Protein Power Guilt Free Brownies!
*I originally found a recipe by Anna Sward (ProteinPow.com) however I have made modifications:
1 cup Egg Whites
1 cup cooked black beans *Trust me you will never know they are in there. this is strictly for “moisturizing properties”) you might also try pumpkin puree, or other “moisturizers” but this worked for me!)
3/4 cup chocolate (or chocolate Peanut butter) Protein Powder -I used Diesel Chocolate PB.
1/4 cup Cocoa
1/4 cup Honey (you could use agave syrup, Date syrup or Stevia)
1/4-1/3 cup quick oats (or, 3 tbsp coconut flour, or ground almonds. You can experiment.)
5 TBSP Cottage Cheeze ( I used low fat)
1/2 tsp baking soda
Optional: Peanut butter.
Use and immersion blender, or regular blender: you want the batter to be smooth, and pourable like pancake mix. pour into a small pan or glasswhere – I used a small square pan and cut into 12 brownies.
Bake on approx. 340-350 for 45 min to 1 hour (when a toothpick or knife will come out clean.)
Convection oven takes much less time. check on them after 30 min.
The recipe as outlined above (with the quick oats, honey etc Nutritional info by my calculations, which were quite close to the ones with the original recipe as well:)
Fat: < .5 grams (however: check your ingredients. if you use regular cottage chz or add pb adjust accordingly)
ENJOY!! GUILT FREE AND PACKED WITH PROTEIN 🙂 also have approximately 2 grams fibre.
