Chewy Chocolate Brownies

Chewy Chocolate Brownies

Chewy brownies anyone? These also happen to be nut-free and flourless!

So funny story how this recipe happened. I ran out of almond flour, and was craving some chocolate brownies. Didn’t have any nut butters either, so decided to improvise. 

The result: these amazing decadent chewy protein brownies Best served warm, with a hot cup of milk.

  • 5 tbsp oil of choice (I used avocado but coconut could work well too)
  • 1 tbsp milk of choice
  • 2 eggs (can be substituted with 2 flax eggs for vegan)
  • 150 g dark chocolate of choice (I used Lindt 70%)
  • ½ cup coconut sugar or xylitol
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 scoop chocolate/vanilla protein powder (OR 3 tbsp coconut flour + 1 tbsp additional sweetener (coco sugar/xylitol))
  • 6 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C and line a brownie tin with baking paper.

  2. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate. Set aside.
  3. Beat together the sugar, milk, eggs and oil for roughly 1 min or so until well combined.
  4. Stir in the melted chocolate, as well as the rest of the ingredients (protein powder, coconut sugar, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, vanilla)
  5. Pour batter into prepared tin, and decorate the top with optional chocolate chips.
  6. Bake for roughly 25-35 mins until slightly under done. Take out of oven and allow to cool, brownies should set while they cool.
