High Protein Cosmic Brownie with Protein Frosting

Posted on Posted in Gluten free, Low Calorie, Macro Friendly, Recipes

This recipe uses my High Protein Brownie Batter as the base and just adds on some Protein Frosting! The protein frosting is only 2 ingredients and it is vegan!

You could try using a different plant-based milk in this recipe but I have only made it with the Silk Almond Cashew Protein Milk so far – it is so good!

You can also try out different protein powders in this recipe but I love the german chocolate flavor – this protein powder is available on Amazon and it is vegan!

Ingredients:

For the Cake –

  • Cocoa crave Lil Buff cake mix(28g)
  • Sugar free chocolate SnackPak pudding cup(92g)

For the Protein Frosting –

  • Nutrex German Chocolate Protein Powder (14g)
  • 2 tablespoons Silk Almond and Cashew Protein Milk

Optional: add 1 packet of stevia or other sweetener to frosting, sprinkles to top brownie

Instructions:

  1. Mix cake mix with pudding, mix thoroughly, directly in the container you’ll be using to bake your brownie(I use a small glass container that is about 3 inches x 6 inches)
  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees, smooth the batter in your baking pan
  3. Bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes until center is set
  4. While brownie is baking mix almond milk with protein powder – mix really thoroughly. Add stevia packet last if desired
  5. As soon as you remove the brownie from the oven begin spreading protein frosting on top(you do not need to wait for it to cool, this icing will not melt – this also helps to prevent the brownie from getting dry)
  6. Immediately eat, or cover tightly and refrigerate until ready to eat(then reheat for 20-30seconds uncovered in microwave)
