I love making blondies. It’s definitely one of the easiest things to bake when you don’t have a lot of time and want something quick and easy.
These banana blondies are vegan and so delicious. They are made with mashed bananas, coarsely chopped chocolate and nuts. Whatever kind of nut you like will be perfect – such as pecans or walnuts. They are super easy to make, and if you start now, in less than an hour you’ll have a great treat next to your coffee cup.
Whenever I have a few ripe bananas in my kitchen and want to make something a bit more unique than banana bread, I make these blondies. Everyone loves them!
