This Amazing One Minute Protein Brownie will truly knock your socks off. The perfect amount of sweet yumminess to satisfy your craving without any guilt.
Now, I know what you must be thinking. One minute? Amazing? Really?
But I will confirm with my biggest of biggest “absolutely”! This is truly an amazing one-minute protein brownie!
I was skeptical too. But of course I had to try it in my quest for more healthy dessert options for me while I am training hard in the gym. Getting in protein is hard for me sometimes, especially when it comes to snacks and desserts.
I pretty much have my favorite egg white scramble for breakfast, my yogurt parfait for my afternoon snack. It’s just easier for me to eat the same things often. When I have a dessert craving, I needed something in my arsenal as a go-to. (Other than just plain dark chocolate)
Enter this fabulous new discovery. It couldn’t be more simple. Just a scoop of protein powder of your choice, a tablespoon of coconut sugar, coconut flour, cocoa powder and a ½ teaspoon of baking powder. Mixed with a ¼ cup of egg whites and milk of choice. I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
While it’s cooking, it looks like it’s going to puff over the sides of the mug. Mine puffed up about 3 inches above the top of the mug! But once it sits for about 2-3 minutes, it settles right down.
I cooked mine for exactly 60 seconds (1 minute) After sitting for those couple of minutes, it was the perfect gooey texture for me!
1 scoop protein powder (whey, casein or vegan)
1 Tablespoon coconut flour
1 Tablespoon coconut sugar or other granulated sweetener of choice (optional if protein is sweetened)
1-2 Tablespoons dark cocoa powder (adjust to desired chocolate content)
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ cup liquid egg whites (or 1 large egg or 1 flax egg (see notes in recipe card below)
¼ cup milk of choice (almond, coconut, etc work as well)
Chocolate chips, optional
Grease a mug or a small bowl and set aside.
In the greased mug or small bowl, mix the protein powder, coconut flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, and cocoa powder and mix well.
In the separate bowl, whisk the egg with the milk.
Pour into the dry mixture and mix thoroughly.
Top with chocolate chips if desired.
Microwave for 60 seconds. For a more fudge-like texture, remove from the microwave earlier. For more cake-like texture, cook a little longer.
Remove from microwave and enjoy immediately.
Oven option: Pour batter into a small baking dish and bake for 10-12 minutes on 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes.

Will it work to use egg white protein powder?
This was actually disgusting.
my entire family ridiculed me calling them poop cups. I forced them to eat it, and their agonizing groans angered me. I decided to taste it myself and had to hold back vomit, I fell to the floor crying and shitting myself until I passed out.
I am writing this a few days later and still have not recovered. These horrible poop cups haunt my dreams and make me question my life choices.
DO NOT EAT THESE
This was amazing. Oh my god, I had topped it with a 90% chocolate square and put it in the microwave for 30 more seconds (total 1:30) and the middle was gooey ooey. Smh. So delicious.
Hi! How many grams of flax seeds do I need for the flax egg? And does it change something about the instructions?
Hi there! To make a flax egg, mix 1 TBSP flax meal to 2.5 TBSP of water. Let it rest for 5 minutes to thicken then mix in with other ingredients.
Oh my God. I made this with cacao hazelnut protein and a dollop of sugar free hazelnut choc spread. Amazing
I bet that WAS amazing!! So glad you enjoyed it!
What kind of protein powder do you use?
I use an unflavored Nature’s Best Isopure whey protein because I prefer ones with no artificial sweeteners 🙂

My coworker made me something similar a few weeks ago. I couldn’t believe how full I felt AND how it satisfied my sweet tooth. The power of protein! I would love it if you linked up this post at the Family Joy Blog Link-up Party which starts on Sundays at 12EST on Ava’s Alphabet and 5 other blogs. Hope you are having a great weekend!
