Flourless Protein Brownies
Low calorie protein brownies made without any flour and 9g protein!
This recipe is sponsored by my favorite protein powder brand, Organifi
These brownies are a game changer!
I’ve already made them a few times this week… and I thought it would be kinda cruel not to share. 🙂
I’m never going back to regular brownies after there- they are perfect for me!
These brownies are rich and chocolatey, but still super healthy and easy to make- win win!
These gluten free brownies are naturally sweetened without any refined sugar.
I made them from chickpeas, Organifi protein powder, cocoa powder, maple syrup, and almond butter.
They are super easy to make and way more delicious than you would think!
This recipe is my new go-to brownie recipe… or any dessert recipe for that matter!
The center of the brownies are nice and fudgey and thick like a real brownies and the outsides are kinda cakey and crisp… mmmm, perfect!
Needless to say, I’m obsessed!
Why I’m obsessed with these brownies
I have been obsessed Organifi Organic protein powder, so I wanted to share it with you, because you are missing out.
Honestly, I feel amazingly satisfied and fueled after drinking this protein drink in the morning and I love it so much I have to limit myself to only one serving a day…
Otherwise, I would eat it with every meal just because I love it so much and it tastes so good lol!
Don’t come at me, until you try it. 🙂
What better way to share one of my favorite things than add it to one one of my other favorite things: brownies.
Side note: even my friends who despise the taste of all protein powders love this one!
So I keep it around, because it is the only protein powder I’ve tried that actually tastes absolutely amazing with just water!
… It’s like drinking brownies and if that doesn’t fit the bill, I don’t know what does. 🙂
These brownies may not be your traditional butter and sugar brownies, but trust me, you won’t even care once you try them.
They also store amazing in the freezer or in a food safe container in the fridge.
I always feel fueled and happy after eating these brownies and no sugar bonk!

Can I sub almond butter with peanut butter or tahini?
Hi Nina, peanut butter would probably work best.
Could I use just cocoa powder instead of the protein powder ?
Hi Cecilia, you can omit the protein powder if you don’t have any and just don’t add extra cocoa, because it will make it too bitter. 🙂 They still turn out- I have made them that way in a pinch!
Hello, is it alright to use honey or rice malt syrup in place of maple? Thanks
Hi Regina, that should work- the flavor will be different though.
What would be the best substitute for maple syrup, as I have never liked the taste of it?
Honey is a great substitution as well as molasses or agave nectar.
Hi! Is it okay to not put any sweetener or maple syrup because my chocolate chips are already too sweet? Thanks!
Yes of course 🙂 If the batter seems dry, (syrup adds a bit of liquid) just add a bit of milk (regular or dairy-free).
What is the calorie breakdown by ingredient? I made this with the same recipe but substituted PB for for almond butter and Weldon farms syrup for maple syrup. I set it to serve 9 people and it says each serving is 160 calories. I don’t understand how, if I cut calories out of two ingredients.
I don’t have the calorie breakdown by ingredient, sorry!
Can I use sprouted chickpeas?
That should work Faye!
