Cookie Butter and Banana Blondies


If you have some ripe bananas just sadly laying on top of your kitchen counter, put them to a good and delicious use. While my all time favorite is a good 'ole banana bread. I'm also up for using the versatile fruit in other yummy treats. I have made Layered Banana Muffins before and it was a hit too!You can always use a ripe banana as an ingredient substitute. Read on : Healthy Baking Substitutions.

 




Ingredients:

1 cup flour
1/2 cup mashed bananas
1 scoop or 1heaping tbsp of cookie butter ( I used a heaping tbsp)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup light brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup flour


Brown Sugar Drizzle:
    1/2 cup light brown sugar
    2 Tbsp milk
    1 cup powdered sugar

    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350°. Line an 8x8 baking dish with foil and spray with cooking spray.  Prepare all of your ingredients.


    In a mixing bowl combine melted butter and sugar. Mix to combine.


     Add in egg and vanilla. Stir. Mix in a heaping spoonful of cookie butter and stir until well incorporated.


     Stir in salt, flour and banana until batter is smooth and even.Pour into prepared pan.


    Bake for 25-30 minutes. Insert toothpick in the center to check if it is done.
    Transfer pan to wire rack to cool.


    While letting the blondies cool , make the drizzle.




    Brown Sugar Drizzle
    Ina medium saucepan melt butter. Add brown sugar and milk and stir until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat, let it cool for 3 to 5 minutes . Using a whisk, stir in powdered sugar. Drizzle on top of the blondies and let it set before cutting into squares.


     Easy and delicious!
