Mouth-Watering Protein Brownies

Updated: Jul 8

Ohhhhh baby these are yummy protein brownies. My goal was to make brownies that are relatively high in protein and are a decent portion size (I want to feel like I ate a whole serving!). These are also a great treat to have if you're craving something sweet and want a boost of protein to go with it. You'll want these rockin' brownies all for yourself! Carbs: 14g Fat: 6.6g Protein: 11.6g. Omit the nuts and/or chocolate chips to drop the calorie and fat content if you'd like (my brownies must have walnuts in them. Just sayin').


Grab your favorite flavor of your favorite protein powder (choose your own adventure!) and let's get baking. I used my homemade protein powder blend and couldn't taste it - though I bet this would be awesome with a chocolate, toffee, or caramel flavored powder!

Mouth-Watering Protein Brownies

Makes 12 servings


Ingredients: 4 servings protein powder (about 1 cup)

2 ripe, peeled bananas (the riper the sweeter!)

4 Tbsp almond butter (or other nut butter), slightly warmed if hard

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/8 cup oats

2 tsp baking powder

2 Tbsp Cocoa powder

3 Tbsp Monk Fruit (you can substitute any sweetener here - Stevia, brown sugar, agave, etc.)

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup walnuts (or your favorite nut - optional)

1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)

1/2 cup plant-based milk*


*Whey protein powders will need less milk. Start with 1/4 cup and add as needed.


Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8x8 pan with olive oil.


Mash banana in a medium sized bowl.

Add almond butter and vanilla extract and mash until incorporated.

Add protein powder, oats, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and monk fruit. Mix.

Slowly add milk and stir until you create a batter consistency. The amount will depend on what type of protein powder you use.

Add walnuts and chocolate chips, reserving 1 Tbsp chocolate chips. Stir into batter.


Pour batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle reserved chocolate chips on top of batter and press gently into brownies. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let cool, then cut into 12 servings. Enjoy!
