Protein Brownies – You’ll LOVE

NO processed sugar and NO flour used.

Very fluffy and moist… and taste like REAL chocolate brownies. Looks at LOT more chocolate in colour than is shown here.

Ingredients

1 ½ cup sweet potatoes, mashed
1 cup peanut butter
3 tbsp cocoa powder
2 scoops chocolate protein powder
1 egg
¼ maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl …BUT… add the egg last, after all of the other ingredients have been well mixed. The sweet potato lumps will easily stand out (so you can be sure to mash them) against the colour of chocolate.
  3. Spray an 8″×8″ square pan with cooking spray.  I used a round pan, but brownies cut up easier using a square pan.
  4. After all ingredients have been mixed well together mix in the egg, and then pour the batter into the baking pan.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Easily serves 10 people.

Hey Trish, I really want to try your GF Protein Brownies, but needed to check about the maple syrup. Is it 1/4 cup?
Thanks!!

    Yes Fran, maple syrup instead of processed sugar. I feel it’s healthier choice. Please, do come back and comment here as to whether you like this recipe or not, won’t you?
