The Gym Deli Vegan Protein Brownie Recipe!!


If you follow my Instagram, last night you would have seen that my good friend Natalie over at Gym Deli sorted me out with some incredible meatballs and some delicious brownies. I also charmed the brownie recipe out of her so I could share them with all of you! I know I know.. I’m good to you!!

The following brownies are vegan, protein and out of this world orgasms in your mouth! Enjoy!!

Ingredients to make 16 small slices:
1 cup/90g sun warrior vegan protein
4tbsps cacao powder
1 cup soft dates
50g shelled pistachios
75g almonds
2-4 tbsp pecans and 2-4 tbsp’s hazelnut roughly chopped/smashed for garnish
1 pinch pink salt
1 tbsp chia seeds
Quarter cup of almond milk
Ganache Topping:
2 tbsp cacao powder
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp honey



Method:

PREP (15 minutes)

Measure out all the ingredients. Blitz all nuts, cacao, chia seeds and salt in a small food mixer.
Transfer this mixture to a large food processor, adding dates, milk and protein powder.
N.B if the mixture is too dry, add almond milk1 tbsp at a time until you reach the desired consistency; forming one big ball sticking together. (N.B if the mixture is too sticky add more nuts)

Spoon mixture out onto parchment paper. Using a rolling pin, roll out the mixture and form into one large square (1 inch thick). Use the straight edge of a knife to press against the edges of the square, ensuring uniform shape.
Firmly press roughly chopped pecans into the top of the brownie.

GANACHE (5-10 Minutes)
Combine all of the ingredients into a small food mixer, spoon out into a small container and let it sit in the fridge for 5-10 minutes before spooning onto the brownie. N.B the consistence changes and it is easier to apply.
Spoon out the ganache, using the back of the spoon to spread across the entire brownie. Sprinkle smashed hazelnuts for garnish. For best results leave in the fridge overnight.


A bit about The Gym Deli;
