Chocolate Zucchini Protein Brownies

I had a ripe banana sitting around and decided to throw a few things together. I just love when something turns out just like I wanted. It's super satisfying. Today, it was Chocolate Zucchini Protein Brownies. Yes, Zucchini. Zucchinis are great for baking because they are a low carb vegetable, help keep things moist, and they blend very well with other flavors.

What you'll need:
  • 1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder
  • 1/3 grated zucchini, about 2/3 of a cup
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 packets of raw stevia
  • 1/2 a teaspoon baking powder
  • 5 drops of chocolate SweetLeaf liquid stevia
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
 First, I mashed up the banana in a bowl and thew in the grated zucchini. Then, I added the protein powder, stevia, and coconut flour. After it was well mixed I added the 2 egg whites and finally the liquid stevia.

Preheat oven to 370 degrees and pour batter into a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 25-30 minutes, until you can stick a toothpick in the middle and have it come out clean.

I can not provide nutritional information, as this recipe may vary with your particular protein powder. 



  1. I like the sound of this! Chocolate protein powder is probably the best guilt-free dessert invention ever :) And zucchini in baked goods is magical--healthy, but yeah, you definitely get the extra moistness without any sort of overwhelming "veggie" taste.

  2. hey ... this sounds soooo yummy! think i shall make them tomorrow.. question! can i use brown rice flour instead of coconut flour?? we dont get coconut flour in India :'(
