15 MIN Prep Time
35 MIN Cook Time
16 Servings

Ingredients

  • 4 very ripe bananas
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter or vegetable oil of choice
  • 6 ounces non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or paste
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups gluten free flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

For the Icing:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk of choice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla or vanilla paste

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Lightly oil 8 x 8 square pan.
3. Mash bananas with fork or potato masher until creamy in medium size bowl.
4. Add in sugar, butter or oil, yogurt, vanilla and eggs until blended.
5. Slowly add in flour and baking soda.
6. Fold in walnuts.
7. Pour mixture into prepared pan and bake for about 35 minutes. {You may want to cover with tin foil for the last 10 minutes of cooking to avoid over browning.}
8. Prepare Icing: Brown butter in small saucepan over medium heat. Watching carefully and moving pan to move butter around while cooking. Remove from heat when butter is lightly browned.
9. Let butter cool just a little, about 2-3 minutes.
10. Stir in confectioner's sugar, milk and vanilla, blending until creamy with a fork, whisk or use electric beaters. (I used a whisk).
11. Spread icing over warm brownies as it spreads easier. Important Note: Greek Yogurt does contain lactose, however spread throughout the recipe should not be sufficient to cause symptoms of lactose intolerance for most people. Lactose free yogurt can be substituted, if desired.
