Chocolate Chip Banana Brownies.

I bet you weren’t expecting a recipe out of me today!  As much fun as I have talking about babies all day long, I do assure you that I plan to start posting recipes more regularly again now that I’m feeling better and back in the kitchen.  Perhaps it will be fun to see how my recipes evolve as my pregnancy continues!

This latest recipe was inspired by the last two blackened bananas hanging out in our fruit bowl.  I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the result was exactly what I was hoping for!

Chocolate Chip Banana Brownies

IMG_8948 (640x427)

(Print this recipe!)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup organic cane sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1.5 cups soy milk (or other milk)
  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

IMG_8919 (640x420)

Instructions:  The thing I love about baking is that the instructions are almost always as simple as – mix dry, mix wet, add wet to dry, and bake.  This recipe is no exception, but I will go through the steps with you anyways just for fun!

Casey had a conference call this afternoon, so I was baking with both dogs locked in the kitchen with me.  They were highly intrigued by what I was doing…

IMG_8921 (640x427)

Start by combining both flours, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and sea salt in a large mixing bowl.

IMG_8923 (640x427)

In a second (smaller) bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork…

IMG_8924 (640x426)

IMG_8926 (640x426)

And then add the soy milk and vanilla.  I have started using soy milk recently instead of almond milk, because being pregnant I am trying to sneak in as much extra protein as I can.  I really like this organic unsweetened soy milk from Silk!

IMG_8927 (427x640)

Combine the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients…

IMG_8930 (640x427)

And NEVER turn your back on your mixing bowl.

IMG_8931 (427x640)

Once all of the dry ingredients are incorporated, fold in 1/2 cup chocolate chips.  I used traditional Nestle for mine, but by using vegan chocolate chips this recipe will be entirely vegan!

IMG_8933 (640x427)

Did I tell you to preheat the oven to 350 degrees yet?  Whoops – do that now.  Grease a 9×13 baking dish, and spread the brownie batter evenly into the bottom of the pan.

IMG_8935 (640x427)

Make sure you use the 9×13 long dish, or else you will need to adjust your cooking time for anything smaller (since brownies will be thicker!).

IMG_8938 (640x427)

Bake in the oven for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.

IMG_8940 (640x427)

Wait 10 minutes and allow brownies to cool before slicing.

IMG_8941 (427x640)

Slice into 16 rectangles – each will be around 17o calories of dense chocolatey goodness, with only 3 grams of fat!

IMG_8943 (640x427)

Serve with a cool glass of milk, and a friend to enjoy it with. 

IMG_8944 (640x424)

I wasn’t sure how these would turn out since I’ve never made vegan brownies before.  I was worried that they would be too cakey, which was NOT what I wanted.  If I wanted cakey – I would have made cake!  I was thrilled to discover that these were moist, dense, and exactly what I was hoping for…

IMG_8948 (640x427)

The chocolate chips and hunks of banana took it to the next level.

IMG_8949 (640x427)

Who says vegan baking has to by dry and crumbly?

IMG_8951 (427x640)

Only one thing left to do… DUNK!

IMG_8952 (410x640)  IMG_8953 (407x640)  IMG_8955 (397x640)

Perfection.

IMG_8957 (640x412)

Enjoy!

Yum!! These look great. I’ve been feeling the urge to bake lately so maybe I’ll give these a try! I have to wait a couple days for my bananas to reeeeeally ripen though. (I’m just catching up on old posts so I will say all my comments here. Yay on baby nectarine and no more vomit-a-thons! I love the Baby Garnish onesie!)

Ugh, I have been craving chocolate all day! I bought a few extra bananas this week to use in baking and they are just a few days away from ready…just in time for weekend baking…I will surely use them to test out this recipe! I love theat these have hunk of bananas and melty chocolate, texture bonus!

P.s…LOVE the photo of Huey formulating his plan to swipe some baked goodness!!!

Heidi @ Food Doodles     at 5:31 pm

Wow those looks amazing! Love the ingredients list, but I might sub all whole wheat flour, I don’t mind my goodies dense in a whole grain way. That might make me really weird, but oh well. I have got to try these soon. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe :D

I am sure the WW flour would be great as well!

OH MAN THESE LOOKS AMAZING!! I just so happen to have 2 pretty brown bananas in my kitchen right now whewhooo!

Side note: A few weeks ago(maybe months) you posted about a journal you found at a card shop. I wrote down the name but cant find it now and thought it would be a great gift for friends. Can you help me out… :)

This recipe couldn’t have come at a better time! I have some ripe bananas I need to bake with. I think I might sub walnuts for chocolate chips to make it entirely vegan. Thank you, thank you!

