Vegan Chocolate Chunk Protein Brownies
These brownies are protein packed, gluten free and totally vegan. No eggs, no dairy, no added oil, no refined sugar, no grains - just a nice amount of chocolate and nut butter! They’re so fudgy and delicious you won’t miss your regular brownie recipe. I love them straight out of the fridge the best, they’re just so super good cold!
Serves: 9 large brownies
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line an 8-inch square pan with a sheet of parchment paper, leaving some overhang over each side.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the almond butter, applesauce, maple syrup and vanilla.
  3. In a small bowl set over a saucepan of barely simmering water, melt ½ cup of the chocolate chunks.
  4. Pour the melted chocolate into the almond butter mixture and whisk vigorously to incorporate.
  5. Add the protein powder, cocoa powder, coconut flour, baking soda and salt and whisk to combine until completely smooth.
  6. The batter should be thick, slightly fluffy and free of any dry lumps of powders or nut butter.
  7. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth out evenly with a spatula.
  8. Sprinkle over the remaining ¼ cup of chocolate chunks and gently press them into place.
  9. Bake for 25 minutes until the top feels almost firm and the edges are a little bit cracked.
  10. These will slice neatly with adequate chilling time. Let cool in the pan for at least 15 minutes before serving. Best enjoyed cold, straight out of the fridge and will keep well in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
