Tips for Making No Bake Protein Brownies

  • I use Vega Essential Protein Powder – you can use any protein powder that you use (preferably chocolate).
  • Instead of peanut butter you can use almond butter or cashew butter.
  • I used dates in this recipe to sweeten naturally – you can also use maple syrup or coconut sugar.
  • Keep protein brownies refrigerated in a sealed container to keep fresh and firm.

Ingredients

Brownies

  • 1 1/2 cups mejool dates
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter, creamy
  • 1/4 cup chocolate protein powder

Instructions

  1. Brownies: Chop dates in food processor/high powered blender until pureed. Transfer to mixing bowl. Mix date puree, cocoa powder, peanut butter, protein powder, and coconut oil together. 

  2. Transfer batter: Line a 9x5 loaf pan with parchment paper (edges of the paper long enough so you can pull the bars out with when they freeze). Lay brownie batter in parchment paper, press down with back of spoon and smooth edges. 

  3. Chocolate Ganache: in a small bowl mix coconut oil, honey, vanilla, sifted cocoa powder. Mix ingredients until smooth and pour over brownies, even out ganache with back of spoon to cover brownies evenly. 

  4. Pop brownies in freezer to harden between 30-45 minutes. Remove from freezer, pull edges of parchment paper out and use a knife to cut bars into squares. Warm extra peanut butter in microwave and drizzle over bars. YUM.
