Microwave Brownies

What you need: 

1 banana, mashed
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
nonstick spray
chocolate chips, to taste

What you do: 

1. Grease a small microwave safe dish. In a bowl, mix together the banana, sugar, olive oil, and vanilla.
2. Stir in the flour, cocoa, and salt. Put prepared dish. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.
3. Microwave on high for 4 to 5 minutes (depending on how gooey you like them). Adjust the cooking time based on the power of your microwave.
Great for late night studying Snacks. You could probably even add some instant coffee to them before you cook them.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

These are great for a quick chocolate fix to satisfy your sweet tooth immediately...otherwise, regular brownies in the oven are of course better.  Not to down play this recipe, these were still really good, just not quite the brownies you'd take to a potluck or serve to guests.  I didn't want a banana taste, so used applesauce instead.  And I subbed canola oil for the olive.

I've made this a few times now and i like it best w/o banana and instead using Ener-G egg replacer (1 egg's worth) and a small amount of water (approx 1/6 cup ). I've made it w/ both banana or apple sauce and don't like the additional flavor those things give it.  Last time I made this I topped it off with Mocha Almond Fudge soy dream ice cream, so good!!

i ate some last night when it was hot out of the microwave and it was too sweet and gave me a tummache.

aaw, I'm sorry it upset your stomach shantastic.. :( Although I'm not reviewing the recipe as I'm yet to try it, I had to tell you "tummache" is quite possibly the cutest term to describe abdominal discomfort I've ever heard. Love it, hehe... tummache is now a part of my newly expanded vocabulary!!

Great recipe, but it's even better if you pour Hershey's chocolate syrup (it's vegan, surprisingly) and sprinkles on top when it comes out of the microwave.

These brownies are sooo good.  I am eating some right now and it's just what I needed.  I'm feeling really bad today and it's cold and raining outside.  The only other thing that would make me feel better, is some Purely Decacent vanilla to go with these brownies.

are they gewwy?
i like gewwwy .

Well, I think they were gooey in an odd sort of way..I cooked mine for about 6 mins, like I said, b/c I wanted them to be fairly cooked. My husband had a bit of a problem with the "squishiness."  So, maybe they would be perfect for you! I decided that they might be better with the chocolate chips mixed into the batter..since those were the best part. ; )

I've definitely made better vegan brownies..but these weren't bad for taking less than 10 minutes. I used about 1/2 c applesauce and about a tbs of canola oil. I just "eyeballed" all of the ingredients...and had to add a little soy milk for a better consistency. I ended up microwaving them for about 6 minutes. I don't think they would be very good at all without the chocolate chips. Good for an emergency chocolate craving though! ; )
