BROOKIE LOAF

Did you know that when you cross cookie dough with a brownie, you get a ‘brookie’? And this insanely good combo inspired this very delicious, indulgent (but also kinda healthy!) loaf recipe. With a boost of protein from including protien powder (not essential – you could just use extra flour), chunks of chocolate in the cookie dough layer is topped with a fudgy brownie mixture…THEN drizzled with extra peanut butter and nuts, yum!

Ingredients:

For the cookie base –

  • 130g gluten-free flour
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder
  • 70g coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 75-100ml almond milk
  • 70g dark chocolate, chopped

For the brownie –

  • 2 scoops chocolate protein powder
  • 50g coconut sugar
  • 100g dark chocolate
