Why we love this recipe:
→ These brownies are a delicious snack to keep on hand and they fit the 30% protein rule! so you can have your guilt-free chocolate dessert and your gains too.
→ One brownie contains 13.3 grams of protein, 23.7 grams of carbs and just 2.6 grams of fat, making this a nice post workout snack option.
→ These are just so easy to make, just blend all the ingredients together, pour and bake.
→ The recipe is quite forgiving, even if you don't have a chocolate flavored pea or whey powder, you can use flavors like vanilla, caramel, or try any other flavor you think you may enjoy (although, we don't recommend using fruit flavored protein powders for this recipe) and it would still come out chocolaty, thanks to the cocoa powder power!

What you will need (for 6 Servings) ↓
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup prunes (or medjool dates)
- 1/2 cup chocolate pea protein powder (or brown rice protein powder, or other veggie protein blend)
- 1 scoop whey protein powder
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup liquid egg whites + 2 tbsp
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
Prep Time: 5 min. Cook Time: 22 minutes or less.
- 1Preheat oven to 325°F.
- 2Using a blender or food processor, blend all the ingredients together.
- 3Bake your batter in a small (lightly greased) brownie pan (8"x 8" or 9" x 9") until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 20-22 minutes, but check before then! the brownies are much tastier under-baked than overdone.
- 4Let the brownies cool completely before cutting.
* Note: we like to double the recipe and use a glass 7 x 11 baking dish, the brownies come out much thicker and slightly under-baked in the center, which gives them a mousse-like consistency that is quite delicious!
