Chocolate and peanut butter are perhaps one of the best combinations ever discovered in the culinary world. But have you ever known their marriage to be healthy? Would you think a chocolate peanut butter brownie would be good for you? Believe it or not, these decadent protein brownies are a perfect quick breakfast or post workout meal. They have no flour, sugar, or oil and their sweetness comes from bananas so their packed with potassium. These protein brownies have as much nutrients as flavor – trust me that’s saying a lot. — Make them now!
You’ll need 6 very ripe medium length bananas (7-8 inches long). Mash the bananas until mostly smooth. Add in 2/3 cup whey protein concentrate, 1/2 cup powdered peanuts (I use PBFit), 1/2 cup natural smooth peanut butter, and 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder. Stir until well combined. Spread into a generously greased (with nonstick cooking spray) pan. The thinner the batter the less time they need in the oven and the texture will be more like a brownie. I like to use a 8x11x3 glass pan. Bake the brownies at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Brownies should lightly pull away from the side of the pan and no longer jiggle when they are done.
