I just can’t kick my chocolate habit, and I’ve decided that is ok. No more sweetened chocolate by the handful for me though, that I can stick to (or my workout pants won’t fit much longer). Chocolate has been the one thing that I struggle with. Having bags of chocolate morsels and chocolate chips for when I’m recipe testing makes it so easy to stand in the pantry eating handfuls of these little babies at a time. Not in line with my goals. Nope not a bit. But these hemp protein brownie bites, well they are solving my chocolate fix desires with less calories than my usual chocolate afternoon fix. Oh and they are full of protein, fiber and healthy fats. Can you say AMAZING!

I’ve had the same bag of hemp protein in the pantry for 3 months. I just can’t get around to cooking with it because it’s flavorless and GREEN. Who wants green food. But I stopped in at a local juice bar and they had chocolate hemp protein milk and instantly I knew I just had to recreate that for post workout recovery. I’ll share that recipe soon because OMG it’s so good and perfect. But what I discovered was that chocolate covers that green color very well and because the hemp protein doesn’t have any flavor, the chocolate shines through like a charm!

I added all the usual ingredients to this, coconut oil, raw cacao powder, chia seeds, hemp protein. This is just one small superfood bomb that happens to taste just like a brownie! These are sweetened this with stevia, applesauce and a touch of coconut sugar (which is going to be deemed optional because I liked it without the sugar but Dave preferred it with the sugar). I use stevia for most of my baking and my coffee everyday. I don’t mind the taste, so it works well for me. If you struggle with the flavor from stevia, you will probably want to increase the coconut sugar to 3-4 tbs. total.

I might have had to make 2 batches to have enough to photograph. Listen, I’m a busy girl these days! The gym has taken on my entire free time, but I love every single second of it. My clients are amazing and I hope they all get to try this recipe, it’s one of my new favorites!

    I had some vanilla flavoured hemp protein powder, staring at me in the fridge. It already contained coconut sugar so I decided to try this recipe. A great way to use up the protein powder in such an easy way without baking. Surprisingly, yummy and truffle like. I also added ground Chia seeds and ground flaxseed to the recipe, and it turned out great. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    I love this recipe!! They have a wonderful fudge like texture that is reminiscent of a truffle (a dairy free truffle!) The first time I didn’t have any stevia so I just used the optional coconut sugar instead, and the second time I made these I halved the recipe, used monk fruit sweetener instead of stevia and omitted the coconut sugar. Favorite way to use hemp protein so far.

    I made these for my daughter who has multiple food allergies. Rare to find something so tasty and decadent tasting with no dairy, no gluten or eggs and no refined sugar. Plus it’s easy to make. Delicious!

    These are INCREDIBLE!! Tastes like brownie batter, with a lovely texture too. The best way to power through 3-hr morning lectures. Thank you so much!!

  5. I love when you can get your chocolate fix without all the excess sugar! Stevia is my go-to sweetener and the hemp powder is a great alternative! Thanks for sharing.

  6. That’s some nice innovation; if you have it you use it. They look really good; I’d never heard of hemp protein powder before; but I love how there are so many options for protein powder nowadays; you don’t just have to do whey anymore.

  7. I feel like hemp protein can be so tough to make stuff with sometimes. So glad you created a good recipe! can’t wait to try!
