So I came across this site the other day that provided some pretty interesting and cool fitness recipes. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE brownies (I have a strong sweet tooth)! When I saw these protein chocolate brownies, I thought it’d be perfect to share on fitness Fridays! What?! Dessert and fitness positively put together in the same sentence?! Yup,  I said it. Although, I’m sure they probably don’t taste as yummy as a fudge brownie, but it’s worth a try. The site has other cool recipes to check out too. I haven’t tried them yet, but I definitely plan to as soon as we move. Try them out and let me know what you think! I hope they taste as good as they look! Let us know if these are a yay or nay!

Ingredients (6 servings = 12 brownies):- 250 g quark cheese (ricotta or natural yogurt is also a good alternative. You can use cottage cheese, but this will affect the taste) – 200 g egg Whites (+-6 egg Whites), beaten

- 20 g cocoa powder
- 75 g protein powder chocolate flavour (I used 50 % whey and 50 % (micelar) casein)
Depending on the texture you want you can use only whey or casein.  Whey will give it a more dry texture and casein a more moist texture. Taste will mostly depend on the brand of protein powder you use.
- optional: spices like cinnamon, chilli,….

- Pre heat an oven at 180°C – Mix all ingredients together
- Put the mixture in a cake tin (sprayed with cooking spray)
