And here’s my newest protein brownie recipe (it tastes more like a cake than the fudgey flourless brownies above)… Check out this healthy clean protein brownie recipe with protein powder.
Warning: baking with protein powder can results in major FAILS. The type of protein powder you bake with makes all the difference in the taste and texture of your recipe. If you don’t want to your dessert to taste like cardboard, make sure to use a high quality protein powder that bakes well.
- 2 scoops chocolate protein powder (I used PEScience Milk Chocolate)
- 1 cup baking stevia or granulated sweetener of your choice
- 1/4 cup almond flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 3/4 cup baked sweet potato, mashed
- 3/4 cup (6 large) egg whites
- 2 tbsp. almond butter
- 4 tbsp. dark unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips, chopped nuts, etc (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Mix dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
- Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Bake sweet potato, remove skin and mash with wet ingredients.
- Blend wet and dry ingredients until smooth, (stir in optional chocolate chips, nuts, etc)
- Spray a 8"x8" baking dish and spread batter evenly
- Bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out slightly dirty (the longer you cook, the more cake-like they will be- just watch out for dry-ness)
