Protein blender brownies. Vegan & gluten free.
I was terribly excited to get my hands on my talented friend/blogger’s Armen Liew new cookbook. Arem is the genius behind the blog The Big Man’s World. His is absolutely phenomenal & I highly recommend it. This is NOT sponsored in any way, shape or form but my opinion. If you love sweets but don’t love the calorie bomb/destruction to your eating. Aren’t a huge fan of sugar-overload. Check his blog and cookbook out. Today I whipped up his 4 ingredient flourless brownies in my Vitamix and man… I’m in love!
These brownies came together super fast. Perfect when you need a treat in a hurry… in fact the waiting for them to cool/slice took longer than prepping and baking! I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
1 scoop of chocolate protein (I used Nuzest chocolate)
2 bananas, mashed
1/4 cup of raw cacao powder
1/2 cup of smooth nut butter of choice
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line your loaf pan with parchment paper. Spray the parchment with your favorite baking spray ( I use coconut oil). Add all of your ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth (it will be thick). Spoon your batter into the pan and bake for 15 minutes. Remove and let cool completely before removing. Slice when cool.
Amen calculates this recipe as 4 brownies —- this would make them quite large in my opinion. I sliced into 8 brownies. His nutritional breakdown is for 4 brownies:
I dusted mine with raw cacao powder but that’s optional.
