Banana Blondies with Brown Butter Frosting

I am super into browning butter, just like any good food blogger is, I guess. And isn’t it a strange world we live in where food blogger is an actual job? Freaking crazy. Awesome, yes…but also crazy.

But you know what is actually NOT awesome….is buying a car when you are a food blogger. Filling out the “occupation” slot on the credit application is very confusing. To both me and the credit manager guy.

So like, do I put BLOGGER? That sounds so…I don’t know…not like a real job?

And then ALL THE QUESTIONS you get after you hand over the application…you make MONEY blogging? How does that work? Where does the money come from? How? HOWWW?

So yeah, I ended up putting “Website Publisher”, which I thought at the  time sounded super grown up and profesh. Until the guy came out and asked me what that meant. And I had to say blogger anyway.

Anyway. Next time I will just write “Food Blogger” as my occupation with my URL next to it.

Let’s now talk blondies. With browned butter, because it’s my JOB.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

OMG! These are really yummy. I will not need to make banana bread again, this will be my new go to recipe!! The only change I made was that I didn’t want them to be too sweet so I only made 1/2 the icing and added 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla. Delish, thank you!

Made these on Day 2 of Self Quarantine. Very good and comforting. This morning while enjoying with my coffee on Day 3, I realized it’s a great mix of butter and sugar with a touch of banana. Have bookmarked for the next lockdown!

I definitely want to try this recipe from looking at the amazing pictures and reading the positive reviews. I was wondering if it’s possible to add an extra banana to the recipe. ( I have an extra banana and I don’t want it to go to waste). If yes, would it change the rest of the ingredients measurements or baking time? Also is it possible to use less sugar for the blondies and for the frosting?

I doubled the recipe to bake in a jelly roll pan, fell a little short on the brown sugar. So…I added 1/4 cup REAL maple syrup, and ohmyLordIthinkIdiedandwenttoheaven….and I haven’t even put them in the oven yet, never mind the frosting….this will be a frequent repeat! Super simple, fast.
