Angela: Another great healthy recipe, this is a protein-packed, superfood take on the common raw brownie. Great as a snack, dessert or a quick breakfast meal when busy and in a pinch.

Ingredients (Makes 8-10 squares)

  • 1/2 cup 180 Natural Protein Superfood (coconut)
  • 5 tbsp Cacao powder
  • 4 tbsp Organic shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp Rice malt syrup
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup Coconut oil (enough to bind well/moisten)
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan salt

Mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl. Place in a baking tray lined with baking paper. Freeze for an hour.


  • 1/4-1/2 cup Coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp Cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp Cashews
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla powder


Blend all ingredients well. Pour over base. Freeze. Defrost half an hour prior to consumption.

Big thanks to Naturopath Lynda Griparic for the recipe.

Belinda says:

Thanks Lynda, that’s great, will give the cacao butter a try 🙂

Belinda says:

Just wondering if there is a good substitute for coconut oil ?

Hi Belinda you could try melting Cacao butter and using this instead of coconut oil. Or if you do not mind adding more natural sugar to this recipe soaked medjool dates would work.

Pauline Smithers says:

Just to bre clear is that 1/2 a cup or 1/2 a scoop of 180 protein

Guy Lawrence says:

That’s 1/2 cup Pauline.

Janine says:

What would the carb count be for 1 of these?

Guy Lawrence says:

HI Janine. We don’t have the carb count. The carb content will depend on the size of your slices. If you want to know the carb content, I’d suggest you count the overall carb content of the size of the brownie you make, and then divide into the number of slices you want to meet your carb needs.

Hope that helps.
