The best chocolate protein brownies

Since being in lockdown I have really been working out alot and I decided to make some chocolate protein brownies and man, they were delicious. Of course you don’t have to add the protein if you don’t want to, but I am really into my fitness at the moment and by adding the protein it makes me feel that tiny bit healthier. Lol, obviously these aren’t healthy in any way but atleast I am getting some sort of gains from it, you know..

This is the chocolate protein that I use. This is the first time of me trying this protein powder and I really like it, it doesn’t take like artificial chocolate.

Method:

Step one: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. In a small saucepan, fill it half way with boiling water and place on the hob under a medium heat. Get a glass bowl and place it on top of the saucepan. Place the unsalted butter into the bowl and allow to melt. Once melted take the bowl off and let it cool down.

Step two: In a large bowl whisk the eggs and the sugar together until it is frothy. Pour the bowl with the melted butter in into this larger bowl and mix all of the ingredients together.

Step three: In the same bowl sieve in the plain flour, cocoa powder and the chocolate protein powder. Slowly fold all of the ingredients together. Add a dash of milk and if you think it needs another dash, then add it. Mix together and it should form a thick paste

Step four: Pour in the mixture to any tin you like, this will depend on how thick you want them to be. Go for any size tin you like. I used a smallish square one because I wanted them to be really thick. The smaller the tin, the longer you will have to keep the brownies in the oven for. Keep them in the oven for about 20-40 minutes (depending on how thick the brownies are) Wait until the top starts to harden and when you poke it with a skewer it isn’t runny, but the contents are soft inside. Allow to cool, add some decorations and they are ready to enjoy.

These brownies are so gooey and such a treat to eat. I love adding protein when I can into my foods, most of the time you can’t even tell that there is protein in there.

    They look so nice! I usually don’t like protein powder added into anything other than a smoothie but I don’t think I’ve ever tried protein brownies before. I need to give it a go x
