These are VERY fudgey, chocolatey and dense..like a brownie should be. I called them “Brownie Protein Bars” because I prefer to eat larger portions as my breakfast, but 1/2 of a serving makes a great dessert and = 1 regular size brownie.
I hope you love these as much as I do!
Made with my new favourite ingredient Vitafiber, a high fibre, calorie syrup substitute for sugar. You can also purchase the powdered form of Vitafiber, which is amazing for use as a flour or sugar substitute in baking specifically.
I’ll link to where you can purchase it if you are interested! 🙂
Now onto the recipe…
Serves 8 (Or 16)
Macros per serving, if you make 8: 7F/22C/14P & 8g fibre
Protein I use: Cellucor Molten Chocolate
Super soft, sugary and delicious…
Makes 9 large servings.
4F/19C/11P & 9g fibre per square. Enjoy!
**Vitafiber is now available on amazon! (High fibre sugar/flour replacement, one of my favourite ingredients).**
Today was a great day, finished all my cardio, slept in a bit & oh..just got the best package ever. Don’t you love it when you hear the doorbell ring and you just know..Yup, like Christmas morning, my Cellucor 3 pack of protein showed up! Of course I tore into them and opened each one immediately (although I wasn’t planning to use them until later). They all smelt amazing. I ordered the Molten Chocolate and Cor-fetti cake batter flavours. In this recipe I used the chocolate of course..because I am a chocolate girl 100%. But I am crossing my fingers that Cor-fetti will change that for me.
Anywho, whipped up this little aesthetic beauty before bed. I am currently writing this post as I posted a photo without the recipe and am now getting multiple complaints..haha I guess i should stop torturing you all with my food porn but I can’t help but be a bit lazy when It comes to typing out the recipe.
BUT I am doing this for you guys at 1:00am because I love you all soooo much and I know you can’t wait another minute to make one of these delicious creations for yourself.
Did I mention this was outrageously delicious & chocolatey? Oh, and yes. The macros are for the entire single serving loaf. So no sharing required. (Not like that was an option anyways.. 😉 hehe. )
Okay, done rambling, here’s what you’ve been waiting for.
- 27g (0.8 scoop) Cellucor Molten Chocolate Whey (you could probably do a full scoop, just fitting my macros here, haha)
- 1 tbsp almond flour
- 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/16 tsp baking soda
- 1/16 tsp baking powder
- dash of salt
- 1-2 tsp truvia sweetener (more or less to taste, also depends on the ripeness of your banana, I usually use a little extra as the sweetness tends to diminish a bit with baked goods using protein powder)
- 1/2 mashed ripe banana(63g)
- 2 tbsp egg whites
- 2 tbsp 0% plain greek yogurt
- 1 tsp coconut oil melted
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp mini chocolate chips (6g) (I used the enjoy life brand)
- 1/2 tbsp natural almond butter
- pam spray
Directions: Preheat your oven to 350*F. Spray a single serving loaf pan or ramekin with pam/olive oil spray, set aside. Combine your dry ingredients until no clumps are left. Combine the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. (Do not stir in chocolate chips or the almond butter!). Next stir the wet into the dry ingredients and combine until smooth, taste and add additional sweetener as desired. Spoon the batter into your greased ramekin or pan, now swirl in the almond butter and sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Place in the centre of the oven for 15-20min. (Baking time will vary depending on the pan you choose, DO NOT OVERBAKE. )Watch closely and when a toothpick comes out clean, it’s done! You can also under bake it slightly if you are one of those people like me that like things a little fudgey still in the centre…haha. And that’s it! Let it cool for about 5 minutes and eat with a spoon or cool completely and remove from the ramekin/pan and place on a plate. Top with whatever your heart (*ahem* macros..) desire. Enjoy!
Macros for entire recipe: 15F/24C/31P, 7g fibre
Good morning all! Tomorrow we leave for my amazing cottage so I wanted to bake a healthy breakfast ahead of time…and what’s better than the combination of cinnamon, chocolate and peanuts? Uh..Nothing! So what I did was take my original cinnamon swirl protein bars made with the amazing Trutein cinnabun protein powder, and just topped them with 30g (2 tbsp) of mini chocolate chips, baked them in a 9×9 inch pan and cut them into 9 huge squares…I may have also added a couple extra peanuts in the bars ;)….

Have you hated all the recipes you have ever made with protein powder? Have they all turned out rubbery or dry and crumbly? Want a protein bar recipe that is actually 100% delicious that you won’t be able to put down? One that’s moist, sweet and soft? Well then look no further, this recipe is here to save the day. I originally learned this recipe by following Jamie Eason’s(fitness model) version but I changed them up and made them even more delicious! I have to tell you that I am super picky about anything I make with protein powder. I have thrown out everything I have ever baking with protein powder other than 1 or two things, this being one of them. But this is the only recipe that I have continued to make again and again because I am actually sad when they are gone and I have a hard time only eating one or two! Even my brother who hates everything healthy likes these bars. So I am telling you right now…GO MAKE THESE. You will not regret it! Take me to the recipe!
