Chocolate Almond Paleo Protein Brownies

If the title of this post doesn’t make your mouth water, maybe this will:

Finished Product

If there are two things I love in life, it’s a combination of chocolate and any nut butter.

I also love SIMPLE, QUICK recipes! This recipe includes only 7 ingredients:

ChocolateAlmondPaleoProteinBrownieIngredients

  • 3 1/2 scoops Protein Powder (any will work, chocolate is preferred)
  • 1/4 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 3 tbsp. Almond Butter
  • 1 1/2 cups Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 5 packets Truvia/Stevia (optional but definitely recommended)
  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1 large egg (not pictured. The chicken must have gotten too excited and rolled off somewhere ;-))

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a baking dish with nonstick spray. Unfortunately, I only had a round pan. I recommend using a square pan only so you can cut the brownies easier after they cool.

Start by mixing the almond milk, egg, almond butter, cocoa powder and Truvia in a bowl. It should have a batter-like consistency. Sitr in protein powder and baking soda. It should be pretty thick and look like this before you put it in the oven:

I baked this for exactly 28 minutes. If you use a larger pan, it will take a shorter amount of time. I recommend setting your timer for 15 minutes at first. Keep checking on the brownies — they’re done when you stick a toothpick in them & it comes out clean. Let cool for about 20 minutes and enjoy! 🙂

This recipe yields 6 brownies. Macronutrients are as follows:

120 calories
6 g fat
8g carb (3 g fiber, only 1.3 g sugar!)
12g protein

These are super delicious if topped with additional almond butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

They’re also great as an on-the-go protein bar. I’ll be bringing these on my long road trip to Chicago along with my other prepped snacks for some added protein!

    • If you purchase the almond milk that comes on the shelves and not in the refrigerator section, I think you’ll be OK to not refrigerate them for a few days. I brought these on a road trip and they seemed to hold up 2-3 days just fine without any refrigeration besides a small cooler. However, if you want to keep them any longer than that I’d advise putting them in the fridge because of the egg.

  2. These were absolutely horrible. Used Jay Robb protein powder and they came out dry. Probably could’ve used another egg?
