- MELTED BUTTER – Unsalted
- BROWN SUGAR – Gives the blondies their rich flavor.
- GRANULATED SUGAR –
- EGGS – If possible, bring the eggs to room temperature before adding.
- FLOUR –
- SALT – It’s always important to bake with salt to balance out the sweetness of any dessert.
- VANILLA EXTRACT – We always advise using high quality vanilla extract when baking. It’s worth the extra couple bucks!
BANANA FILLING INGREDIENTS:
- CREAM CHEESE – Fully softened.
- EGG – Room temperature.
- BANANA PUDDING MIX – Any brand. Don’t follow the directions on the box, you’ll just need to mix the powder with the cream cheese and the egg.
Storage, Freezing and Leftovers
Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature. They should be good for about 5 days.
You can freeze banana pudding brownies. Put in a freezer safe container or a freezer bag and it will be good in your freezer for about 3 months. You can cut them into squares beforehand and separate with wax or parchment paper if you’d like. Thaw at room temperature.
Recipe with Box Mix
For a super shortcut, you can use store bought boxed for your brownie batter. Just make it according to the directions on the box. Usually you can find “Blondie Brownie” mix.
Or you can use regular chocolate brownie mix. A lot of people love the taste of banana and chocolate together!
Notes, Tips and FAQS
- DO YOU NEED TO USE BANANA INSTANT PUDDING MIX? – No! Not at all. You can use any other flavor of pudding to add to the cream cheese mixture that sounds good to you!
- ADD VANILLA WAFERS – A lot of recipes tuck some vanilla wafers on top of the brownies before baking. Honestly, we bought some and I just completely forgot to add them for these pictures. So, we highly recommend doing this
- ADD NUTS – Also, adding Walnuts or Pecans is often done. Our son has a tree nut allergy, so we didn’t.
- ADD WHITE CHOCOLATE CHIPS – If you are looking to make the dessert a little richer or sweeter, add some chocolate chips.
- LINE THE BAKING DISH WITH PARCHMENT PAPER – This will make the brownies much easier to take out. Smear a little butter on the pan under the parchment paper to keep it from sliding around while you are pouring the batter in.
- DO YOU HAVE TO SWIRL THE BANANA PUDDING IN? – We love the marble effect you get with this. But you can also just layer the pudding on top for a more layered effect.
