Peanut Butter Protein Brownies

If you love chocolate (like we do), you’ll fall in love with this chocolate protein brownie recipe. No longer do you need to feel guilty after satisfying your sweet tooth.

While a conventional brownie recipe is loaded with sugar and fat, this one brings protein powder into the mix to balance out the macronutrients while helping stabilize blood glucose levels.

Regular flour has also been replaced with coconut flour, which adds more fiber to the dish while keeping the total carb count down. For healthy fats, you can thank the addition of peanut butter, which serves as the icing for the brownie.

Make this at home and you can indulge in style – all while improving your health at the same time.

INGREDIENTS


  • 4 tbsp. of coconut flour
  • ¼ cup of whey protein powder
  • ¾ cup of liquid egg whites
  • 3 tbsp. of cocoa powder
  • ½ tbsp. of vanilla stevia (or your sweetener of choice)
  • ½ cup of unsweetened almond milk

Icing:

  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 scoop vanilla casein
  • almond milk until desired consistency is reached

COOKING DIRECTIONS


  1. Blend together all ingredients in the brownies and then bake at 335 F for 30-40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
  2. Combine icing ingredients and then smear over top.
  3. Cut into 8 slices and serve immediately.
