I’l be honest, most protein brownies taste like crap. Well not these. This is literally my mom’s recipe for high protein / low carb brownies that you can have any time for a snack or even a post workout protein blast. Here’s how to make them…
* 1 heaping scoop Quest Chocolate Protein Powder (about 1/3 cup)
* 1/4 cup Rolled Oats (or oat flour)
* 2 T Coconut Oil
* 1 T Cocoa Powder (unsweetened)
* 1 Cup Water
Add protein powder, oats, and cocoa powder in a blender and mix until blended well. Add Coconut Oil, and add water a little at a time until you reach the consistency of cake batter.
Pour mixture into a sprayed pan, bake for 12 minutes at 325 – then check the center of the brownies with a toothpick. If it is still very wet, continue to bake for up to another 5 minutes. Once the center is set but not dry, remove from oven and let rest. Once cooled, cut into portions of your liking, and refrigerate or freeze.
Note: Don’t over bake! (cuz that will make it not good)
The entire pan will have 24g Protein and 12 Net Carbs. Cut into whatever size you’d like!
PS: The pan in the picture had 6 servings in it – so one scoop will require a very small pan!
