This recipe is 100% for all of you out there that are working so hard to make certain fitness goals. I’m still playing catch up from battling Hyperemesis last year which means that I’ve got weight to gain back (who says that after a pregnancy?) and a whole lot of muscle to bring back as so much atrophied from being so ill. So I’m trying to do that and others are trying to lose weight or firm things up a bit so these healthy brownies, or healthier I should say, are for you, and me.

 

Why is Coconut Oil Good For You?

Coconut oil contains natural saturated fats that increase the good HDL cholesterol in your body.

They may also help turn the bad LDL cholesterol into a less harmful form.

By increasing HDL, many experts believe that coconut oil could be good for heart health compared to many other fats.

Ok they are even more for Cade than for me. I love a special treat on the weekend but Cade does even more. When he’s trying to be healthy he is really strict about getting in good foods and protein multiple times a day. These brownies are the perfect way for him to get in a little dessert and protein is included.

 

Which Coconut Oil Should You Use for Cooking?

Unrefined coconut oil has a strong “coconutty” flavor and aroma, which is great to use in your recipes if you’re a fan of that profile.

If not, go for the refined coconut oil, which is extremely neutral in both taste and aroma.

We got to use Burt’s Bees™ new protein shake powder and it was perfect in this recipe because it’s really silky and there isn’t any grit to it so it blended just like flour would but it’s a plant based protein powder so you get extra nutrition from it.

How do  You Know When Brownies Are Done?

The most often used technique is to stick a toothpick in the center right around the time your recipe says it should be done.

If it comes out clean, it’s done.

If there are any traces of uncooked batter, let it continue baking for another few minutes and repeat the process until the toothpick comes out clean.

Start out by sifting your dry ingredients and beating together the coconut oil and sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla then finally the dry ingredients and you’ve got yourself brownie batter in 5 minutes flat. Bake them up for 40 minutes at a lower temperature so there’s time to cook through the protein powder and then serve warm or allow to cool for easier slicing!

  1. Is there a substitute I can instead of eggs?

    • Applesauce can be used to replace eggs, but we’ve never tried it so we can’t promise the same results. The substitution is 1/4 c of applesauce for every egg. We would love to hear how it turns out!!

  2. Can you use a different protein?

    • Any protein will work but not all protein powders are as good for you and some taste rather chalky so we tend to stick with a brand for those reasons. 🙂

  3. I recently saw that BUrt’s Bees came out with protein powder and I am soooo intrigued by this new development of theirs!

  4. Oh the fudgy-ness and gooeyness of these brownies look UNREAL! So stoked that they are high in protein!
