Guest Post: Protein – Brownies? That Are Delicious!

My approach to weight loss is based upon flexible dieting.  My clients are given macros, which are proteins, fats and carbs, which comprises total calories.  They then eat within the budget that is prescribed for their specific body.  What makes this plan so effective is that there are no foods that one has to eat and no foods that are off limits.  This makes for very sustainable, long term, successful weight loss.

While I can have a brownie, ice cream or cookies, I have learned that those types of calorie dense foods add up very fast.  And because I like to eat in volume, I have created many healthy, low calories, low fat versions of these desserts so that I can have the entire tray if I’d like for less calories rather than just one. 

One of my favorite recipes is my Protein Brownie. You can add a peanut butter swirl to it, a cream cheese filling, chocolate chips or simply plain as is.  Not only do they hit the spot and cure my cravings for sweets, but keep my waistline in check too. 

Here is the recipe that has never been shared before, as it’s a new edition to my recipe ebook due out in a few weeks.

Protein Chocolate Brownies
4 scoops Chocolate Protein Powder
½ cup + 2 TBS cocoa powder
½ cup + 2 TBS Pure Pumpkin
2 tsp baking powder
5 ounces % Plain Greek Yogurt
1 cup Sweetener (I used Swerve)
1 cup Water
⅓ cup chocolate chips (I use Lily’s)
Preheat Oven to 350
Mix dry ingredients
Add wet ingredients to form the batter
Pour into 8x8 greased (or sprayed) square pan
Bake 30-35 minutes or until middle is set
Cut when cool

Serving Size: 9 pieces 83 calories 5g carbs 1g fat 13g protein

These are a total crowd pleaser to bring to your next barbecue. Also, try these out on children a great way to serve a snack with a healthy punch!
