THESE No Bake Protein Power Brownies. Ultra fudge-y, chocolate lover approved, and a paleo friendly dessert because… They’re secretly good for you. ?  These are all things yummy and decadent.

I’m not kidding when I say I love chocolate. And I love eating something sweet after dinner with my evening coffee. But being able to have something every night packed with sugah would totally not be a good idea. So when I’m able to come up with a satisfying chocolate recipe that is HEALTHY you know I’m all there.

Peanut butter drizzled fudge brownies

There are SO many reasons to love these no bake protein brownies. But here are some of my favorite:

– These babies are gluten free
– They are so satisfying despite being made with wholesome ingredients
– Are packed with protein from peanut butter + protein powder
– NO baking is require! EASY
– Are addicting, fudge-y, peanut buttery, and all things YUM.

You. Need. These.

  • 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
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted

Chocolate Ganache

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla


  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.
