This was a fun recipe to make, I wasn’t sure how it would turn out but it was bloody gorgeous!! I kept the brownie texture nice and gooey on the inside just to make this a really indulgent treat and the quest bar pieces actually turned out like biscuit pieces which was even nicer than I imagined! I used the oreo quest bars but you could use any one you like, the cookie dough or smores would work quite well too I’d imagine!
- 1 cup almond/coconut flour
- 3 tbs plain gluten free flour (or any GF flour)
- 3 eggs
- 2 Quest Bars chopped
- 1/2 cup raw cacao
- 1 tsp vanilla (optional)
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup melted butter/coconut oil
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F.
- Line a round baking tin with greaseproof paper and put aside.
- Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl (except quest bars) and in a second smaller bowl mix the wet ingredients until combined.
- Mix the wet into the dry, this can be done in a food processor or by hand. When you get an even consistency, mix in the quest bar pieces.
- Spoon the batter into the prepared pan.
- Bake the brownies for 25 to 30 minutes, or until they’re just barely beginning to pull away from the sides of the pan. Don’t overcook them, unlike cakes, you don’t want a skewer to come out clean. Brownies should be slightly springy on the outside but still gooey in the middle.
- Leave aside to cool before removing from the tin.
- Serve up with some greek yogurt mixed with the protein of your choice!
The perfect cake for any beefcakes in your life, maybe they have a birthday coming up? You could always swap out some of the flour for extra protein too, to ensure the extra gains are there!
