Sometimes after a long day, a sweet treat really hits the spot. Instead of indulging in a nutrient-lacking snack, give these easy to make protein brownies a try.  Beets and pumpkin form the base of this recipe and Vega Sport Performance Protein adds a protein boost, making these brownies significantly less guilt-inducing.

Ingredients

  • 4 small beets (about 250g), cooked and peeled
  • 1 can (420g) pumpkin purée
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 Tbsp of coconut flour
  • 3 scoops (87g) Vega Sport Performance Protein Chocolate flavor
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 320° F. Line a 13 inch x 9 inch cake pan with parchment paper.
  2. Chop beets. Purée beets with pumpkin and vanilla in a food processor.
  3. Add in coconut flour, Vega Performance Protein, cocoa powder and coconut sugar. Mix until well combined.
  4. Pour brownie mixture into pan and spread evenly.
  5. Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean
