Breakfast Brownies

Breakfast Brownies


Breakfast brownies are a healthier version of your favorite treat. Whole wheat flour, bran cereal & pecans help give you energy for your day!


  • ⅓ cup bran cereal
  • ¼ cup milk or juice
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder, sifted if clumped together
  • ¼ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup finely chopped pecans
  • ⅓ cup mini chocolate chips


  1. Set oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 8×8 inch pan with non-stick spray and set aside. In a small bowl, add bran cereal and milk/juice. Stir together and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add butter and sugar. Mix on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs and mix well, being sure to scrape the sides of the bowl with a rubber scraper. Add cocoa powder, flour and salt. Mix until combined. Stir in soaked bran cereal, pecans and mini chocolate chips. Mix until well-combined. Transfer brownie batter into the prepared pan. Smooth the top.
  3. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Set aside to cool completely before cutting. Store in an airtight container.
