Recipe: Fudgy Protein Brownies

Fudgy Protein Brownies


  • 50g Proteus Nutrition Chocolate Lava Cake WHEY Protein Powder
  • 20g Flour
  • 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 50g Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 50g Granulated Sugar
  • 50g Light Brown Sugar
  • 100g Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 2 Eggs
  • 170g Unsalted Butter (Melted)
  • 1 tsp Coffee
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract


Preheat the oven to 170°C. Begin by sifting cocoa powder into warm, melted
butter and whisk to mix evenly. This blooms the cocoa powder, intensifying the
chocolate flavour and making your brownies extra decadent! In a large mixing
bowl, combine the melted butter, coffee, vanilla extract, granulated and light
brown sugar. Then, whisk in the eggs. (Warning: Allow the melted butter to cool
before adding the eggs to prevent them from cooking in the batter).

Next, sift together Proteus Nutrition Chocolate Lava Cake WHEY Protein
Powder, flour, and salt, and fold to incorporate into the wet ingredients. Just
before the dry ingredients are fully incorporated, add in the chocolate chips and
fold a few more times until no streaks of flour can be seen and chocolate chips
are evenly distributed in the batter.

Line a baking pan with baking paper to prevent the brownies from sticking.
Then pour in the brownie batter and spread evenly. Bake the brownies for
approximately 25 minutes. To ensure that your brownies come out fudgy, gently
press down on the centre of the brownie. It should feel slightly soft, but set.
Take it out of the oven and let cool. To serve, cut a generous slice of brownie
and sprinkle with sea salt flakes to bring out the richness of the chocolate,
making these brownies that much more irresistible!
