Top Secret Nutrition Protein Brownies

Hey guys and girls…well, the mad baker is at it again.  Last week I made some protein brownies using Top Secret Nutrition’s 100% Whey in Chocolate and they were pretty good.  But, I felt the need to tweak the recipe just a bit to get them a little more moist.  So, I gave it another go tonight and think I came up with one that was pretty darn good.  So, here goes:

IMAG3204-1-1

  • 1/2 cup oat flour (you can grind up oatmeal – just make sure you measure AFTER grinding)
  • 3 scoops Top Secret Nutrition 100% Whey, chocolate
  • 3 TBSP Hershey’s unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup stevia, splenda, or truvia (I used truvia in my recipe)
  • 4 oz unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1/4 cup liquid egg whites
  • 1/8 cup Walden Farms Zero Sugar/Zero Calorie chocolate syrup

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9 x 9 baking pan with Pam baking spray.

Combine all dry ingredients first, then add wet ingredients and mix well.  Add the batter to the pan and bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes until done (toothpick or knife comes out clean).  Check first around 20 minutes and then every 2 minutes after…do not overcook!  Cool for about 10 minutes, cut into 9 even squares (or 9 ridiculously uneven squares if you’re me) and enjoy!

Here is the nutritional breakdown per brownie:

  • Calories:  101 (darn that single calorie!)
  • Protein: 12 grams
  • Carbs: 8 grams (only 2 sugar/2 fiber)
  • Fat:  3 grams

Optional:  add crushed walnuts or anything else your heart desires (just don’t forget to add those calories in if you’re keeping track).  Hope you enjoy them!