[Reply]

Reading (and chickens)     at 5:49 pm

Oh, I just started running again and need caaaaarbs. Yum.

Out of curiousity, would it be a big, huge pain in the butt to post your flour recipes with weights? I’m allergic to wheat and like the gluten free girl said–substituting by weight is the easiest way to bake! If it’s too much trouble, no problem. I can figure it out! :)

[Reply]

I could try, but I haven’t really measured that way before. I wouldn’t want to screw it up! I will give it a try next time and see how it goes. :)

Definitely was looking for a way to use my last three bananas without having to toss them. Count it!
PS- quick question: would you say wheat flour would work instead of wheat pastry flour?

Yep, WW will work too!

Dense brownies all the way. I love how you didn’t have to use a flax egg or anything. Bananas do wonders in chocolate baked goods.

Hey Emily. I’ve been wondering about soy for a while. I know there are studies out that show how dangerous processed soy can be when it comes to tumor growth. Even my grandmother’s oncologist said that drinking soy milk is like drinking arsenic. I understand your point about getting extra protein, but do you get concerned when it comes to drinking soy, eating tofu and veggie burgers? I recently elliminated meat from my diet and have been consulting different sources.

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

I don’t eat particular processed soy produced, like a lot of veggie burgers or fake meats. The only ones I purchase are soy free, and I also avoid soy lecithin in other products. I do believe soy is fine in small amounts, particularly when in forms like edamame, tofu, tempeh, etc. There is conflicting research on dangers of soy, and I also think you can pretty much find a study to support anything you’re looking for these days. That’s just my personal take on it. I don’t drink a LOT of milk, and the soy milk I have started drinking has a short ingredient list and is all organic. I try to be really careful and pick and choose the soy products that make me feel comfortable!

[Reply]

I completely agree. Just looking for feedback from a long time vegetarian. Thanks for replying!

Thanks for the recipe!! I found your blog a few weeks ago and have really enjoyed it…very inspirational! I recently cut dairy from my diet and have been wanting something sweet and chocolate-y. I’m nursing my 7 month old son and he may have a milk/soy protein intolerance so I’m eliminating dairy to see if that is the culprit that is making him so miserable :(. Thanks again, I’ll be making this tomorrow!

It has been fun reading about your pregnancy as well. Enjoy this time because it goes by verrrry fast!

Kristin     at 11:22 pm

So I have a question, can I use applesauce or something else in place of the bananas? While I love bananas I have food sensitivity and don’t eat them, which is sad since they are in so many vegan recipes :(

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

Yes, definitely try applesauce! You can also use oil (maybe 1/2 cup) but that would obviously change it nutritionally.

[Reply]

Lydia     at 11:29 pm

Any idea what the differences between regular and organic sugar are? I’ve been searching around just because I’m curious, but the results have been inconclusive. Thanks!

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

I just try to buy as much organic food as possible, especially when it’s processed. I believe the organic sugar has less bleaching.

[Reply]

Jenn Reply:

Just an fyi – organic sugar is not processed in the way that most regular sugar is, which includes being ground up with animal bones, therefore organic sugar is guaranteed vegan….gross, right?!

Emily Malone Reply:

I do appreciate your concern. I have done my fair share of research on soy too, and I believe it is fine in small, relatively unprocessed amounts. Especially when organic. I am most definitely thinking about the health of my baby, and trying to get as much healthy protein as possible!

[Reply]

S @ extremebalance.net/blog     at 2:33 am

1 cup feels like a lot of sugar. Is there anything, chemically speaking, that changes if you cut that in half? Especially using sweetened chocolate chips, I’m just wondering if anything more than the taste is changed…

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

You can cut some out if you prefer, but they aren’t really overly sweet. They are also cut into 16 large brownies, so the 1 cup is well distributed – about 1 tbsp of sugar in each. Wouldn’t change anything but taste, but I’m afraid they might get pretty bitter with the unsweetened cocoa powder.

Good luck with the move to Seattle…my brother lives there and absolutely LOVES it. When I went to visit we went to Pike’s Place every day…trust me, you won’t be missing the Old Town market for too long! Oh, and good luck with the baby! So exciting!

Love your blog, you have so many amazing recipes! I made these last night using all whole wheat flour, and subbed 1 tbsp of coconut oil for one of the bananas. I also added a bit more milk. They were really good!

I have made these a handful of times now for family get togethers and cookouts and they are always a hit!! I use vanilla almond milk and add a few extra chocolate chips and they are delicious! They are my new favorite sweet treat and I love sharing them knowing how relatively healthy they are. Thank you so much for the great recipe!!
