Chocolate Brownies with PB Frosting


This recipe was inspired by Samantha Hadadi as her brownies kept popping up all over my social media feed so I needed to make some. I decided to switch up the sweet potato for butternut squash and add in some extra protein. I wasn't going to post the recipe but as I was asked here it is :)


Makes 12

Ingredients

150g butternut squash (I buy frozen chopped packs from tescos)

2 tbsp (28g) Sukrin Cake Mix

2 tbsp (28g) Coconut flour (Sukrin)

2 tbsp (17g) Cacao power (KaizenLiving)

30g Vanilla Whey (Natural Whey)

2 eggs

25g Coconut Oil

75g Date Nectar

25g Dark Chocolate

pinch salt

1/4 tsp baking powder

optional tsp coffee (bring out chocolate taste)

Topping

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

55g peanut butter (Merdians)

50g Greek Yogurt

50 ml unsweetened almond milk (alpro)

Method

*Cook the squash and allow to cool

*Blend until smooth. Melt the coconut oil and dark chocolate

*Add all the other ingredients to the squash and blend. Then stir in chocolate and oil.

*Pour mixture into a lined baking tray and bake for 15 mins (until cooked through) at 180 degrees

*Once cooked place on a wire rack to cool

*Microwave the pb for 30 secs to make extra runny.

*Stir in the yogurt and protein powder.

*Add in the milk a bit at a time to get the desired consistency.

*Spread over cooled brownies. Cut up and enjoy

The original recipe is here aswell if you want to try that one too :)
