Why High-Protein Pastries Are Good for Your Health?
Before we delve into the recipe, let's discuss why high-protein pastries like these brownies are a smart choice for your health:
Muscle Maintenance and Growth: Protein is essential for repairing and building muscle tissue. If you're an active individual or even if you're just looking to maintain a healthy body, getting an adequate amount of protein is crucial.
Satiety: Protein-rich foods help you feel full and satisfied, which can aid in managing your appetite and preventing overeating.
Metabolism Support: Protein has a higher thermic effect compared to carbohydrates and fats, meaning your body burns more calories during digestion, potentially helping with weight management.
Blood Sugar Control: High-protein snacks can help stabilize blood sugar levels, reducing energy crashes and cravings for sugary snacks.

(Makes 4 high-protein brownies in size like cupcakes):
1.5 ripe bananas
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
Non-dairy yogurt and mixed nuts (or other toppings of your choice)
1. Prepare Your Oven:
Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and grease or line a cupcake mold for 4 brownies.
2. Mix the Wet Ingredients:
In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas until smooth. Add the eggs and whisk them into the mashed bananas until well combined.
3. Add the Protein Powder:
Gently fold in one scoop of Nutrasumma Fermented Pea Protein Chocolate Flavor. This addition not only boosts the protein content but also infuses a rich chocolatey flavor.
4. Incorporate the Baking Powder:
Sprinkle in the baking powder and mix well until there are no clumps in the batter.
5. Bake to Perfection:
Pour the brownie batter evenly into the cupcake molds. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
6. Add Toppings:
Once your brownies are baked to perfection, allow them to cool slightly. You can top them with a dollop of non-dairy yogurt for creaminess and a sprinkle of mixed nuts for crunch. Alternatively, get creative with your toppings and add your favorites.
