Chocolate Banana Brownies {Vegan Options Too}


Have you ever found one or maybe five of these sad bananas on your counter? Yep, me too! Last night I was cleaning up after dinner and saw that I had 5 lonely, aging and browning bananas sitting all by themselves. I hate to waste bananas. You too? Anyways, I was in the mood for something chocolaty that I could quickly throw together. I thought about making my favorite chocolate chip banana bread, but I wanted something with even MORE chocolate. Brownies! I also wanted to use up those sad bananas. And that is where these Chocolate Banana Brownies came from…


Sad huh? Poor, poor banana! These are also vegan. Not the banana silly although that is too, but the brownies! I make all of my sweets without any animal products so that my oldest can eat it too. I know not everyone cooks/bakes this way so I’ve also included instructions to make them the conventional way… We really like the taste of them vegan, even better than how we used to make them non-vegan… 


Vegan Chocolate Banana Brownies


  • 4 very ripe bananas
  • 3/4 cup of vegan butter {or your choice of fat}
  • 1 cup of vegan sugar {or light brown sugar}
  • 1 tbs of cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 2 egg substitutes {or 2 eggs}
  • 1 3/4 cups of flour
  • 1 tbs of baking powder
  • 1 cup of vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/4 tsp of salt


  1. Melt butter and chocolate chips on low heat. Let cool.
  2. Mix all ingredients and then add the melted chocolate.
  3. Pour into a 8×8 pan.
  4. Cook at 325 degrees for 30-45 min or until a tooth pick comes out clean from the middle.
  5. Makes 16 brownie squares.




After they cool cut them into squares and watch them disappear before your eyes.

    Love this idea! I hate buying bananas because of this happening and not always wanting bread. I do always want chocolate!
    Do you taste the banana very much?

    • Heather says:

      With 4 bananas in it you do taste them… it’s a good taste though they work perfectly with the chocolate. If you want more less of a banana taste try putting just 2 in and substituting apple sauce for the other 2. I’m thinking 1 cup of apple sauce. Let me know how it tastes if you try it :-)

    Such a great idea! Of course, with my husband around, there are never any extra bananas around the house 😉

  • […] was so excited when I saw that there were 2 tiny squares left of my chocolate banana brownies that I wanted to grab them and eat them right away… but they were really small and I knew […]
