Makes: 8 brownies
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
- 1 ripe avocado
- 2 large eggs
- 100ml Sugar-Free Syrup
- 90g flour
- 60g cocoa powder
- 2 scoops Impact Whey Protein (Chocolate)
- 50g High-Protein Chocolate
- Begin by preheating your oven to 150˚C/170˚C for fan-assisted. Next, line an 8” square baking tray with greaseproof paper.
- In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mash in the ripe avocado and whisk in the eggs. Mix until no large lumps remain.
- Now stir in the Sugar-Free Syrup. Add in the cocoa powder and stir until fully incorporated, then stir the flour and whey protein until just incorporated. Next, add the chocolate in by smashing it up into small pieces and fold them into the mixture.
- Now spread the batter into the tray evenly. Bake for 15-20 minutes (15 minutes yields the fudgiest protein brownies, whereas 20 minutes yields cakier protein brownies).
- Once baked, allow to cool for 30 minutes, cut into 8 squares and serve.
