ooey gooey choc brownie

I made myself a promise this Christmas that we would cut back on food waste as much as possible. Having been quite successful in this over the years, I was determined to make use of every last scrap. Today I was faced with finding something to do with 3 overripe, going brown bananas. Now I know that some people like to eat them like that, but in our house nobody does.

With the overindulgence of Christmas I didn't really want to make anything too calorific, so I came up with my healthy(ish) low fat take on the chocolate brownie. Here is the finished product ! Apologies for the quality of the picture but I only had my phone to hand.

INGREDIENTS

  • 5tbsp cocoa
  • 1tbsp caster sugar
  • 5tbsp skimmed milk or 4tbsp skimmed milk & 1tbsp rum
  • 3 overripe small or 2 overripe large bananas - mashed
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cups wholemeal plain flour
  • 2/3 cups oatmeal or oats which you have 'pulverised' in food processor
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C, or 160 if fan assisted.
  2. Grease 8" square cake tin.
  3. Mix together thoroughly cocoa, caster sugar and milk/rum.
  4. Beat eggs until frothy, mix in cocoa mixture.
  5. Add bananas, brown sugar and vanilla, mix well.
  6. Fold in flour, baking powder and oatmeal gently, until a few specs are still visible.
  7. Pour into cake tin.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes until a skewer comes out clean (unless you hit a banana in which case it will still look gooey). Cool for about 10 minutes and then cut into squares. ENJOY !
