Banana & Mocha Chewy Brownies

Banana & Mocha Chewy Brownies

These Banana and Mocha Chewy Brownies are a great way to use up over ripe bananas and could almost be suitable for breakfast with their secret cereal ingredient.
Banana & Coffee Chewy Brownies

This recipe is one I use for brownies often now, because it is so easy and produces effortless brownies every time. These Banana and Mocha Chewy Brownies came about as a result of receiving my latest Degustabox UK delivery.

Having looked through the products inside it, I came across some Green & Black’s Velvet Edition 70% Cocoa and some Cheerios Oat Crisp cereal. 

Realising I also had an over ripe banana in my fruit bowl (which is a weekly occurance in my house!), I thought I would make some brownies with some coffee and chocolate, the banana, and instead of using walnuts, which works lovely in this type of brownie recipe, I thought I would experiment and add some Cheerios Oat Crisp Cereal.

Surprisingly, the cooked brownies worked out really well with the added secret cereal inside, they added a delicious chewiness to the baked goods. No one would suspect that there was actual cereal inside these brownies, nuts maybe, but never cereal.

In fact, these brownies could almost be a breakfast dish seeing as though they contain banana, coffee and cereal!
