Healthy Fudgy Chocolate Protein Brownies



Brownie Batter

  • 1 and 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips, separated into two different bowls (I used Hershey’s-nothing fancy)
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (I love LouAnna brand-plus it’s cheaper)
  • 1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt (I love Fage brand)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (brown sugar also works well since they have similar tastes)
  • 1/4 cup MRM Natural Whey Protein in chocolate. (Grab 40% off your entire order with code SIA at www.mrm-usa.com)
  • 1/2 cup oat flour (you can make your own oat flour by blending oats in a food processor or blender-make sure to measure after blending though**)

Optional Chocolate Glaze

  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened vanilla almond milk (other types of milk work fine as well)
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 9×9 pan with wax paper or grease with coconut oil.
  2. In a bowl place 1 cup of chocolate chips.
  3. Microwave the coconut oil and measure the coconut oil when it is melted.
  4. Pour the hot melted coconut oil over the dark chocolate and stir the chocolate until it is completely melted.
  5. Add in the Greek yogurt. Stir in the vanilla, salt, baking soda, and coconut sugar.
  6. Blend your oats, if needed. Add the flour into the chocolate mixture.
  7. Now add in the remaining chips and spread the thick batter into a 9×9 pan.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick or knife comes out clean. Be sure to check often during this time as protein powder recipes tend to become dry if over-baked.
  9. Remove from heat & let cool. I like to keep these in the fridge!

Optional Glaze (not so healthy, but better than most options)

  1. Combine 1/2 cup chocolate chips in a bowl with milk and microwave for 20 seconds at a time until completely melted. Be sure to stir the chocolate after each go around.
  2. Stir in the Greek yogurt and then whisk in the powdered sugar.
  3. Start with 3/4 a cup and add as needed, cover in an air tight container, and then refrigerate for an hour.
  4. Remove from the fridge and cover the brownies with the glaze.
  5. Cut into 9-12 pieces and enjoy.


So yummy & fudgy!
