I love it when a plan comes together – like wanting to make a dessert for a party the next day and having every ingredient I need already in my kitchen, including 4 ripe bananas that probably would have otherwise made it to the garbage.  Love it!

Chocolate Banana Crumble

4 ripe bananas, sliced

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

4 tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature

1/2 cup flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/3 chopped pecans

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp milk


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9x9x2 baking pan with nonstick spray.

In a bowl, combine the banana slices, chocolate chips, brown sugar and 2 tbsp of the softened butter.  Spread evenly into the prepared pan.


In another bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients (including the remaining 2 tbsp of butter) – I used my fingers. The mixture will be moist, a little sticky, and crumbly.  Spread the topping over the banana mixture.  Bake for about 20 minutes.  Let cool.  Serve with a dollop of whipped cream on top.

Baked and ready to eat!

*I’ll take a picture of this when I slice into it tomorrow, and update the post.
