(Low Calorie High Protein) Orion™ Nutella Brownie
Once upon a time, there was a fitness enthusiast named Adonis who loved nothing more than hitting the gym and lifting weights. However, he also had a sweet tooth and enjoyed indulging in decadent desserts from time to time. One day, Adonis decided to try his hand at creating a healthier dessert that would satisfy his cravings while also supporting his fitness goals. And so, his Chocolate Protein Powder Brownies were born.
Chocolate Nutella Protein Powder Brownies
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup Orion Chocolate Nutella protein powder
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup honey (or 1:1 replacement Stevia, Erythritol, etc.)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips, melted (optional but not really)
Preheat your oven to 350°F and line a 9x9 inch baking dish with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, chocolate protein powder, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Mix well to combine.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the honey, applesauce, eggs, and vanilla extract until smooth.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
If desired, fold in the melted dark chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and smooth it out into an even layer.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Let the brownies cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
These Nutella Chocolate Protein Powder Brownies are a delicious and satisfying dessert that Adonis loves to enjoy after a tough workout. With the added protein and delicious taste from the Nutella protein powder, he feels good about indulging in a sweet treat that also supports his fitness goals.
