Chocolate Banana Bourbon Fudge Brownies with Shredded Coconut & Peanut Butter Swirl

You can do more than make banana bread when you’ve got a bunch of overripe bananas (or plantains). Try making these simple, but flavor-packed brownies instead! The bananas make the brownies super moist and fudge-like and, with a little bourbon flavor, chocolate, coconut, and peanut butter, you really can’t go wrong.

  • 3 overripe bananas
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bourbon extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup smooth peanut butter, lightly melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Use about a tbsp of the melted butter to grease your baking tray. (I used a 9×9 inch tray). Now take about a tbsp of cocoa powder and put it into the baking tray, shaking it in the tray until it evenly dusts the entire bottom of the tray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mash the bananas until they are smooth.
  3. Once the bananas are smooth, whisk in the sugar, melted butter, and vanilla bourbon. (Save about a tbsp of butter to grease your baking tray).
  4. Now, mix in the flour, salt, shredded coconut, and cocoa powder. Make sure everything is evenly mixed.
  5. Pour the batter into your baking dish and make sure it’s leveled evenly. Now, with the baking tray facing horizontally, making 4-5 vertical lines of peanut butter in the batter. You don’t need to pour a ton of peanut butter, just enough to make a solid, vertical line down the batter. I poured my lines 1 inch from the sides and then 2 inches in between.
  6. Once your peanut butter lines are done, use a butter knife (or I used a metal chopstick) to swirl the peanut butter. I like to run my knife through the batter/peanut butter from left to right, then up to down. Swirl until you’re happy with the look J
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the edges crispy and the center becomes firm. Cut into squares and enjoy!
