  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
