Protein Fudge Brownies

by Dr. Daamini Shrivastav

June 1, 2015

Took me 2 attempts to figure and perfect this one ! The first two failed attempts were nuts. Literally, nuts!

I used walnuts and hazelnuts and they didn’t quite do the trick but Almonds…ah beautiful almonds … They were the jelly to this peanut-butter of a recipe 🙂

What makes these brownie cakes, without mincing of words, KICKASS, are the nutritional benefits :

    • Calories per cake : 126
    • Refined sugar free!
    • Gluten-free!
    • Oil & butter free!
    • 6 g of protein per cake
    • 4g of natural sugars per cake
    • Rich in vitamins, essential elements, antioxidants, monounsaturated fats and fibre


  • What are you waiting for ? Go whip up your own batch and don’t ever feel guilty again for enjoying fudge brownie cakes !

Servings - 12

Time : 30 Mins

Ingredients 1 1/4 cup of almond powder or almond meal (you can make this at home by throwing almonds into a processor and blitzing till they resemble a fine powder) 1 1/2 very ripe bananas 3/4 tsp of baking soda 10 large seedless dates 3 tbsp of low fat yoghurt (this makes the batter really moist. Substitute with soy yoghurt for dairy sensitivities) 1/2 cup unsweetened cacao powder 45g of choice chocolate protein powder (I used Smart Fitness Athlete powder because it’s low-cal and all-natural) goji berries to sprinkle on top     Directions 1. Pre-heat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius 2. In a bowl mix well the cacao powder, almond powder, chocolate protein powder and baking soda. 3. In a food processor, blitz together the bananas, dates and yoghurt to make a moist gooey paste. 4. Tip the banana-date-yoghurt paste into the bowl of dry ingredients and mix by hand till it resembles fudge-y cake batter like this 5. Spoon the batter into cupcake cases. The recipe makes 12. Sprinkle some goji berries or even nuts if you prefer atop the cakes and bake in the over for 18-20 minutes. … and you are welcome! :]
