No one wants to bite into a fresh baked good only to find it rubbery, tough, and inedible. Whip up these brownies instead. They're smooth, sweet, and protein-packed.


  • 1 cup liquid egg whites
  • 200 g low-sodium black beans
  • ¾ cup(s) chocolate protein powder
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • ¼ cup agave syrup
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  • 5 tbsp fat-free cottage cheese
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp natural peanut butter

  1. Using an immersion blender or food processor, blend all the ingredients together. Bear in mind that what you want to end up with is a thick pancake-like batter. If your batter is too runny, add a tbsp more of coconut flour until it thickens. If it's too thick, add an extra egg white or two.
  2. Once your mixture is perfect—smooth and thick, yet pourable—bake it in a small brownie pan at 160 C (320 F) for about 45 minutes to an hour, or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
