Healthy Dark Chocolate Brownies {no added sugar + high protein}

I have about a hundred different brownie recipes up my sleeve and most of them consist of some secret ingredient like beans or a banana  (which I’m not hating on because I do love a good black bean brownie) but it is nice to have a dense brownie that I don’t have to blend before baking – something more traditional…

 


 

I have made this recipe a few times using different flavored proteins to sweeten the brownies (and obviously to add extra protein)  and guess what? They all worked out perfectly! If you don’t have a chocolate flavored protein, that’s okay because vanilla or peanut butter flavor will work just as nicely!

 

 

I highly recommend dipping your brownies in peanut butter… just trust!

The Ultimate Healthy Brownie {No Beans, No Oil, No Bananas, No Butter and Still FUDGY}

I’m known to commonly use beans in my brownies recipes but I’ll be the first to admit while yes, they are delicious, black bean brownies just don’t have the same texture as real brownies. I’ve used avocado–tastes amazing but still not the same. I’ve used bananas–great if you want a banana flavored brownie.

It’s been two years since my healthy baking journey began and I think I have finally put the right ingredients together and created THE ULTIMATE HEALTHY BROWNIE that tastes like a freakin’ brownie!

Super Healthy Cookie Dough Brownie Bars

DSC_1835Super Duper Healthy Brownies Topped with Cookie Dough!

I wish I could start every blog post with those sweet sweet words–err healthy words. These brownies are so fudgy and dense; it’s hard to believe they are made from black beans and bananas and only 6g of fat in an entire brownie!

My blender hates me because I blend just about anything and everything but I have to say these brownies are well worth the death of my little Black and Decker. DSC_1844

Don’t forget to save this recipe on Pinterest so you don’t lose it! 🙂

  • 1/2 c cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder

  3. Pour evenly into pan and bake for 25-28 minutes.
  4. Let brownies cool completely. If you absolutely can’t wait like me, you can place them in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  5. Once cooled, mix all dry ingredients for the cookie dough in a bowl. Add melted coconut oil and remaining ingredients. Mix until dough forms. Fold in chocolate chips.
  6. Press cookie dough evenly on top on the brownie, flatten with a spatula.
