Holy Delicious Mint Chocolate Chip Fudge protein Brownies

protein brownieIf you are anything like me then there is no way you can only eat one brownie.  I LOVE them..All they chocolatey goodness…especially warm from the oven.  Ok, I’m now salivating!  So when I stumbled upon this recipe I figured I would give it a go.  A brownie recipe that incorporates a frosting and mint chip!  Double Bonus!! Although some of the ingredients don’t match up to your “typical” brownie I promise that they do not disappoint.  So without further ado the Mint Chocolate Chip Fudge Protein Brownie:

What do I need:  First you need to make the Protein Brownies

– 1/2 cup. cacao powder
– 1/4 cup arrowroot
– 1/4 cup coconut flour
-1 tsp. baking soda
– 1tsp. baking powder
– 1 egg
– 2 tsp. peppermint extract
– 1/2 cup applesauce
– 1/2 cup coconut nectar
– 1/2 cup hot water 

Now what?

Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix together, end with adding hot water. Batter will be thick runny. Spread protein bar batter into a lightly coconut oil greased 11×7 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
– As bars cool, make up frosting. Then spread onto brownie protein bars and top with mint frosting and chocolate chips
– Cut into 16-18 slices.  Store in refrigerator…if you have any leftover!

What do I need for the frosting?

– 1 1/2 bananas
– 1/2 cup coconut butter
-6 tbsp. coconut oil
-1 tbsp. vanilla extract
