There is quite a lot of fruit in these easy chocolate brownies: bananas, prune puree and dried cherries. They combine amazingly well to make a rich and chewy brownie that both kids and adults will love.

Preheat oven to 350° F (180° C). Grease a 9-by-13-inch (23-by-32-cm) baking pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.
Combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Combine prune baby food, banana, oil and vanilla and stir into dry ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips and dried cherries and mix until evenly combined.
Spread mixture evenly into prepared pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Let cool fully before cutting. Makes about 16 chocolate banana brownies.
