Nourish your skin and your body while satisfying your sweet tooth with these healthy vegan chocolate protein brownies!
4 medium-sized overripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup almond flour
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter (the looser the better)
2 tbsp cacao powder
3/4 cup Raw Beauty Lab Chocolate Protein and Collagen Booster
1/3 cup chocolate chips (optional but highly recommended)
1 tbsp vanilla extract
Small pinch sea salt
Preheat the oven to 180 C/350 F and lightly grease a square 8-inch brownie tin with a little oil or vegan butter.
Add the mashed banana, peanut butter and vanilla extract to a small mixing bowl and mix until properly combined. If the mixture is very thick, add a splash of nut milk to loosen slightly.
Next, add the almond flour, chocolate protein powder, cacao powder and salt to a large mixing bowl and mix together.
Then add the wet mixture to the large mixing bowl and mix together until everything is thoroughly combined. Then fold in the chocolate chips.
Pour the brownie batter in the greased baking tin and spread to ensure the layer is even throughout the tin and place in the oven.
Bake for around 30 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean and then remove from the oven and allow to cool. Slice into small squares and enjoy!
