Units Scale
  • 1 and 1/2 cups mashed overripe banana*
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter (or almond butter)
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup chocolate protein powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 7×7 or 8×8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, add mashed banana, peanut butter, cocoa powder, chocolate protein powder, vanilla extract, and salt. Mix together until evenly combined. Then, add the chocolate chips. Mix together.
  3. Pour brownie batter into the baking dish. Spread across the pan in an even layer. Sprinkle extra chocolate chips on top, if desired.
  4. Bake brownies for 40-45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool inside the pan. Once cooled, gently lift the parchment paper to remove the brownies from the pan. Slice and enjoy!


  • *Use bananas are that overripe. The peels should be soft and yellow with brown spots all over them.
  • Make sure you let the brownies cool completely before slicing. They are ultra fudgy and moist, which makes them delicate while warm.
  • Store brownies inside a sealed container inside the refrigerator. Enjoy within 3-5 days. If saving longterm, store inside the freezer for 1 month.
