batter into greased 9 x 9 pan.
Use a spoon to add dollops (about 1/2 cup) of peanut butter on top of the batter. Using a butter knife, swirl the peanut butter into the brownie batter.
Optional: I like to drizzle additional melted peanut butter on the top of the brownies before baking. Then lightly swirl into the top of the batter. It gives them a nice thin layer of peanut butter, like pictured!
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the center no longer jiggles when you shake the pan.
