Whole Wheat, Peanut Butter, Banana, and Chocolate Chip Breakfast Squares

August 30, 2012


I probably shouldn’t call these breakfast squares. It somehow seems wrong to eat chocolate chips for breakfast. But they were vegan chips, so maybe that helps? Probably not. I guess I’ll have to take solace in the fact that the ingredients contain mostly whole wheat, peanut butter and banana. Mmm.


Adapted from Peanut Butter, Honey and Banana Road Cake

3 ripe bananas, mashed (I typically use frozen bananas and thaw them)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg (for a vegan version use an egg substitute)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 heaping Tablespoon creamy peanut butter
2 Tablespoons canola oil
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips (regular or vegan)

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the bananas, sugar, egg, vanilla, oil, and peanut butter.


Add in the flour, baking powder, salt and chocolate chips. Blend until well mixed. Pour into a greased 8 x 8 pan. Bake for 15 minutes, until cooked through.

Serve warm with a cup of coffee or a glass of milk.


Slather with more peanut butter, if desired.


Fluffy, chewy, chocolatey cake- this is my kind of breakfast!


These are a breeze to travel with if you don’t have time to sit down and eat.

Really good! Bake time in my oven was closer to 1/2 hour. It’ll be a “make again.”
