Chocolate Banana Brownies

I’m on a vaaaacaaaaation *dances*

Tonight’s post is brought to you by the trusted queue feature and Foodgawker, who posted this recipe on their Facebook and I was like “hey, I have those ingredients” and therefore decided to hit the kitchen and try it out.

Results!? Delicious. My brother took all 3 of his portions and ate them in one sitting. My dad huffed down 2 pieces in under a minute (I swear to god) and my mom and I had to hide our remaining portions from the wildebeests in our house.


  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (I used 1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup applesauce (no sugar added)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided (I used Ghirardelli)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray 8×8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Mash bananas in a medium size bowl.
  4. Stir in sugars, applesauce, water, and vinegar until thoroughly combined.
  5. Stir in flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt just until combined.
  6. Fold in 1/3 cup of chocolate chips.
  7. Pour batter into prepared dish.
  8. Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips on top.
  9. Bake for 33-37 minutes or until toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean. (I baked for 35 mins)
  10. Let cool, slice and serve.
