Chocolate Covered Strawberry Protein Brownies

  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup Whey Chocolate Protein Powder
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • sweetener of choice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar free chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup strawberries
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 8x8 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Place oats in blender and blend for a minute or until they resemble the consistency of flour. Transfer oat flour to medium bowl then whisk in protein powder and cocoa powder; set aside.
  3. Whisk together applesauce, egg, sweetener, vanilla and almond milk until smooth and well combined. Add to dry ingredients and mix together until just combined.
  4. Heat coconut oil and 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips in a small saucepan over very low heat; stir continuously until all chocolate chips and coconut oil have melted together. Gently stir into brownie bar batter.
  5. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips and strawberries on top; sometimes I like to swirl them in the batter with a knife. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until just cooked through and the top has set. Transfer pan to wire rack to cool completely. Once cool, cut into 12 bars -- please note that bars should be kept covered in the refrigerator and enjoyed cold!
