Protein Brownies Recipe

What’s not to love about this Healthy Protein Brownies Recipe? It’s loaded with chocolate and the fact that it has some added protein is a huge plus. At least it is for me. I am always happy eating desserts that have added protein. We all look for an excuse to eat brownies and for me the added protein is a good enough excuse. What do you think?

My kids really love brownies and they also l0ve the fact that they are eating a healthy dessert! My son Sam gets a kick out of the fact that some of my desserts have protein and he thinks that the added protein will magically make him get muscles. Lol

If you don’t have any almond flour handy you can replace it with any other healthy flour you have handy. I may have to check on the exact conversions but you can use oat flour or whole wheat flour. I have some other brownie recipes coming soon that doesn’t require almond flour.

  1. I didn’t have almond flour and used whole wheat flour. I made this bcs I wanted other ways to incorporate protein into the diet. I would recommend lowering the sugar a little bit and maybe sticking w almond flour? Idk it was super cakey and not fudgey for me. I also reduced choc chups because I wanted to be healthy but NOPEEE big mistake

  2. 5 stars
    I made this today as a healthier option treat for my partner and I… we both really enjoyed it. The taste is absolutely amazing like a real brownie. And they were so quick to make. Next thought is subbing for white choc and maybe a Strawberry powder for a strawberey blondie kind of thing. Sounds delish in my head.

    I have trouble achieving the desired doneness when melted coconut oil is involved. That said, the flavor is great. I did add cocoa powder and peanut butter powder. I also reduced the sugar by half because I substituted Monk Fruit sweetener and I find it to be too sweet when used 1:1.

  4. 4 stars
    Rlyy good recipe definitely a keeper, I substituted truvia instead of coconut sugar. Very sweet and can taste the coconut oil but still rly good! Will make again.

    1. Agreed, 4g protein per serving does not warrant the label “protein brownie”. This is misguided junk food at best.

  5. 3 stars
    I made these with stevia instead of sugar for calorie reduction. They tasted nice but the coconut oil flavour is very evident, almost to the point of overpowering the chocolate. If you like a bounty bar these will be great but if not I would say sub the oil for butter, which is no more calorific tbh. Otherwise a good recipe
