If you’ve got a sweet tooth, this is the recipe for you! Recently this epicly gooey peanut butter banana brownie recipe has become my go-to sweet. It’s easy to make, heavenly delicious, and a perfect combination of all my favorite brownie recipes ever! What’s not to love?
The few additional tips that I would add are that chocolate chips and melting the butter first makes all the difference if you want a beautiful, shiny, crust on top. Also, be sure to bake no more than 50 minutes, and then take it out of the oven to set. That way you can make sure that your brownies are nice and fudgy with every bite.

1 cup sugar
¾ cup cocoa powder
½ cup flour
2 ripe bananas
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup chocolate chips (optional)
2 whole bananas, halved lengthwise (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 180°C, then line a baking tray with foil, or preferably baking paper.
- Microwave the butter in 30 second intervals until it’s completely melted, but not hot – you don’t want it to cook the eggs later! Add the cocoa powder and sugar and mix until thoroughly combined.
- In a separate bowl, mash the 2 ripe bananas. Then add in the eggs, vanilla, flour, peanut butter, and chocolate chips.
- Make sure that the cocoa powder mixture is at least chilled to room temperature (so the eggs don’t cook,) then combine it with the banana-flour mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips if desired.
- Pour the batter into the lined baking tray. Add the sliced banana pieces on top for decoration (optional).
- Bake for no more than 50 minutes, then set it aside to chill to room temperature before cutting. I personally like chilling my brownies in the fridge for an additional 30 minutes – 1 hour so I can cut out perfectly clean squares. Enjoy your peanut butter, banana, and chocolate masterpiece!
