If you've got over-ripe bananas and a jar of almond butter, grab a baking pan and make these super-easy brownies. Not only are they delicious, but the texture is moist and light, too.

Susie Middleton


  • 1 cup mashed over-ripe bananas (2 1/2 to 3 medium bananas)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup almond butter
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray or grease a 9” x 9” baking dish.

2. Put all of the ingredients into a large bowl and mix until well-combined.

3. Pour the batter into the baking dish and bake for about 35 minutes, or until the brownies have risen, the top looks dry and has a nice sheen, and a toothpick inserted in the middle of the brownies comes out almost clean.

4. Cool completely, cut into squares and enjoy. Store wrapped at room temperature for a couple days or freeze.
