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!
Super dense 108 calorie brownies made healthy with no oil or added sugar!
- 1/2 c coconut flour
- 1/2 c oat flour

- 3 eggs, whole
- 2 tbsp. all natural sugar-free maple syrup (I used Joseph's)
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp. sugar-free chocolate chips (I used Lily's)
- Pre-heat oven to 350F and prepare an 8x8 inch pan with non-stick spray.
- In a large bowl, sift together all dry ingredients.
- Stir in all wet ingredients until completely incorporated. Batter should be very thick - almost dough like.
- Fold in chocolate chips.
- Press evenly into the pan and bake for 15-17 minutes.
- Let cool completely.
- For better tasting brownies, place brownies in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours before serving.
