Breakfast Brownies

Breakfast Brownies

If you like my giant breakfast cookies you’ll love these chewy brownies. Moist prunes are key to keeping these bars moist. If you can't find Sunsweet in a can you can pour boiling water over dried prunes in a bowl, cover and let stand for 15 minutes. Drain and chop. And if you can’t find All Bran use another high fiber cereal.

    is there any way dates would work in this recipe?

    OK its me again. Finally made these using 1/2 cup of wheat bran instead of all bran cereal and all white sugar because I had run out of brown. I also added more choc chips. Turned out well! My 3 yr old son and 11 mth daughter loved it too! Thanks again jenny! You are amazing!!

    Would I be able to sub wheat bran or five grain granola for all bran cereal and also would I be able to use only white sugar or would that alter the texture too much?

  4. CB

    I have made these twice. I did make some changes. I used Stevia instead of white sugar and I replaced the oil with peanut butter and added in 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. I also used quick oats instead of rolled.

  5. Charlotte

    can I increase the quantity of oats to 1 1/2 cups and omit the all bran cereal?

    • Jenny

      I have never made them that way so I can only guess. The bran cereal is very fibrous so the batter may be a little soft and also, you might not need all the oil. I use 1/2 cup because the bran cereal is so dry. I guess you’ll just have to try and see…

    Hi Jenny, I’m using dried prunes, so I hope this isn’t a stupid question, but once the water is boiling and the prunes are being soaked in them, do I leave the water boiling for the entire 15 minute period?

    • Jenny

      No, you put the prunes in a bowl and pour the boiling water on them and just let them stand in the bowl, covered, so they soak up the hot water. After 15 minutes, drain them and chop.

    Jenny, I remember when u had a t.v. show and u said that u speak Hebrew because u lived in Israel. Do u have any recipe that u can recommend?

    • Jenny

      You may have me confused with someone else. I do not speak Hebrew and never lived in Israel. I grew up in Canada and spoke Polish.
