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.

  1. This recipe looks great, but 16 servings in an 8×8 pan? Those will be incredibly tiny and not worth the calories. I’m going to see what the nutrition info is without frosting.

    Also, so so so many ads popping and blocking the recipe!

  2. Brown butter and banana for the win! Such good flavor!
    Did anyone else double the recipe but still bake in an 8×8 pan? Thinking a bit thicker would be good… I dont think it needs the frosting. This has plenty of flavor and is quite sweet. May cut back on the sugar and add nuts the next time.






  3. These are so simple to make and delicious. Made them as directed but added in about 1/2 c of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, used GF flour, and topped with a peanut butter frosting. They’re easily adaptable. Highly recommend.






  4. Great recipe for using up bananas. The frosting tastes like fudge. Truly decadent! Love it! Family enjoyed it tremendously.






  5. Super simple even with browning the butter! But I’m serving them in 24 hours from now. How should I store them?






    1. Airtight at room temperature or in the refrigerator. I usually keep them at room temp though as long as I know they’re going to get eaten!

  6. I absolutely love these I have literally eaten a whole pan full more than one time. I was wondering if I wanted to half the recipe if you had a recommendation in terms of the egg. Could I mix it and use half or should I just still use 1 egg






  7. Looove this recipe! I have made this twice, the 2nd time making a double batch…I typically have had a smidge of frosting leftover, but, I don’t mind as it is SO yummy it is a tiny guilty treat on it’s own!! Thank you SO much for sharing this!






  8. When your instructions for scaling up this recipe came up all three listed an 8×8 pan for baking. I’m not sure a tripled recipe would fit. Other than that this looks great. I was going to scale it up for a family reunion.
