    55 min

    Rich and fudgy, but by adding oats they are ever so slightly healthier than your standard brownie!

    My version was with 3 bananas, no applesauce, 1 cup all purpose flour instead of wheat flour, and a little extra oats because my mix was runny. It turned out good.  -  24 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    BEWARE OF BREAKING TEETH! This recipe will make a chocolate concoction that is dry and hard-as-bricks. Recipe is not tested--total waste of time and energy to make. Since I really like the concept of oatmeal, applesauce, bananas with chocolate cake, I modified the recipe so that the product has a soft, moist cake-like consistency. Plus, you can actually taste the applesauce and bananas—yum! Below is my modified recipe. Ingredients 1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats 1 cup brown sugar 2/3 cup whole wheat flour 2/3 cup cocoa powder 1/3 cup all-purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 2 bananas 2 eggs 1/2 cup butter (melted) 1 cup milk 3/4 cup applesauce 2 tablespoons vanilla extract 3/4 cup chocolate and white chocolate chips  -  26 Feb 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
