Not so Cheeky Chocolate Protein Brownies

Ange: Satisfy your sweet tooth with these delicious healthy crap-free protein brownies. Full of real whole-food ingredients, no nasties in sight. Traditional brownies are made with refined sugar and wheat flour which as you know we aren’t fans of and cause a whole lot of health problems if over-consumed. So why not make brownies that you can have everyday!


  • 1 ½ cups black beans
  • 1 large bananas (I use a defrosted frozen banana)
  • 3 Tbsp Organic Cacao powder
  • 1 scoop 180 Natural Protein Superfood Coconut (vegan)
  • 8 Medjool dates
  • 3 Tbsp desiccated coconut
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans or walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
  2. Take seed out of dates and place in a bowl topped with boiling water
  3. Soak dates for 5mins and drain
  4. Line baking tin with baking paper
  5. Place all ingredients in food processor and process
  6. The mixture should be smooth and come together
  7. Add chopped pecans or walnuts
  8. Pour mixture into tin
  9. Bake for approximately 25 mins or until a skewer comes out clean.
