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?

Yummy.  :D I can't wait to try this recipe. I'm going to use applesauce instead of banana, and maybe no oil. Thanks.

(I should add I didn't add any chocolate to the pumpkin version.)  :)

Try a fall version of this recipe: add pumpkin (perhaps a bit over 1/2 c?) instead of banana and oil,, enough water to make it battery-like, and a little cinnamon. I usded sugar sub. and it was light and delicious, not nearly as heavy as the chocolate version.  If you don't let it cook the entire time, you get pumpkin pudding.

Whole Foods 365 brand semi-sweet choc chips are vegan.  And they are cheap.  $1.69/bag.

Oh. My. God.

These were amazing. I can't believe I made them in the microwave. I used whole wheat flour, a really ripe banana. and olive oil. I only made half the recipe because I was afaraid I wouldn't be able to stop eating it. Good thing too, because I ate the whole thing before it could completely cool off. I spread some peanut butter on it at the end too, which was divine.

Thank you so much for this recipe. It is the most amazing, coolest brownie recipe in existence.  :D ;D

:) This recipe is awesome! The perfect thing for a chocolate fix, ooey, gooey, delicious!
BUT there are some things that need changing, like olive oil to canola oil, cause olive oil has such a strong flavor, it's kinda gross...
I hate bananas, so i omitted them.
And i ended up omitting the oil completely, in place of the oil and the nana, i used 4 oz (one small container) or applesauce (unsweetened). Helped with binding and rising, and no banana or olive tree taste!
Sprinkle choc chips on top! OH SO GOOD!  ::)

I was seriously craving carbs and chocolate, preferably together so I made these. Very easy  and in 4 1/2 minutes I was biting into a very dense chocolatey brownie. I agree with other posters that you could really taste the banana but I didn't really mind. It hit the spot nicely. Thanks!

Yummm. My roommate and I sat down to this saying, 'oh, this looks good now, I hope it reheats well' and of course, ate the whole darn thing at once!!!  I added slightly less sugar and no chocolate chips.  These had a funky texture to me- something like baked playdough- I would add a little more liquid next time.
