Oh my god, these Easy Healthy High-Protein Vegan Fudge Brownies are incredible and taste absolutely amazing. They are incredibly easy to make, all you need is 6 ingredients! They can be made high-protein if you use protein powder, so they will be the most delicious protein you will get for your work out, or just for general protein intake.
If you don’t like protein powders, simply replace the protein powder with almond flour or even oat flour.
Now I would recommend putting these in the fridge to set for a bit once they are cooked and before you consume them, otherwise they might taste a bit too soft.
If you want an indulgent dessert after dinner, you could easily warm them in the microwave for 10 seconds and add a scoop of dairy-free ice cream, and you got the perfect dessert to end the meal!
It’s pretty easy to make these delicious brownies, simply puree all the ingredients ( apart from the chocolate chips ) until smooth using either a food processor or a high-speed blender, then mix in the chocolate chips and pour the batter onto a lined baking tin.
Bake for 20 minutes, leave to cool before cutting and simply enjoy!
4 (400g) very ripe bananas
1/3 / 110g of almond milk ( or any plant-based milk of your choice )
2 tablespoons of maple syrup
1 cup (120g) cocoa powder
2 scoops (82 grams) vegan protein powder, vanilla or chocolate ( if you don’t want to do these with protein powder, simply replace it with ground almond flour)
4 tablespoons of (70g) dairy-free chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350F/180C. Place the bananas, almond milk, maple syrup, cocoa powder and protein powder in a food processor and mix until completely smooth.
2. Prepare a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray, or simply line it with parchment paper, then spoon in the batter from the food processor. Use a spoon to spread it out so it’s flat and even.
3. Evenly distribute the chocolate chips on top. Place them in the oven. After a few minutes, remove and use the back of a spoon to spread the melted chocolate chips. Place back in the oven. Or simply stir in the chocolate chips into the batter and mix well then bake.
4. Bake for 20 minutes. They’ll seem underdone when you take them out but once they cool, they’ll be good to go. Let cool in the pan then slice into 8 squares.
You can store these Easy Healthy High-Protein Vegan Fudge Brownies at room temperature or in the fridge. I like storing in the fridge because they get extra fudgy and delicious that way!
It’s not imperative that you use extra ripe bananas, as long as they’re not under-ripe it will work fine. Very ripe bananas will result in a richer, sweeter brownie but the recipe will work either way. You can either stir in the chocolate chips and bake as is. Or add them on top, then spread them around once they melt. I like spreading them so they’re evenly distributed overtop of each piece.
