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.
Course Snack


  • 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


  • Preheat oven to 180°C and line a brownie tin with baking paper.
  • In a double boiler, melt the chocolate. Set aside.
  • Beat together the sugar, milk, eggs and oil for roughly 1 min or so until well combined.
  • Stir in the melted chocolate, as well as the rest of the ingredients (protein powder, coconut sugar, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, vanilla)
  • Pour batter into prepared tin, and decorate the top with optional chocolate chips.
  • Bake for roughly 25-35 mins until slightly under done. Take out of oven and allow to cool, brownies should set while they cool.
