Fudgy Flourless Hemp Protein Brownies

Easy protein packed yet delicious brownies


  • 2 / 200g ripe bananas
  • 60g / 2 oz apple sauce or avocado
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 50g / 1 dl / 7 tbsp hemp protein*
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • A pinch of salt
  • A splash vanilla essence
  • Optionally 20g chopped chocolate, chocolate chips, cacao nibs, nuts or seeds of choice


  1. Preheat the oven to 175ºC and prepare a brownie/cake pan or nine to twelve muffin cases.
  2. Simply mix all the ingredients, except for the chocolate, smooth in a food processor or first mix the banana and apple sauce smooth with a handstand mixer and then stir in the rest ingredients.
  3. Divide the batter between the muffin cases or just transfer to your prepared pan. Optionally top with for example chocolate, cacao nibs, nuts, seeds, nut- or seed butter and bake for 15 minutes or until a tooth pick runs clean. Take out, let cool slightly, cut up and enjoy.


*I have tried using pea protein and it turned out almost as good. Slightly more gooey and not as brownie like but still edible.
