    • Nonstick cooking spray
    • Whisk
    • Medium bowl
    • Medium microwave-safe bowl


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13×9-inch baking pan with nonstick spray. Prepare brownie batter according to packaged directions using 2 eggs, oil, and water; set aside.

    2. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl; set aside. Whisk remaining 1 egg in a large bowl; stir in mashed bananas, melted butter, sour cream, and vanilla. Add flour mixture; stir just until combined.

    3. Dollop half of the banana batter, by the spoonful, onto the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Pour brownie batter around the banana batter. Dollop remaining banana batter over the top, allowing some brownie batter to show. Gently swirl batters with tip of knife.
