Deconstructing Protein Brownie Casein Filled Towers

Growing up, no one ever told me that I shouldn’t play with my food. Why shouldn’t one play with one’s food if, at the end, it will be more exciting to eat it? This recipe right here, well… it’s an example of why playing with your food should be encouraged ;-) It all started with a bunch of protein brownies. They turned out really nicely-textured and the batter was delicious but, when they were out, I felt they looked a bit unexciting, just like regular brown brownies. I wanted to add a something to them. Protein fluff? Nah.. Protein ice cream? Nah… Casein? Casein? Casein. Chocolate casein! This is what I did:


1/8 cup cocoa
1 tablespoon hemp seeds (optional)
1/2 cup egg whites
1/2 cup cooked adzuki beans (could use cooked black beans instead, no problem)
1/4 cup pea protein

1/8 cup chocolate hemp protein
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 cup brown rice protein
ON choco casein


1. Blend all ingredients and bake for about 35 minutes at 150 celsius.

2. Slice brownies into rectangular building blocks and build a tower by layering them with casein and water.

3. Then, bulldoze the tower with your fork and individually transform each floor into a sandwich.

Macros per Serving (out of 8):

Without casein:
12g protein5.8g carbos (1.2g sugar/2.3g fiber)
2.5g fat

To then kick it up even further, I added some almond butter to the individual sandwiches and… *gulp*… son of Cronus… ufff… AAA!!! A serious: 5/5. What a ridiculously unbelievably delicious way to break the fast…. For the ‘filling’/’topping’/’frosting’ I just used one heaping scoop of chococasein miked with water. C’est tout. The above yielded 8 brownies which I then took apart and mixed with the casein etc etc. I must add too that they go with almond butter like milk goes with cookies, mmmm!!!

    This looks yummy! I don’t have chocolate casein, only whey. Do you think I could use that and yield the same results?

    My hemp protein powder is plain flavor. What should I add to make these as delicious as yours look….
    Do I add more cocoa with some Stevia. I am not sure but I have a whole tub to use up in all your recipes….
    I love this site by the way.

    Hiiii sorry it took me a while to write back!

    Jennifer – try whey but I don’t know if it will work as well to be honest since whey tends to leave things kind of rubbery and dry… maybe try whey and add a cooked sweet potato in there to offset the overwheyness? but i’m not too sure it’ll be the same same :-/

    Marla – thanks for liking the site :-))) as for the choco hemp, just add cocoa to the hemp and stevia. My chocolate hemp protein is just that, well, it’s cocoa, hemp protein, and sucralose :-)
