Secretly Healthy Chocolate Frosted 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)


  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


*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
