If you’re a fan of banana bread, you’re going to LOVE these banana chocolate chip blondies. Once you taste them, I promise you will never go back to banana bread again.
These bars are super moist, dense, and ooey gooey. Plus, the banana and chocolate chip combo is to die for.
They are also super easy to make. No mixer needed. With just a few basic ingredients, a mixing bowl, spoon and 25 minute baking time, these banana blondies are all yours. It really doesn’t get much easier than this.
