Protein Brownie Bites

Super easy Brownie bites with a little protein! Done in under 30 minutes from start to finish. Not too sweet and a great way to curb your craving!

So a super quick recipe today as I am getting a lot of stuff ready to be posted! I made these on a whim one night, and they turned out really good! So I had to share. They’re more of a brownie with protein than a protein brownie coming in with 2 grams of protein per bite. If you really want to up the protein, replace the Cocoa with another Tablespoon of protein powder.

They’re nothing like a true full guilt fudgy brownie, but they’re a little dense, not cakey, and still moist. Not too sweet, a nice balance. Reduce cooking time by a couple minutes (Toothpick comes out slightly dirty) for a fudgier brownie. 

It is just as follows.

  3. Melt your coconut oil or butter and mix in the sugar very well.

Fudgy Dark Chocolate Brownies

Easy Fudgy Brownies for your Valentine!



Now there is not much more I like than a super fudgy brownie, add in dark chocolate, and you got me hooked. I made these for valentines day, my little gift for this first year of being married. He says he’s not a sweets person, but he could eat a whole batch of these. So definitely husband approved.

Now there is team fudgy and cakey with brownies. My mom is team cakey, a misconception with fudgy brownies is that they are under cooked, false. it is a combination of using a little bit of oil and brown sugar, and also to not over mix the batter when you add in the dry ingredients.

The ingredients are very simple, you probably have all you need in your kitchen right now. Brown and white sugar, butter, vanilla, cocoa powder, flour, eggs, and a mild oil. That’s it.

Now onto the recipe.

Fudgy Dark Chocolate Brownie

  • Difficulty: Easy

A fudgy delicious brownie that is super easy to make and is sure to cure that sweet tooth.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 C. butter (Melted)
  • 1 TBSP mild oil (I used coconut, but feel free to use vegetable or canola.)
  • 1/2 C. dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 C. white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 AP flour
  • 1/2 C. cocoa powder (Preferably dutched)

Directions



  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Mix the sugars, butter, and oil together very well, for about a minute.

3. Add in vanilla and eggs, one egg at a time, whipping it until it is light in color and “fluffier.”

4. Sift the flour and cocoa powder in (also if you have any additional mix-ins put them in now) Mix until just combined, you should have a very thick batter.

5. Grease a pan, you can use really any, I used an 8×8, use a larger dish for thinner brownies. Also cast iron skillets are good to use.

6. Bake until the center is just barely jiggling, about 25 minutes, about 20 for thinner brownies.

7. Let cool for about an hour then cut and enjoy!



Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This is another one of those things I never used to like growing up, for some reason or another. Everyone around me loved banana bread, but with nuts. Now I am not a big fan of nuts in desserts, but chocolate, I can get on board with that.

This is a pretty simple recipe, But the brown sugar in it gives it that caramely delicious taste that I know many people love. In my home we ALWAYS have bananas, and I buy a lot, for things like banana pancakes and of course banana bread, I usually have a pile for bananas to eat, and bananas for baking. I dare you to count how many times I wrote banana so far in this post.

Now onto this foolproof and amazing recipe!

Perfect Pumpkin Bread

A soft and fluffy pumpkin bread that will give you all of the fall vibes anytime of year. With cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. You can not go wrong.

After many trials and errors, many mistakes and lessons learned, I have come up with the ultimate Pumpkin Bread recipe. It is fluffy, moist, and pretty much heaven in your mouth. The key to getting it fluffy is making sure you whip the butter/sugar/egg mixture. We’ll get to that though. I’ve also found the texture of half cake flour and half All Purpose flour to be Superior. Although if you have no cake flour on hand or can’t find any, using just all purpose works well too. Now onto the recipe.
