Chunky Monkey Brownies

Can I just say, “YUM!?” You know that if I am posting a dessert it is: a/ super simple to prepare; and b/ a crowd-pleaser. You’ll find these Chunky Monkey Brownies to be reminiscent of my Nutella Banana Swirl Muffins because of the banana-chocolate combination. But while the muffins may sneak by at breakfast, these brownies may have to suffice as a mid-morning, after-school or post-dinner snack.

Be sure to make the Chunky Monkey Brownies for an audience (ideally a gaggle of children) or you just may find yourself working your way through the entire pan. Not that I would know anything about that…

Enjoy!
