Brownie frosting recipes
These protein brownies come in a variety of flavors.
First, you can sprinkle mini chocolate chips on the cookies before baking. After they’ve been baked, no icing is needed.
You can also make it a recipe with even more protein by cooling the brownies and frosting them using the filling of these peanut butter brownies.
Using the peanut butter frosting shown in the video, each brownie with a frosted top will contain an extra three grams of protein. This makes a total of 15 grams of protein. What a great healthy dessert or snack!
You can also top them with my Chocolate Cream cheese Frosting or spread them with Nutella or almond butter.
Chocolate protein brownie ingredients
Ingredients: Protein powder, cocoa flour, almond flour (or other flour), baking powder, sugar, salt, eggs, flax eggs, butter or oil, and pure vanilla.
Use flax eggs in place of chicken eggs to make vegan protein brownies.
The recipe requires almond flour or a meal. I haven’t tried substituting whole wheat flour, coconut flour, spelled, white, or gluten-free all-purpose flour. There is an option to make the cookies without nuts in the recipe box.
You can buy These excellent alternatives to protein brownies from brands such as Fiber One, Kodiak Muscle Gain Quest, or MyProtein.

Target, grocery stores, and health food stores all offer various options. You can choose hemp, whey, collagen, egg white, brown rice, or pea protein.

Use Laird Superfood Powder to create the same recipe as I did.
I haven’t tried fudge brownies made with chocolate protein instead of plain. Please let us know if you try it.
How to make protein bars
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Set aside an 8-inch pan greased or lined with parchment paper.
Stir all ingredients for the brownies in a large bowl. Spread the brownie batter in the pan. It helps to smooth the mixture evenly into the pan if I add a second piece of parchment paper. This second parchment sheet should be removed before cooking.
Remove the brownies from the oven after 20 minutes. The brownie pan should be allowed to cool on the counter.
The cookies will continue to set up if the pan is covered with a towel.
If you are serving the brownies at a party or taking them to an event, leaving them out on the counter for a couple of hours is okay. Store leftovers in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator to keep them fresh. You can freeze chocolate protein brownie slices in an airtight bag for two to three months. Thaw the brownies before eating.
Different flavor protein brownies
Mocha Fudge – Mix half a teaspoon of instant coffee granules or espresso powder with the dry ingredients when making brownies.
Peppermint chocolate – add one-fourth teaspoon of pure peppermint oil. Add more peppermint extract to the brownie batter before baking if you want a more robust flavor.
Orange chocolate – Zest one orange into the protein brownie batter before baking.
Add chopped almonds or walnuts and some shredded coconut or chia seeds. You can also add dates, ns or other dried fruits, chocolate chips, or chia and flaxseeds.,
Try these Healthy brownies if you want to avoid nuts.
Protein powder, 1/3 cup
I like Dutch cocoa powder.
1 tsp of baking powder
Half a teaspoon of salt
Coconut oil or butter melted to 1/3 cup
Two eggs or two flax eggs
2/3 cup of sugar or granulated Erythritol
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, optional
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease or line an 8-inch pan with parchment. All ingredients should be mixed well. Spread evenly into the pan using a second piece of parchment paper if necessary. Let cool after 20 minutes of baking. As they cool, the cookies continue to harden. They will also become even firmer if you cover them loosely and place them in the refrigerator overnight. The above list includes some frosting ideas.
