The Most Chocolatey Protein Brownies Ever



It’s officially my last day at home before heading back to uni for my final semester of year one. So, I thought I would make the most of a clean kitchen and copious amount of food, and do some baking. I have a MASSIVE sweet tooth, and am always looking for ways to recreate my favourite ‘norty’ treats, but through using clean and raw ingredients!

At only 119 calories a slice with 6g protein, these brownies are exactly what I was aiming for. They have the same fudgy taste as normal brownies, but with less than half the amount of fats and carbohydrates. PLUS, they have 3/4 less sugar than Betty Crockers choccie brownies! Here’s how you can make your own guilt free, lean brownies.

NOTES – I used the PHD Diet Whey powder in the flavour Belgian chocolate! However, any type of protein powder would be good!
