Protein Hazelnut Brownies

These are to die for... you know I love my baking and wanted to share some healthy protein pre or post workout snacks or just snacks to keep you fuelled for the day.

I used the GoodGuru  Muscle and Tone protein, which by the way is amazing and so tasty! The reason why I love it is because, number 1 of course the taste, it can be used as a pre or post workout, it has electrolytes in and has fast/slow release protein so perfect on its own or to get creative with in the kitchen.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 scoops protein powder
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 200g dark chocolate
  • 1/4 cup crushed hazelnuts

Method

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line a brownie dish.  These will only take around 15-17 minutes as you don't want to over do them.

Whizz up the eggs until they are fluffy and pop the chocolate dish on the hob to start melting.

Mix together the baking powder, protein powder, cocoa powder and half of the crushed hazelnuts (i whizzed these up in my nutribullet) then add in the eggs and almond milk.  Once the chocolate has melted pop this in too and you should have delicious gooey mix (taste testing is essential) You can add a dash of honey if they are too bitter butI didn't need to!!

Transfer to the dish, sprinkle the rest of the hazelnuts on top and pop in the oven - keep an eye on them as they will cook faster than normal brownies.

Once they are done take out of the oven and allow to cool...

I had several taste testers of these in which they all went back for seconds so I hope you love them as much as I do!
