Protein Chocolate Brownies

Are you battling between being healthy after the gym and satisfying your sweet tooth with yummy treats? These easy to make protein brownies will do both! They let you get your healthy protein fix and cure those sweet cravings. Great eh?

Prep Time: under 20 mins

Cooking Time: 25-30 mins

Difficulty: medium

Price: ££

Serving Size: 12 slices.

Ingredients:

  • 125g margarine
  • 175g soft brown sugar
  • 50g Fair Trade plain chocolate
  • 2 medium free range egg
  • 100g self raising flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 70g/1.5 scoops of protein powder (vanilla or chocolate)

Top tip: to make your protein brownies even more sustainable, why not choose an eco-friendly protein powder? You could avoid whey and choose vegan protein, soy protein or organic sunflower protein.

Ideas for Toppings you might fancy (some healthier than others)–

  • Greek yoghurt
  • Ice cream
  • raspberries, strawberries, seeds, blueberries and banana
  • nuts

Top tip: Why not choose fruit toppings that are in season? The strawberry British season starts in May…. you could try to grow your own or have a fun day out  strawberry picking (and eating a couple too)!
