Raw Protein Brownies

I absolutely love brownies. I've posted a few other brownie recipes here before, one being a traditional fudgy brownie made with red fife flour, and the second was a no bake brownie made mainly from cocoa powder, dates, and walnuts.

I have many more brownie recipes to come as well, both healthier versions and just for fun, straight up treat-time.

What can I say? I'm a massive fan.

These brownies are gluten-free, sweetener-free, and are PACKED full of nutrition. They've got:

  • Fibre (that's 6.8 grams per square)
  • Protein (also 6 grams. Not bad for a healthy brownie!)
  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • & Antioxidants

They also have an irresistible super-soft texture. Make them and you'll know exactly what I mean.

This really is a no-fuss recipe, it's so simple. Just a hanful of ingredients and your food processor. There's no baking involed. Toss all the ingredients into your food processor (or high speed blender) and blend for about 1 minute or until a nice soft dough. Press into a pan or shape the into brownie squares and refrigerate...or eat them straight away! Done + done.

Just be sure to use a good protein powder that you really enjoy the taste of. I can't stress this enough. If you don't like the taste of the powder you likely won't enjoy the taste of what you are baking.

Keywords: food processor raw snack dessert gluten-free protein soy-free sugar-free vegetarian vegan option cacao powder dates protein powder almond milk bars brownies


Ingredients (4 small brownies)


Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend into a soft dough.

Press the dough into the corner of a square baking pan. We're using the baking pan to form the dough into 1 large square (about 1 inch in thickness) that can be cut into 4 individual brownies. The dough will not fill the whole pan. Alternatively, you can divide your dough into 4 balls and then press into squares.

Place in the fridge for about 30 minutes before slicing if using the baking pan method.

Keep stored in the fridge in an airtight container or wrapped individually in foil.


To make vegan just sub out the whey protein powder for your favourite vegan vanilla protein.

Chocolate Brownies


Best Ever Chocolate Brownies

Sorry for yelling but these are one of the most moist fudgy style brownies you'll ever make. Please do me one really big favour and make these for dessert this weekend. I promise, fingers crossed, you will not be disappointed.

Every kitchen repertoire needs to have a solid recipe for scratch brownies and this is mine. You know those special treat nights when you've just got to have something chocolatey for dessert? One of these will certainly do the trick. And don't forget the vanilla bean ice cream. Mmm, Brownie a la mode.

Chocolate Brownies

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Until recently I've only ever made these delights with none other than all-purpose flour. Albeit unbleached but still refined and white. Yes it has it's place in the kitchen for certain occasional purposes, but I wanted to see if I could make a change for a slightly healthier perspective. Hey a brownie is a brownie and it's still dessert. Anyway, taking a leap of faith that it would work, I swapped the super refined all-purpose flour out for one of my favourites, whole grain red fife. Locally from Peterborough Ontario, it's Canada's oldest wheat discovered by David Fife. It's quite nutritious too.

Time for a mini history lesson!

Lang Grist Mill: Red Fife Flour

When I was younger we got to visit my family often in Peterborough since my dad grew up there. There was this one time when we took a trip to the historic Lang Grist Mill; the site where David Fife first started grinding red fife wheat into flour. The mill is part of the Lang Pioneer Village from the early 1800's that's still grinding red fife wheat into flour to this day.

I'm going to have to get back here one of these days.

David Fife: Lang Grist Mill

A rich decadent chocolate treat that is quick and easy to get in the oven in no time flat. The best part is I couldn't even tell that I used red fife flour instead of all-purpose. 

Your family will go crazy for these.

The best Brownies from scratch

Best Ever Chocolate Brownies (makes 16, 2-inch squares)

Print or Email This Recipe


  • 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1/4 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup red fife flour (you may also use all-purpose if you prefer it or can't find red fife)
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350*F. Grease and flour an 8x8 inch baking pan.
  2. Melt the chocolate and butter using a bain marie (place the chocolate + butter in a heat-proof bowl and place over a snug fitting saucepan of simmering water, but don't let the bowl touch the water). Stir consistently until melted. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the brown sugar and vanilla to the chocolate mix and stir to combine. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour and baking powder, add to the chocolate batter, and mix well.
  5. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 30-35 minutes, until the center is almost firm to the touch and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Let cool in the pan. Cut and serve.

**Note** To bring your eggs to room temperature just gently place them in a bowl and cover with hot tap water. Let them sit in the water for 2 minutes and remove.
