Spellchecker is trying to convince me that “chocolatey” is not a real word.

Stupid spellchecker. What does it know?

Chocolate Banana Breakfast Pudding:

Chocolate Banana Bread in a Bowl

Adapted from Banana Blender Cereal

  • 1 peeled banana, as ripe as possible
  • 1 cup flake cereal (such as bran or corn flakes)
  • scant 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • tiny pinch salt
  • 3/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • sweetener of choice, to taste
  • optional peanut butter, chocolate chips, walnuts, coconut, etc.

Blend all ingredients thoroughly. Garnish as desired. It will get much thicker if you refrigerate at least 10 minutes before eating. (In the summer months, I like to use a frozen banana.)

    Hi Katie! I was just wondering if you would mind sharing the brand of cereal that you prefer for the recipes like this. Thanks! 🙂

  2. Candice says

    I’ve made your breakfast cookie dough before, I’ll have to try this one with the added chocolate, couldn’t hurt right? 😀
    I love all sweet breakfast foods, its hard to pick a favorite, but lately I’ve been stuck on cinnamon-type things (perhaps because fall is in the air!). I really wanted to make your carrot cake waffle this morning, but I was out of carrots, so I settled on your “healthy waffle” recipe instead. Of course I threw in a bunch of cinnamon… yum!

  3. Dawn L says

    Katie – this is amazing!!! I had to make it as soon as I saw it. I did not have flake cereal on hand so I used an organic coconut chia granola cereal. It gave it a crunch, but I like that texture. Super yummy! Thanks for another wonderful way to eat chocolate and not feel guilty!

  4. Mia (Mia in Germany) says

    Great pictures and fun idea, to blend the cereal like that! Never thought of it either.
    BTW, hope your arm has healed by now and is well again!
    My favourite breakfast currently is a buckwheat muffin (unsweetened, kind of bread roll) with natural style peanut butter and pickles.

  5. Hailey says

    That looks delicious. I will have to try it. My current favorite breakfast is whole wheat toast and scrambled eggs with bell pepper, sea salt, pepper, turkey and cheese. Yum!

  6. Kim W says

    Thank You!
    Now I have three cck recipes to try for my birthday!
    1. Easy Cheesecake
    2. Birthday Cake
    2. Banana- bread in a bowl
    Happy Birthday to me!

    What gluten free cereals would work with this? The only thing that comes to mind is Rice Chex or Corn Chex, but I’m open to alternatives.

    • Heidi says

      I am going to try this tomorrow morning, and I plan to use my GF puffed brown rice. I might add a little more than the 1 cup to make up for the difference in density, but I don’t see any reason it wouldn’t work.

      • Jennifer says

        Let us know how it turns out. I don’t have any flaked cereal either, but I do have crispy rice cereal and I was curious to see if it would work

        • Heidi says

          It worked great! I used 1 1/4 cup of crispy brown rice cereal, then popped in the refrigerator for about 20 mins and it came out a thick pudding-like consistency (which I am assuming is what it should be).

  8. Kyla @ Two Cups Cacao says

    Oh my gosh. I’ve been thinking about breakfast, and I feel so lucky that I haven’t yet. Imagine it: I was about to have cold cereal! I’m going to make this today, thank you for posting!

    P.S: I simply do not believe these photos were photographed with an iPhone. That’s a lie!

  9. Sabrina says

    This just might be added to our list of favorite breakfasts! Currently, the favorite in our house (even among the kids and husband!) is your breakfast cookie dough. Somehow it is became known as blended cereal in our house and everyone looks forward to having it on the weekends when everyone is here together for breakfast.

  10. Heather @ Shards of Lavender says

    I use chocolatey all the time and it tries to correct it to chocolaty, which just looks odd even though it’s probably correct! I’ll be making this for my kids tomorrow; they love chocolate and bananas together…

  11. Karin says

    This looks so yummy, I was wondering it would work with these two changes as I never have milk or cereal in the house:

    * replace the milk with Yoghurt
    * replace cereal with Oats

    Would I need to make changes to the measurements?
    Thank you for the great reciepes, I love all the oat ones!

  12. Steph says

    Yum! It looks so thick and chocolatey 😉 I don’t know if my blender will make it look that smooth and creamy- but I do know that I’ll be making this for sure! Thanks! 😀

  13. Tom Loeza says

    That was so healthy and delicious. Great idea- I would never have thought to put cereal in a blender. And I think the frozen banana is a must. They’re so much better that way!

  14. Nicole says

    Thanks for sharing this! I’m getting my wisdom teeth pulled Friday and I need something to eat besides greek yogurt and chocolate frosting.

  15. Amber @ Slim Pickin's Kitchen says

    Oh my gosh, this looks so dang good! I also can’t believe these pics were taken with your iphone! That’s pretty incredible.
