It happened again!

So many of you on facebook guessed pretty darn close to today’s recipe! Guess you guys really know us, hehe.

Chocolate and mint are always a good first guess.

Mint chocolate chip protein fudge brownie bars recipe that is gluten-free and grain-free.

Do you remember our peppermint candy cane hemp protein bars?  One of our favorites!! We ate them a lot! Now we wanted to make them a little differently yet the same.

Easy dessert recipes are the best recipes. And this protein fudge brownie is super easy to make! Oh yay!

Basically we followed the original protein brownie bars that are already egg, grain, soy, and of course gluten-free but changed up the frosting!

We thought of doing our banana coconut fudge on top of the protein brownie bars. So we started whipping up the fudge as the brownies were cooling. Then we realized that the fudge probably won’t be enough to really cover the brownies. We wanted a thick, rich frosting for these ultimate mint brownie bars.  

Oh.. what… do we do now? —> we thought.

We came up with adding in an avocado and some coconut oil, which turns out to be close to our banana avocado frosting that we used on our pumpkin brownie cupcakes recipe. Unsure of exactly how it would turn out, but we had a STRONG feeling it would be a-m-a-z-i-n-g!


And it was!

Perfectly rich, smooth and velvety.  And the avocados also helped with adding in some more natural green color. Brilliant!

These brownies need to be shared, as they are far too dangerous to be left alone with. We are totally obsessed and think you will too!

If you love chocolate and mint this recipe is for YOU!

We could eat like a hundred and still not get sick of them (ok…probably get a little sick).  Basically you need to make them. Why? Because they are awesome!

They are very visually appealing too, with the pale green contrasting with the brown of the chocolate. Love it!

    If you didn’t want to use the applesauce in the brownie recipe could you use one more egg? Any suggestions?

  2. sara says

    What hemp protein do you use? I have tried a few that are so grainy and awful to do anything with. Any good brand recommendations?

    • purelytwins says

      We find them all to have the grainy texture, we have yet to find one that is really smooth. We use Nutiva Hemp protein and Manitoba Harvest organic hemp protein powders.

    • purelytwins says

      to replace the bananas – you could had in about 5oz of cashews and add in maple syrup or any other liquid sweetener of choice to taste.

        • purelytwins says

          can use coconut meat or use more avocado, it might just have a more ‘avocado’ taste, you could try doing just stevia for the sweetness, you might have to add in some water to replace the liquid sweetener

  3. Kaye says

    We have been snacking on these Mint Chocolate Chip Protein brownies all weekend!!!!, thank you for this AWESOME recipe!!!! Major keeper!!

  4. says

    Amazing recipe! Question: How long can these be stored? Does the frosting turn brown like an overripe avocado? I want to bring these to two different parties (one Friday, one Saturday), and would like to make them today (Thursday), but am wondering if they will still be good by Saturday?

  5. Marlo says

    Thanks for this post! I made these tonight, following the recipe exactly and they are so delicious! I’ve been indulging all weekend in food that makes me feel guilty while I’m eating so it’s nice to have a nutrient-dense treat in hand heading into the new week! I have one question for you…do you think it’s possible to sub another protein powder for the hemp? My husband uses Raw Meal from Garden of Life so we always have that in the house…thanks again!

    • purelytwins says

      yes another protein powder should work, it just might change the taste and texture a little, also we would suggest adding in the wet slowly as each protein powder can be different in how much water it absorbs.

    Update on my review:
    These are delicious!!! The four year old ate it and loved it. He was also full of “Yum, this is good!” The husband said they were just alright. But, his opinion doesn’t matter as he eats everything not good for him. :)

    5 star brownie recipe! :)

  7. Beth says

    What would you recommend as a replacement for coconut butter? I’m in New Zealand: it’s incredibly expensive in stores here, and I don’t have any time to whip up my own in the near future!

    Also for the actual bars, do you think that the arrowroot could be omitted? Or would it need cornstarch or spelt flour or something similar in place?

    You guys are amazing! thanks!


  1.
