Guilt free Protein Brownie Recipe

As an Athlete and Coach I Just LOVE combining nutrition with treats!

This snack is perfect to carry around with you in your purse, car and or work-out bag. Use it to refuel as it's a perfect mixture of both carbs for glycogen restore as it is for protein after a tough work-out. Not too big where it replaces a meal but enough to hold your over and fuel your body! Many of you know that I love making these sorts of tasty treats for my husband who loves to both run and do lots of muscle work!  Not only is this a perfect balance of protein, carbs but it's all loaded with fiber great for keeping full and aiding in healthy digestion. The flaxseed adds in a great omega 3 punch to help keep you alert and fresh in your day!


  • Can of rinsed Organic Black Beans and minced with 2 tblsp of Almond Milk
  • 2/3 cups of Agave 
  • 2 tblsp of flaxseed meal
  • 2 tblsp of special dark cocoa
  • 4 scoops of the Raw Protein from Garden of Life
  • 2 whole eggs 
  • 1 tblsp of  vanilla

Combine ingredients and then spread onto a lightly buttered/oiled 5x7 pan and bake at 350 for 20minutes (before burns and the top will take a solid look)

I've used Garden of Life's Chocolate Cocoa Raw protein to make this brownie that I know you will definitely enjoy! If it taste's too good and pure to eat alone, then surely add a scoop of low fat ice-cream and a drizzle of chocolate to sweeten the already tasty treat!
