Secretly Healthy Chocolate Frosted Brownies

Ingredients

    Brownies
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 box black beans, rinsed (I use the Simply Balanced Target brand about 13oz)
  • 1/4 c coconut sugar
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder of choice (I used PEScience Chocolate-get 25% off using code PBCHOCO)
  • 1/2 c unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • Frosting!
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/4 c plus 3 tbsp. vitafiber syrup or sticky syrup*
  • 1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 scoop protein powder (I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla)

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350f and prepare an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place all brownie ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  3. Brownie batter should be very thick! Spread batter evenly into baking pan and bake for 25 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and place in the freezer to cool for 20-30 minutes.
  5. In a blender, blend the avocado (skin and pit removed), 1/4 cup vitafiber and protein until smooth.
  6. Place 2-3 tablespoons of frosting into a zip lock bag and set a side for later decorating.
  7. Add cocoa powder and 3 tablespoons vitafiber syrup to remaining frosting and blend until smooth.
  8. Remove brownies from freezer and top with an even layer of chocolate frosting.
  9. Cut the corner of the zip lock bag you set a side earlier and decorate brownies in a zig-zag line or however your heart desires.
  10. Return to the freezer for 40 minutes to set.
  11. Remove and cut into 9 squares. For clean cut brownies, wet knife before cutting

Notes

*Vitafiber syrup can be replaced with any sticky syrup such as brown rice syrup, maple syrup, honey, agave, etc., however, macros will change. *For vegan use carob powder and vegan protein

Calories per serving: 193

Carbs per serving: 31

Protein per serving: 23

Three Ingredient Vanilla Protein Bars

Ingredients

  • 1/4 c almond butter or cashew butter
  • 1 scoop Vanilla Whey Protein Powder
  • 1/4 c vitafiber syrup or sticky syrup (see notes)
  • sprinkles (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a microwave safe bowl, gently melt the vitafiber syrup and almond butter together and mix using a fork until smooth.
  2. Add protein and continue mixing until you get a sticky dough texture.
  3. Use your hands to separate the dough into two evenly sized balls.
  4. Mold dough into a bar shape.
  5. Quickly top with sprinkles before the protein bar starts to dry.
  6. Let sit and room temp for 10-15 minutes before serving. This will allow for the bar to harden a bit.

Notes

If subbing vitafiber with maple syrup/honey/agave etc., only use 3 tbsp. instead of 1/4 cup.

Cake Batter Protein Ice Cream

Cake Batter Protein Ice Cream

This legit tastes like cake batter!

Is it as creamy as full ice cream? No, but considering it only has 9 carbs, 4 grams of fat ad 31 grams of protein per serving, it’s a perfect replacement.

For a dairy free substitute, check the notes.


I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla protein powder–it already tastes like freaking ice cream by itself. You can get 25% off any PEScience order from their website using my code PBCHOCO.

P.S. Don’t skip the sprinkles! Blending them into the ice cream is crucial if you want that “cake batter” taste. 🙂

Cake Batter Protein Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 2 c almond milk or milk of choice
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (I used PEScience)
  • 1 serving container non-fat vanilla greek yogurt (I used Light & Fit)
  • 2 tbsp. rainbow sprinkles (this is necessary)

Instructions

  1. Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth.
  2. Transfer to a glass container or freezer safe container and freeze over night.
  3. Remove from freezer and let sit at room temperature for 20-30 minutes or until soft enough to remove from container and return to the blender.
  4. Blend on high until smooth like soft serve. ***You can stop here if you prefer a soft serve like ice cream texture but if you want a more firm texture, return to the freezer for another hour before scooping into an ice cream cone and topping with more sprinkles.

Notes

For a dairy free version, use vegan protein and full fat coconut milk instead of yogurt.
