Small Batch Protein Brownies are super fudgy and yes, packed full of protein! Make this small batch and satisfy your sweet tooth without worrying about calories or fat.
As mentioned previously, I purchased a very small baking pan. I still haven’t managed to get some decent instant pot brownies made in it, but, did manage to get another batch of brownies made it it.
On my recent trip to the local library, I picked up a cookbook that is strictly for small batch desserts. They are also require just a few ingredients and are guilt free. ( see link to cookbook in recipe card)
These brownies were calling my name.
Your Supply List:
- 6 inch baking pan (see recipe card for the size I used). You could also use a small loaf pan, but, may need to adjust your baking time. Don’t forget to grease it with non stick cooking spray.
- Blender or food processor. Yep! Throw all your ingredients in and blend them until smooth. If you don’t have either item, you can mix by hand, but, your batter may be a little less smooth.
- Rubber spatula + measuring cups/ spoons.
Only 4 Ingredients!
- Unsweetened cocoa powder: I used dark, but, regular will also be fine.
- Peanut butter: Creamy
- Bananas: You will need 1 cup mashed bananas. This will probably been approx 2-3 medium size bananas.
- Chocolate Protein Powder: I was very intimidated by this ingredient when I saw it. I’ve never purchased it before and they all seem really quite costly. I wasn’t ready to buy a giant container of the powder, so, I found a single packet on Amazon (see recipe card for item). This worked out perfectly! It was only about $6 and it was plenty to make a few batches of brownies. Shop around at Amazon, Walmart , Target or your local grocery store for the size/brand/price that you are comfortable with.
These protein brownies are delicious, and not overly sweet. They do have more of a cocoa taste to them, rather than chocolate. I recommend topping them with a bit of chocolate syrup and vanilla ice cream. My favorite→ → Halo Top.
