Rich and fudgy, but (a little) healthier than standard brownies.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.

  • Mix oats, brown sugar, whole wheat flour, cocoa powder, all-purpose flour, and baking powder together in a large bowl; mash in banana. Stir in eggs, butter, milk, applesauce, and vanilla extract; mix thoroughly until batter is smooth. Pour into the baking pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute margarine for butter if preferred.

Mix the brownie batter with an electric mixer instead of by hand if you prefer.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

Perhaps I'm biased but I thought these were awesome.:) I've adjusted the recipe a bit since I first wrote it. Adding an extra banana and upping the milk to 3/4 cup (or even 1 cup) makes for moister more flavourful brownies. Read More

My version was with 3 bananas, no applesauce, 1 cup all purpose flour instead of wheat flour, and a little extra oats because my mix was runny. It turned out good. Read More

BEWARE OF BREAKING TEETH! This recipe will make a chocolate concoction that is dry and hard-as-bricks. Recipe is not tested--total waste of time and energy to make. Since I really like the concept of oatmeal applesauce bananas with chocolate cake I modified the recipe so that the product has a soft moist cake-like consistency. Plus you can actually taste the applesauce and bananas yum! Below is my modified recipe. Ingredients 1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats 1 cup brown sugar 2/3 cup whole wheat flour 2/3 cup cocoa powder 1/3 cup all-purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 2 bananas 2 eggs 1/2 cup butter (melted) 1 cup milk 3/4 cup applesauce 2 tablespoons vanilla extract 3/4 cup chocolate and white chocolate chips Read More
