Peanut Butter Vegan Protein Brownies

Protein Brownies Vegan

I’ll be honest with you: I wasn’t too impressed when these brownies came out of the oven. I felt they were a bit… beh. I put it down to having used chickpeas as opposed to the regular canned black beans I use to make brownies (check out this recipe for gooey black bean brownies). But you know what? They were delicious after having spent the night in the fridge! Some cakes/cheesecakes/brownies are like that – give them time to cool and POW! They turn from beh to WOOPA! I’ve had two of these brownies with my mid-afternoon cup of tea the past three and they hit the spot beautifully. So, without further ado, the recipe:

Recipe Notes

I have been using these drops lately; they're great! (They're here in the US). Not as bitter as other brands I've tried. You can get them here in the US. Pretty mild in flavor, as long as you add them in moderation of course! If you don't want to use stevia drops, feel free to use your sweetener of choice instead.

PS: I’m still going to make a black bean vegan version of these brownies and share with you THAT recipe. I’m thinking to keep the ingredients almost exactly the same as the ones for the brownies here but obviously using black beans instead of chickpeas. My thoughts are that they’ll come out softer and more… chocolate. Let’s see, shall we? Stay tuned!
