Don't Skip Dessert

What happens when you combine over-ripened bananas, an empty kitchen, a husband working late and a girl who never says no to dessert?

Banana Chocolate Chunk Blondies
Recipe from The Wannabe Chef

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 large bananas, mashed
1/4 cup chocolate chips or chunks
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup all purpose flour

Let oven preheat at 350 degrees. Cream butter and brown sugar until well whipped. Next, add in mashed banana, chocolate chips, vanilla extract and salt. Last, slowly mix in flour until just incorporated. Spread the batter in a small baking pan (9x9) and bake for 4o minutes, or until you can remove a clean toothpick and the edges are brown.

But wait, this is only getting better. In order to make this into the "perfect bite", your blondies need frosting. Duh! While the brownies are baking, whip up a batch of this super easy Fluffy Peanut Butter frosting to top your blonde banana beauties.

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting
Recipe from
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 Tbsp. milk, or as needed
2 cups powdered sugar

Beat peanut butter and softened butter in a medium mixing bowl. Gradually add powdered sugar and when the mixture starts to get thick, add 1 Tablespoon of milk at a time until the frosting is delightfully fluffy and everything you have imagined.

Spread more than a dollop of frosting on warm blondies. Serve "Santa Style" (with ice cold milk).


  1. This sounds like a yummy recipe! Thanks for sharing.

  2. But how do you do that if you are new and find dessert-making difficult, or if you're constantly busy and making dessert is too time-consuming?
