There seems to be a lot of love for my (sweet potato) protein brownies but not everybody liked the idea of sweet potato in a brownie.. so, listening to demand here is a new chocolate protein brownie recipe, minus the potato (and replaced with another secret ingredient!!).
- 1 can (240g drained) chickpeas
- 3 egg whites
- 1 scoop (25-30g) chocolate protein powder*
- 100g dark chocolate chips
- 1/2 tsp coconut or veg oil
- 2 heaped tbsp oats**
- 2 tbsp sugar or stevia (calorie free sweetener)***
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
*Or swap for ~1 tbsp cocoa & ~3 tbsp milk powder OR hot chocolate powder!
**To make this recipe gluten free use gluten free oats.
***Someone has also swapped the sweetener for dates!
Add the chickpeas, egg whites, chocolate protein powder, oats, sugar/stevia, salt and baking powder to a food processor.. whizz until smooth
Melt the oil and dark chocolate chips for a few minutes in a microwavable bowl and add to the food processor then whizz again
Pour in to a small baking tray lined with baking paper and smooth out with a spatula
Bake in the oven for 25 minutes at 175 degrees C until cooked
Slice in to 9-12 slices, allow to cool and enjoy!
