Brownie Banana Bread

This 4 ingredient Brownie Banana Bread is the perfect recipe when you want to bake something sweet with just a few simple ingredients.

I debated the name of this recipe multiple times.

Is it a Chocolate Banana Bread?

Or maybe it’s a Banana Bread Brownie Recipe?

Irresistible Banana Bread Brownies would fit if this was made in a square pan. But it’s not.

This is a simple recipe for banana bread filled with the moistness of a brownie and the ability to satisfy your next chocolate fix. You’ll not only love how quick it is to make but also how yummy the leftover bread is. 

Frequently Asked Questions about this recipe:

Can I make this recipe gluten-free?

Yes! Gluten-free brownie mixes are top-notch, for the most part. I personally prefer King Arthur Flour’s Gluten-Free Brownie Mix and ALDI’s Gluten-Free Brownie Mix.

Why do you only coat the bottom of the pan with cooking spray in this Brownie Banana Bread recipe?

Some recipes need the ability to “crawl” up the side of the pan as it bakes. This is one of those recipes. Greasing the sides of the pan would make it more difficult for this bread to rise.

This 4 ingredient Brownie Banana Bread is the perfect recipe when you’re wanting to bake something sweet with simple ingredients.


  • Cooking spray
  • 2 large overripe bananas
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil, melted butter or melted coconut oil
  • 1 (16-oz.) pkg. brownie mix


  1. Pre heat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a 9-inch loaf pan with parchment paper, and coat bottom of the pan with cooking spray.
  2. Place bananas in a large bowl, and mash well with a fork. Add eggs and oil to mashed bananas; beat with an electric mixer until combined. Add brownie mix, and beat just until smooth. Spoon banana bread batter into prepared pan with a rubber spatula.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, about 1 hour, 15 minutes. Let cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove from pan, and cool to room temperature on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container or wrap in plastic wrap.


*This bread would be delicious served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a sprinkle of chocolate chips.
