Healthy, Low-Sugar Protein Brookie Slices (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Oil-Free)

This is the best brookie because you can enjoy it knowing it’s serving your health too! Who doesn’t love brownies or chocolate chips cookies? And combining them has always been a win-win, but it’s a lot of sugar and can leave you with that hangover feeling. These brookie slices are great because they are lower in sugar, oil free, and have some sneaky protein in there to help balance your blood sugar

They are, of course, also gluten and dairy free. We are all about the healthy, allergy friendly treats around here! So tell me, if you had to pick one (which of course you don’t now, thanks to this recipe) would you pick brownies or chocolate chip cookies?! Leave a comment letting me know

Healthy Brookie Bars

Base batter:

-1 cup Tigernut or almond flour

-1/4 cup protein powder (I used Sprout Living pumpkin seed protein, but another vegan option should work)

-1/4 cup 1:1 gluten free flour

-3/4 tsp. baking powder

-1/4 tsp salt

-1 egg

-1/4 cup maple syrup

-1/4 cup applesauce

-1/4 cup yogurt (I used Oatly vegan yogurt, but greek would work too!)

For brownie layer, you’ll also need:

-1/4 cup cocoa powder

-2 tbs. milk of choice

-1 tbs. maple syrup

-1/4+ cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F.

Sift all dry ingredients together for base batter and set aside.

Beat all wet ingredients for base better together until smooth.

Add dry ingredients to wet and stir to combine (or mix on low with paddle attachment until combined). 

Separate half the batter into another bowl and mix in the brownie layer ingredients except for the chocolate chips.

Divide the chocolate chips between the two bowls and fold into each layer.

Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and spread the brownie layer on the bottom. Then spread the cookie dough layer on top.

Bake for 35-40 min until a toothpick comes out clean. 

Cool for 10 min in the loaf pan then remove to finish cooling on a wire rack.

Try not to eat it all in one night 😉
