Chocolate Protein Brownie Bites

The most absolute perfect brownie!!

Just ignore the fact that it's high protein as you honestly, would.not.know!

It is soft, fluffy, bouncy and so so delicious. What a way to finish of 2020.. in love with a brownie!

You can also make these into muffins! The recipe will make 16 regular sized muffins equalling 75 calories each, or make 8 large brownies at 151 calories with 9.1g of protein

Serves 8 brownies or 16 muffins


  • 1/2 cup wholemeal flour

  • 1/2 cup cacao powder

  • 1/2 cup chocolate whey protein powder (you can swap this for flour or cacao powder, it will just change the protein content of the recipe)

  • 1 tsp bicarb soda

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup (or any liquid sweetener)

  • 1/3 cup vanilla greek yoghurt

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat an oven to 180c.

  2. In a large bowl sift the flour, cacao powder, protein powder, bicarb soda, and salt.

  3. Make a well in the centre of the flour mix and add the milk, maple syrup, yoghurt, egg and vanilla. Mix until combined (it will be quite runny, but don't stress) and pour into a lined square cake tin**

  4. Bake for 16-18 minutes and allow to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling tray

**You can make these into muffins, which makes 16 muffins (don't try to fit the mixture into 12 muffins as they will overflow)
