Breakfast Brownies

Say Good Morning to Breakfast Brownies!

I love a healthy breakfast food that feels a little indulgent (helloooo, chocolate). Made without any oil or refined sugar, these scrumptious Breakfast Brownies provide a healthy, hearty alternative to a quick bowl of cereal. And they’re almost as convenient. A breeze to make, you just blend and bake! I love to make them the night before and warm them up before sending my family out into the day. Breakfast Brownies are the platonic ideal of breakfast treats!

And seeing your kids’ faces when you suggest brownies for breakfast — that’s a treat in and of itself! Alllll the cool mom points.

Breakfast Brownies

Blend and Bake

When I say these are a breeze, it really could not be easier. First, preheat your oven to 350°F and prep an 8×8-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray and parchment paper. Then, add all the ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.

If the batter gets too thick for your blender or food processor, add a few tablespoons of milk or water. Once well blended, pour the batter in to your prepared pan.

Bake for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let them cool completely before eating and enjoy! See? Easy breezy!

    1. Hi Maylene! The brownies would not bake up to the same texture without using a blender or food processor because the blending helps incorporate all of the ingredients into the batter so it bakes with a dense brownie-like texture. You could just stir all of the ingredients together well with an electric mixer or wooden spoon, but I would recommend using quick cooking oats and making sure you mash the bananas well. The batter will still bake up deliciously, it just won’t be as smooth and dense. Hope this helps. Enjoy!

  1. Hi. Do these taste like peanut/nut butter? (if so I’ll replace the yoghurt!) have a child who doesn’t like the taste but if I can mask the taste he doesn’t know the difference! 🙂 Thank you!

    1. Hi! They do have a slight peanut butter flavor, but the cocoa, honey and banana comes through so much that it’s hardly noticeable. I would recommend making the recipe as is and seeing if your child even notices. I have a son who claims he doesn’t like peanut butter or banana yet he’ll gobble these up. Enjoy!

    1. Hi Pat! Yes, I would recommend letting them cool completely and then wrapping each brownie tightly in plastic wrap and then placing them in a freezer-safe bag or container to store in the freezer for up to 3 months. Enjoy!
