If you know anything about me then you know that I have a massive sweet tooth! Let’s be real, nothing beats the real thing but if you’re looking to kill your sweet tooth craving then these are a great way to do that. I tried so many different variations before finally making some protein brownies that didn’t taste like dry, old rubber. These little beauties are moist, soft, and delicious. The best part is, you can top them with chocolate chips, ice cream, frosting, yogurt, nuts, whipped cream or anything your heart desires! This recipe is just the base which can be adjusted to your preference.
Let’s start with the base. I put all the ingredients into a mixing bowl first.
You can use the whisk or hand mixer and mix everything together until smooth.
Pour it into an 8×8 baking dish and put it in the oven for 30 minutes at 400°. I usually keep the base the same and add toppings to it when I’m ready to eat it depending on my macros but if you don’t track macros or have room to play around with some more carbs or fats then definitely add some chocolate chips or nuts.
Depending on how large or small you want them, you can cut them up into however many servings you’d like. I usually go with four since these are pretty low in calories and high in protein.
You can make a different brownie bowl every night with these! I love having these topped with peanut butter or ice cream. I often top them with a Dannon Light N Fit Greek Yogurt. If you like coconut at all, make sure you try the Toasted Coconut Vanilla flavor. It’s absolutely delicious!

This is the base recipe for the brownie but you can modify as needed. I often will add extra protein powder if I need a higher protein brownie or if I’m looking to make it more decadent then I will throw in some chocolate chips. I have also added chopped up cherries to the batter for a rich cherry chocolate brownie. There are so many different options so feel free to add whatever toppings you like. This brownie base is so low calorie that it really is a guilt free protein dessert that can be loaded with delicious toppings.
