to die for! I quarter the recipe, add a teaspon of peanut butter, a splash of soymilk (the batter seems really dry to me) then microwave it for three minutes.

perfect gooey brownies for one in FIVE MINUTES!  :)>>>



I didn't have any bananas or applesauce in the house, so I used frozen strawberries instead.  I just heated them in the microwave until they were soft enough to mash, and then mashed them up into something that resembled applesauce.  I also added egg replacer equal to one egg, because I figured strawberries probably don't bind things together as well as bananas or applesauce.  And I used whole wheat flour, because that's what I had.

The strawberriness was really good, I recommend it!


Food Lion brand chocolate chips are vegan!


This recipe is a godsend!


This has definetly become a staple in my diet, and  I wish I would have never stumbled upon it. I subbed the white flour for whole-wheat, the oil for applesauce, and cut out just a little bit of the sugar, and used Gharadelli chocolate chips. My batter is always very dry so I just add some chocolate soymilk and it works great. They have a very strong banana flavor if you use the whole one so if that isn't  your thing I would just use half. They also get more of that brownie texture if you let them sit out a few hours.


Had a serious chocolate craving last night and not much time so these really fit the bill.  Amazingly quick and easy and made alot IMO.  Cooked them in a pyrex pie plate and it was just the right size.  I did sub applesauce for the banana and added some coffee powder.  They seemed to taste even better this morning.  If I had more time I may have used one of the other brownie recipes but for a quick fix this recipe is great!


Ok, I'm officially addicted to this recipe.  I make it like, every night.  It's making me fat.
Thanks to the inventor of this magical dessert.


Just what my family needed! We save bananas in the freezer, but I'll bet our stock goes down quite a bit because of this winner. They were easy, tasty, and just as good the next day. Thanks! :)>>>


I just now made these. I wasn't as impressed as some others. These were just ok. It was more of a banana desert rather than brownies. The only chocolate I taste is the choc. chips. I added some lowfat soy milk to thin it out. The consistency is brownie-like, though. My husband thought it was alright, but not great. I probably won't make this again, but we will eat what I made tonight.


Woah.  This is WAY too good for something so easy and on-the-fly.  I subbed the banana with applesauce, peanut oil for the fat, and added a few splashes of almond milk to thin it out, and it turned out swell.  Agreed the chocolate chips sorta' make it, and definitely stick with a small dish or they end up flat and chewy, but they're great!  Peanut butter would be an awesome addition... next time!
