How to Make Guilt-Free Brownie

Imagine waking up to the rich aroma of chocolate, knowing that this treat is not only delicious but also good for you. This brownie combines the natural sweetness of bananas with the deep, rich flavor of cocoa powder and dark chocolate chunks, creating a dessert-like experience for breakfast. 

The addition of chocolate protein powder not only enhances the chocolate flavor but also adds a significant protein boost, ensuring you stay full and energized throughout the morning.


  • 1 banana
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder or 2 extra tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons dark chocolate chunks (70% cocoa or more, sugar-free)


  1. Prepare the Batter: In a bowl, mash the banana until smooth. Add the cocoa powder, egg, chocolate protein powder, milk, and dark chocolate chunks. Stir well until the mixture is thick and smooth, ensuring all ingredients are fully incorporated. The banana provides natural sweetness and moisture, while the cocoa powder and chocolate chunks add depth of flavor.
  2. Microwave or Bake: Grease a microwave-safe mold and pour the batter into it. Microwave on high for about 2 minutes, checking halfway through to prevent overcooking. Alternatively, preheat your oven to 350°F, pour the batter into a greased baking dish, and bake for about 17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. The microwave method is quick and convenient, perfect for busy mornings, while baking in the oven can yield a slightly different texture, equally delightful.
  3. Cool and Enjoy: Allow the brownie to cool before unmolding it. Cooling helps the brownie set, making it easier to cut into pieces without crumbling. Serve warm or at room temperature, and enjoy a rich, chocolaty treat that's both satisfying and healthy.
