YUM!! You guys will want to save this recipe for protein brownies.

Here’s the deal. Instead of making each brownie stuffed with protein powder and risking the taste, I decided to be modest and put 1 scoop in for the entire recipe. But you guys- It turned out even better than I imagined! Still heatlhy and SO YUMMY!!!

This recipe makes 9 thick brownies in a well greased 8X8 pan. While each brownie only has 5 grams of protein, you have my permission to eat SEVERAL.

What are the ingredients for protein brownies?

I’ve seen a variety of ways to use protein powder in brownies, with a variety of ingredients. I decided to play it safe and make some regular brownies with a few substitutions, and adding protein powder. This was the right choice!

I used self-rising flour, to ensure I would get the brownies to rise, without guessing on amounts of leavening agents.

And because I didn’t want to buy chocolate protein powder just for brownies (I don’t care for chocolate drinks), I decided to use vanilla protein powder and add cocoa powder. You can definitely use chocolate protein powder however. (see my favorite tasting protein powder here)

I used almond milk for mixing, because the vanilla unsweetened variety is only 30 calories per cup!

I also used sucralose instead of the monk fruit sugar that I’ve been baking with. I’ve been bugged recently by the fact that the monk fruit label says zero calories, yet 4 grams of carbs PER TEASPOON. So my macro counts always end up wacky. But the sucralose, really is zero calories AND zero carbs. And the baking capabilities are great! (I got mine at Walmart, but here it is on Amazon)

And then, I used homemade applesauce as a binder. This is the only part of the recipe that has sugar, but it’s fruit sugar, and very minimal.

Then I finished off the protein brownies with Lily’s sugar free chocolate chips sprinkled on top!

Who’s ready to try this!?!

  1. So delicious I used avocado instead of applesauce for healthy fat it was such a good addition!!

  2. 1 star
    These were the biggest waste of time and absolutely disgusting. It was like eating a tasteless piece of cardboard. Do not waste your time, there are better recipients out there.

  3. Instead of putting in Sucralose, cant I just put almond milk in ( sweetened) and dark chocolate chips?
