I LOVE BROWNIES and all things chocolate – and that’s why I bake them. But what I love even more is the fact that I can really elevate brownies and turn them into something healthy by adding nutrient-dense ingredients (without losing taste!)
  • 1 cup Sunflower Seed Butter
  • 4 Bananas
  • ½ cup Cocoa Powder
  • ½ cup Chocolate Protein Powder
  • ½ cup Organic Dark Chocolate Chips
  • ½ cup Pumpkin seeds (chopped)
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line a cake or loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a small saucepan over low-medium heat, melt the sunflower seed butter.
  3. In a mixing bowl, mash the bananas, cocoa powder, and protein powder and seed butter until
    combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  4. Pour into pan, sprinkle with pumpkin seeds and bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let
    cool completely before serving.
Bonus cooking tips!
- I recommend doubling the recipe and freezing the second batch because they won’t last long and they freeze well.
- If you want to omit the protein powder you can try substituting with ground hemp seeds or ground flax seeds.
- If you want to make it sweeter, try adding chopped pitted dates. They are another slow release form of sugar plus you get the added benefit of more magnesium – which is a relaxant.
