Protein Fudge Brownies - Conceive gynaecology and fertility hospital sharjah

Took me 2 attempts to figure and perfect this one ! The first two failed attempts were nuts. Literally, nuts!

I used walnuts and hazelnuts and they didn’t quite do the trick but Almonds…ah beautiful almonds …
They were the jelly to this peanut-butter of a recipe  🙂

What are you waiting for ? Go whip up your own batch and don’t ever feel guilty again for enjoying fudge brownie cakes !

 

You will need :

  • 1 1/4 cup of almond powder or almond meal (you can make this at home by throwing almonds into a processor and blitzing till they resemble a fine powder)
  • 1 1/2 very ripe bananas
  • 3/4 tsp of baking soda
  • 10 large seedless dates
  • 3 tbsp of low fat yoghurt (this makes the batter really moist. Substitute with soy yoghurt for dairy sensitivities)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cacao powder
  • 45g of choice chocolate protein powder (I used Smart Fitness Athlete powder because it’s low-cal and all-natural)
  • goji berries to sprinkle on top

 

To make :

1 — Pre-heat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius

2 — In a bowl mix well the cacao powder, almond powder, chocolate protein powder and baking soda.

3 — In a food processor, blitz together the bananas, dates and yoghurt to make a moist gooey paste.

4 — Tip the banana-date-yoghurt paste into the bowl of dry ingredients and mix by hand till it resembles fudge-y cake batter like this
