It’s time for some healthy brownie protein bites! I’m an absolute fan of chocolate, brownies, cakes or any mouth-watering sweet chocolatey dessert. Yum! Therefore, I thought of whipping up a batch of brownies, but instead, creating an easy, fuss-free, no-bake, “I can totally do this in 5 minutes”, recipe! Everyone needs a treat now and then. But why not have your treat, without the extra calories and fat? Word.
I can’t even go on to explain how easy these were to make. This recipe is pretty similar to my healthy peanut butter protein balls and cookie dough bites, which are absolutely delicious! I mean, this recipe literally took 5 minutes. It takes me longer to tie my hair up! You know pre-workout hair styles, gotta make sure your hair stays 100% in place, am I right? Oh and speaking of pre-workout, these brownie bites are a perfect pre or post-workout snack! They’re loaded with protein, and each brownie bite has 8g of protein. Say what?
I can’t even began to explain how these brownie protein bites taste just like like brownie batter. YUMMMM. My absolute favourite thing apart from cookie dough batter is brownie batter. I’m pretty sure everyone in the world loves brownie batter. Chocolatey, rich, tasty and pops right in your mouth! These brownie bites are a perfect go-to snack, something you can bring along to school, or to the office and share with your colleagues and friends! Or just eat em all yourself. I won’t tell, don’t worry.
I’ve added a vegan option for ya’ll so everyone can try this recipe out! I’m such a fan of Nakd energy bars, and I wanted to recreate something similar. Because you know those energy bars they sell outside are sooo expensive. And also, they are loaded with sugar. Sad to say. If you give them a quick check on the ingredient’s list, you’ll see that they have at least 10g of sugar or more. That’s like 2 tablespoons of sugar! Yikes! Not good. So why not make your own protein bites that are a fraction of the price, and much much better for you! Plus, they taste amazing!
When I was a little girl, brownies were my go-to “make my mum happy” recipe! They were just the best thing to bake. And everyone in my house loves brownies. They’re the simplest but most delicious household treat, and they taste so homemade. Whenever I think of home baking, brownies always pop to mind. Oh, and apple pie. But since I and my entire family are huge chocolate lovers, brownies were the way to go! We’d eat them with loads of vanilla ice cream, and I just remember myself taking scoop after scoop! I loved the way hot brownies paired of nicely with cold ice cream. I still eat brownies and ice cream on occasion, but I love whipping up healthy versions of my favourite desserts! So.. On to the recipe! I hope you guys enjoy this one!
- 2 scoops chocolate protein powder
- 1/2 cup cashew butter
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 cup of almond milk (any kind of milk will work)
- 2 tbsp agave syrup (or any sweetener)
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder (if you don't have chocolate protein you can add this in)
- handful of chocolate chips (for that extra crunch!)
- Combine all ingredients together and mix well. You might want to use your hands for this.
- Add the milk in until the mixture sticks together. Then roll about a tablespoon of the mixture into balls.
