Banana Blondies

 I made these to take to Sunday School a few weeks ago.  They were very well liked.   I doubled the recipe and made them in a 9 x 13 pan.  Cooking time stayed the same.
Banana Blondies
½ cup butter, melted and if desired browned
1 cup light brown sugar
1 egg
1½ tsp vanilla
¼ tsp salt
1 cup flour
½ cup mashed banana (1 medium banana)
Brown Sugar Frosting
¼ cup butter
½ cup light brown sugar
2 Tbsp milk
1 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350°. Line an 8x8 baking dish with foil and spray with cooking spray. Set aside

In bowl of stand mixer combine melted (or browned) butter and sugar. Mix until combined. Add in egg and vanilla and continue mixing until incorporated. Stir in salt, flour and banana until batter is smooth and even. Spread in prepared pan.

Bake for 25-30 minutes until center is set. Transfer pan to wire rack to cool.

Frost the blondies when they are mostly cooled.

Brown Sugar Frosting
In a medium saucepan melt butter. Add brown sugar and milk and stir until mixture comes to just a boil. Remove from heat, allow to cool for 5 minutes.

Stir in powdered sugar with a whisk.

Spread on top of blondies and allow frosting to set and blondies to cool completely before cutting into squares.

If you choose to brown the butter, melt butter in saucepan and continue cooking, once it's melted by swirling the butter in the pan until butter reaches a deep golden brown color.
