After a crazy response on Facebook and Twitter today here’s the simple recipe for making the Chocolate & Peanut Butter Protein Brownie I posted this morning. As always with my recipes, make sure you tailor the ingredients and amount depending on your own macronutrients and dietary goals.
Before I begin, big shout out to Chris Lavado who gave me the initial idea for the brownie!
2-2.5 scoops of Whey Protein – I use Bodybuilding Warehouse Premium Whey (chocolate cookie flavour, all of their Premium range taste amazing!)
1 can of Diet Coke or 7-Up (just less than half a can)
1 Egg White (33g liquid egg white)
25g Almond Butter/Peanut Butter
Walden Farms Chocolate/Caramel Syrup (its fat free, sugar free, carb free and calorie free)
Add the whey protein into a large bowl.
Add the egg white.
Add the diet coke (half a can to start off with)
Mix with a fork and feel out the constancy, if its too think add more diet coke, but add a little at a time.
The diet coke is what gives it the fluffiness and more constancy than a standard protein sludge.
Pop in the Microwave for 2 mins, after 2 mins it should be like a thick mousse.
I put it back in for a further 1.30min to thicken it out and make the edges harder but the middle still gooey.
Add the Peanut/Almond Butter then the Waldens Farm chocolate syrup on top.
Let me know what you think and what added ingredients you used. I’m thinking next time trying vanilla premium whey with cinnamon and Waldens Caramel sauce!
