Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

Vegan Peanut Butter Brownies

Ingredients

For brownies:
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup protein powder (I used SunWarrior)
2/3 cup raw sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 banana
1/2 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup vegan dark chocolate chips

For peanut butter swirl:
1/4 cup creamy all-natural peanut butter
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray mini muffin [1] tin with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, stir the dry ingredients together (flour, protein powder, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt), and set aside.
  • Mash the banana in a large bowl. Stir in the olive oil, one teaspoon vanilla, and chocolate chips.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and mix well (it will be thick).
  • Use a spoon to fill each of the muffin wells just to the top.
  • In a small ceramic bowl, mix the peanut butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla. Pop the bowl in the microwave for 15 to 20 seconds, until slightly softened.
  • Add a dollop of the peanut butter mixture to the top of each brownie bite.
  • Bake for 15 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.
  • Enjoy! Store uneaten brownie bites in an airtight container.
