Chocolate Protein Brownies

I posted this protein brownie recipe on Honey We’re Healthy awhile ago and it’s been such a hit, that I wanted to share it here too.  I make these all the time and eat them as snacks and my son loves them too.  The consistency is actually more like a cake, but you don’t have to feel guilty about eating this cake.  The recipe comes from Jamie Eason and I put in italics how I tweaked it.  

  • 1 cup Oat Flour (I ground oats finely in a food processor)
  • 2 scoops Vanilla Whey Protein Powder (I used chocolate protein powder)
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 3 tbsp Baking Cocoa 
  • 4 Egg Whites
  • ½ cup Splenda (I leave out the sugar and add 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips)
  • 8oz Berry flavored Baby Food (I used 8oz applesauce)
  • 4oz Water
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix dry ingredients (oat flour, vanilla whey protein, baking soda, salt, baking cocoa) together in a large bowl.
  • Mix wet ingredients (egg whites, applesauce, water) together in a medium sized bowl.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix together.
  • Spray cooking dish (I used an 8×8 glass pan) with a non stick butter spray or olive oil spray and add batter to dish.
  • Bake for about 25-30 minutes

    These look amazing! Do you think coconut flour would work okay instead of the oat flour?

    Hi Megan,
    I usually just lurk and not comment but I wanted to say thank you…thank you! I have a gluten intolerance and have been trying to find a good protein bar recipe and these look amazing!

    They sound super yummy. I would love to make them, but would hate to tempt our youngest who cannot have chocolate or whey. Thinking I might try tweaking this and see how it turns out.

    I see 2 bars=96 calories but what is the serving size for your bars?

    I love this recipe! I got all excited when I saw that you were going to be at Home Goods again, but then I realized that it was from the one in April. My friend, who had never been to a Home Goods, is hooked on them since I brought her that morning. Good times!!
