My goal was to create a rich chocolate brownie that has chunks of chocolate covered cherry candies in the brownie mix. I have to say that I was successful :) If you like chocolate covered cherries, this may be the treat for you. I stirred some dark chocolate covered cherries into the rich brownie batter and baked it to create a silky, chewy, gooey, chocolatey, rich, scrumtious protein brownie. Enjoy!
1/3 cup oat flour
½ cup almond meal flour
3 Tbsp. chocolate protein powder
1 Tbsp. Divine Chocolate Cocoa Powder
¼ cup baking stevia or xylitol
¼ cup cooked sweet potato, mashed
1 large egg
2 Tbsp. unsweetened almond milk
2 Tbsp. greek yogurt
¼ cup Emily’s Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries, chopped
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 5x8 inch baking dish, or small square baking dish, with parchment paper.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the sweet potato, egg, milk, and yogurt until completely smooth. To the same bowl, add the oat flour, almond meal flour, protein powder, cocoa, and stevia and stir until well combined. Stir in the ½ cup dark chocolate covered cherries.
3. Pour batter into the baking dish, sprinkle with the ¼ cup chopped dark chocolate covered cherries, and bake in the oven for 28-32 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 30 minutes. Slice into 12 squares and serve immediately.
