Sometimes, only brownies will do. And when that’s the case, you don’t have to stray from your nutrition plan completely. These protein chocolate brownies include Klean Isolate (Natural Chocolate Flavor), and they’re free from gluten.
A balanced protein brownie can make a tasty, nutritious alternative to an energy bar, helping to make sure your body is still getting everything it needs, so you can continue to perform at your peak.
Why Klean Isolate Whey Protein Powder?
Klean Isolate Protein Powder is made with everything you need, and nothing you don’t. Like all Klean Athlete supplements, it’s NSF Certified for Sport®, which means it’s been through third-party testing processes to ensure the quality and purity of raw ingredients and has been certified as free from banned substances.
Our Klean Isolate formula is also available in Unflavored and Vanilla options and is designed to provide your body with the essential amino acids it needs for building muscle. Protein is key for muscle-building and is key for supporting the health, wellbeing and performance of any athlete.‡
Our whey protein powders are ideal for using in a post-workout protein shake, but they can also be used in baking recipes, such as this one for Klean protein chocolate brownies.
1 cup oat flour (or blend old-fashioned oats in a food processor to make your own)
½ cup dark chocolate chips (either as they come, or melted)
½ cup chopped nuts
½ tsp peppermint extract
1 tbsp peanut (or other nut) butter
1 scoop of protein vanilla ice cream
Preheat the oven to 160°C.
Spray an eight-inch square cake tin with cooking spray and lightly dust with flour to prevent sticking.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir together the oat flour, cocoa powder, protein powder, salt and bicarbonate of soda.
In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, oil and apple sauce. If you’re using chocolate chips, nuts or peppermint extract, add these at this point.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring together gently.
Pour the mixture into the cake tin and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
Leave to cool, then top with the nut butter or ice cream to serve if desired.
