If the title of this post doesn’t make your mouth water, maybe this will:
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:
- 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:
6 g fat
8g carb (3 g fiber, only 1.3 g sugar!)
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!
