i spent some time this a.m. slicing bananas. I ran out of the ones i had in the car. the kids love to munch on them. and it's definitely better than fast food. i don't like it when they start getting spotted. i would have made banana pudding but didn't have the cookies. (guess i could have made them..............but naaah...............did i say they were headed for the dehydrator?

Red Velvet Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies
(Adapted from Sweet as Sugar Cookies)
Red Velvet Layer:
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
Pinch kosher salt
1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon red food coloring
Cream Cheese Layer:
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8 by 8-inch baking pan, and set aside.
Brownie layer: Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt and set aside.
Add softened butter to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachmend. Add the sugar and beat until well-combined. Beat in the eggs, vinegar, vanilla, extract, and food coloring, making sure to mix completely before each addition. Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.
Cream cheese layer: In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla until smooth. Gently spread the cream cheese layer on top of the brownie batter in the pan. Using a skewer or the tip of a knife, drag the tip through the cream cheese mixture to create a swirl pattern. Bake the brownies for about 30 minutes until set. Remove to a cooling rack and allow them to cool completely before cutting.
