No Bake High Protein Chocolate & Pumpkin Seed Brownies

No Bake High Protein Chocolate & Pumpkin Seed Brownies

How does a snack that is as easy to make as 1, 2, 3 sound? Perfect, that’s how it sounds. Well sit back and relax my friends because I have a recipe that is not only going to blow you away, but it’s going to change the way you snack forever! 

No bake high protein chocolate and pumpkin seed brownies – remember those words my friend. They are life changing. You might think I’m being a little over the top, but once you try these precious pieces of delight, you’re going to agree with me. 

So what makes these brownies so spectacular you might ask. Well, let’s start off with the fact that they’re brownies! I certainly don’t need any other reason to eat them. And neither will you. But on top of this, these brownies taste great (of course), are very simple to make, and packed full of quality ingredients. In fact, they are so good for you that you can eat them for breakfast. I know! Brownies for breakfast – it doesn’t get much better than that.

To make this recipe, you will need 6 ingredients and 20 minutes. I personally love how simple this is to make and all of the ingredients are things I stock regularly. And if you’re following the vegan way of life, you most likely will have these sitting in your cupboard right now. 

We first start this recipe off with some pumpkin seeds and vegan rice protein powder. This will provide us with a good source of protein, magnesium, copper, and zinc just to name a few. We then add in some almond butter, almond milk, and dates which are a great source of protein, fiber, vitamin E, calcium, potassium, and vitamin B6, among many other essential vitamins and minerals.

The no bake high protein chocolate brownie is the perfect breakfast or snack because it’s:

  • Tasty! 
  • A good source of protein – 10g per serve.
  • Super easy to make.
  • Family friendly.
  • Travel friendly.

To store any of your chocolate brownies, pop them in an airtight container or resealable bag and pop them in the fridge for up to 2-3 days. One of most favorite things about these are how portable they are – you can pick them up and go. My best tip for this would be to put them into the serving sizes you desire before putting them into the fridge. This makes it so much easier to grab and go when you need to. 

I hope you have enjoyed this recipe. Enjoy!
