Today’s Chocolate Protein Brownies are a really quick recipe! You can find this written on the back of the PHD Chocolate Brownie Protein Powder packet. I’ve looked at it for some time wanting to make it! It contains bananas, cacao powder, peanut butter, and a few more ingredients. Keep reading to find out what!
So you’ll find the ingredients in the recipe card below and I’m pretty sure if you have or drink protein shakes, you’ll have most of these ingredients in the house! We use this protein shake every other day or after exercise and I absolutely love it. It’s really thick and creamy and has the texture of a milkshake. Is it strange to say that some of the others I have tried were really ‘fake’ tasting whereas this is delicious?
Although I think PHD is a great product, I would like to try a cleaner protein powder moving forward. I’ve been reading about two that I recently came across. One called Hermosa which Barry’s Bootcamp uses all over the world and the other one I would love to try is the Super Elixer. These contain extremely high-quality ingredients, but this reflects in the price.
This will be all the ingredients that you’ll need. This has been one of the easiest and quickest brownie recipes i’ve ever made. I always like to use a high quality cacao powder if I’m using it. It has a lot of great health benefits including lowering blood pressure and it can improve the blood flow to your brain! We all need more chocolate in our lives by the sound of it.
I put all my ingredients into my VitaMix. I use my VitaMix daily, it’s been one of the most used appliances in my kitchen. I’m pretty sure if you are looking at a recipe by me, there will be a VitaMix involved somewhere. It blends this mixture completely smooth in seconds.
On the picture below, I drizzled peanut butter on the top of the brownie. If you do this, be sure to mix it through the brownie mix a little.
- 2 Scoops of Chocolate brownie Protein Powder
- 2 x Tablespoons of Cacao Powder
- 1/2 x Cup of Peanut Butter
- 2 x Eggs
- 2 x Bananas
- 1 x Teaspoon Baking Powder
- Firstly, preheat your oven to 190 degrees. Measure out all of your ingredients for a speedy process.
- Once you've done that you're ready to start putting everything into your blender. Add the eggs and banana at the bottom and then the peanut butter, followed by your powders. The more 'LIQUID' ingredients will get things moving.
- Once the mixture is combined together, pour it into a metal pan. Side note, please excuse our old pan, its the only one we had that was suitable for brownies!
- Step 4 isn't a necessity. I drizzled peanut butter onto the top, in hindsight I would if either mixed it through a little or waited until the end to put it on. I don't know whether it's just meridian peanut butter that does this, but ours went all dried out and sizzled looking on the top.
- Put in your brownie mixture for 12-15 minutes depending on your oven. Once out, allow 5 minutes to cool.

Chocolate Protein Brownies – The Final Outcome
This was the final outcome, it was actually Tom who dressed the brownies and took this picture. How amazing did it come out? They tasted really nice but a lot more healthy than your traditional brownies. He put some of my candied nuts on the top and I made some coconut caramel drizzle a few days back so he added some of that too to finish of the chocolate protein brownies.
