Fudgiest Healthy Brownies



  • 1.5 cups hemp seed protein

  • 1.5 cups unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 4 flax eggs*

  • 1 cup maple syrup

  • 4 tbsp coconut oil, melted

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • Optional – 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts or dark chocolate chips.

*To make your flax eggs, simply combine 3 tbsp ground flax seeds with 7.5 tbsp water. Mix together, and let sit on the counter for 5-minutes to thicken.


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a small-medium baking dish with parchment paper. The size of your dish will determine the thickness of the brownies.

  2. In a bowl, whisk together hemp seed protein, cocoa powder, baking powder and sea salt. Add the flax eggs, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract, and mix until a smooth, thick batter forms. Fold in additional nuts or chocolate chips if desired.

  3. Scoop the batter into your baking dish, and spread smooth evenly across using a spatula.

  4. Bake at 300 for 25-30 minutes. The shorter you bake the brownies, the fudgier they will be.
