Chunky Monkey Brownies

Recently I was sitting here looking at bananas that need to be used up and I wanted to do something with them other then banana bread. So I came up with the idea of adding them to my brownies to make Chunky Monkey Brownie. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

What You Need:
3 ripe bananas smashed
1 cup melted butter (2 sticks)
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 eggs
3/4 cup natural cocoa (any cocoa would work)
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped walnuts

What You Do:
Preheat your oven to 350*F. Grease a 9x13x2 in baking pan. 

Place butter in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave at Medium power (50%0 for 2 -2 1/2 minutes or until melted. Stir in the sugar and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add cocoa, beat until well blended. Add smashed bananas mixing well. Add flour, baking powder and salt, beat well. Stir in the walnuts. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.
