How To Make Crockpot Banana Brownies
To make this delicious crockpot dessert, you will need:
- non-fat Greek yogurt
- baking soda
- and lots of chocolate chips!
Once your ingredients are gathered, cream together the butter and sugar. Next, mash the bananas and mix them in with your butter/sugar mixture. Stir in vanilla, baking soda, salt and flour and mix well. Lastly add in your chocolate chips. Dump this whole mixture in your slow cooker and go read a book while your crockpot works it's magic!
Serving This Awesome Slow Cooker Dessert
When brownies are finished cooking, remove slow cooker vessel from heating element and allow to fully cool and set prior to cutting into brownie sized squares (for me a "brownie sized" serving = jumbo!). If you can't wait that long, spoon out warm brownies servings into bowls and top with vanilla ice cream!
Yummy Brownie Hints and Hacks
- Any chocolate chips will do, but milk chocolate chips are especially decadent!
- Chocolate chips will sink to the bottom during cooking...yum!
- This is a great way to use up over ripe bananas. If you still have some brown bananas left after you make this awesome treat, Boozy Banana Topping is another great way to use them up!
- you will know your dish is done with you can insert a toothpick into the center and it comes out clean.
- If your slow cooker cooks unevenly (as some of mine do) lifting your slow cooker pot out of the heating element and rotating it 180 degrees before putting it back in will help to even things out. I try to do this about half way through the cooking time. Just beware that the pot will be HOT! Pot holders are a must!
- Although any vanilla extract will work, there is just something about the flavor of pure vanilla extract and the amazing flavor it adds. Here is a great one
- I always recommend the use of a slow cooker liner. This is, of course, an optional step. I like to purchase my liners in bulk for a less expensive per-piece price. Here are the liners I buy.
- In the market for a new slow cooker? Here is the one I am currently lusting after.
