Healthy Protein Brownies
These healthy protein brownies are rich, fudgy and come together quickly in one bowl! They're flourless, naturally sweetened and have 7 grams of protein per brownie. Gluten-free + dairy-free.
- 1 cup creamy almond butter
- 2 large eggs
- ½ cup pure maple syrup
- ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup chocolate protein powder I used Nuzest
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt skip if almond butter is salted
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ cup chocolate chips plus more for topping
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8×8-inch baking pan or line with parchment.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together almond butter, eggs, maple syrup, almond milk and vanilla extract.
Add protein powder, cocoa powder, sea salt and baking powder into the mixing bowl and stir until combined. If you notice your batter is on the drier side (which could happen depending on what almond butter or protein powder you use), add a splash more milk!
Gently fold in chocolate chips.
Transfer mixture to the prepared pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until brownies are set in the center and a toothpick comes out clean. Let brownies cool completely (trust me, they test better cool, plus you won’t burn your mouth). Cut into squares and enjoy!
