These brownies are… weelll… they don’t really taste like brownies, but they are very useful to satisfy a chocolate craving or a banana craving… while being EXTREMELY healthy at the same time.

Texture: Chewy

Taste: Sweet

Health value: 4/5 (1 cup of sugar is ALOT… to me)

Oat Bran Brownie-Bar

adapted from “Secrets of Fat -free Baking”

 Makes 16 servings


Oat bran 1 cup
Cocoa powder 1/3 cup
Sugar 1 cup
Mashed bananas ¾ cup (about 1 ½ large)
Egg whites 3
Vanilla extract 1 tsp
Raisins 2 tbs
Baking powder (optional) ½ tsp
Semi- sweet Chocolate chips 1tbs











1. Combine the oat bran, cocoa, baking powder and sugar, and stir to mix well. Stir in remaining ingredients.

2. Use your CLEAN fingers or a pastry brush to spread some applesauce on the interior of the baking pan(s)

3. Using a sieve, or your fingers, sift/ sprinkle the cocoa powder to cover all the spread applesauce. (Applesauce ≈ butter & Cocoa powder ≈ flour)

5. Cool to room temperature, cut into squares and serve.
