Dive right into this Healthy Brownie Batter and enjoy by the spoonful or use it as a frosting or dip. It’s healthy, it’s safe, and heck—it’s way better than diving into a bowl of your standard raw and runny brownie batter!


  • Smooth like icing but still so thick and fudgy!
  • Rich chocolate in every bite. It’s seriously the ultimate chocolate fix.
  • Just 7 ingredients needed—and they’re all pantry staples.
  • Quick, easy, and no baking required. Enjoy this healthy brownie batter in a matter of minutes!
  • IT’S SO FUDGING DELICIOUS! Seriously, how is this stuff healthy!?!


  • Pumpkin – I haven’t tried but I would think you could replace with banana or mashed avocado if you needed.
  • Nut butter – Almond, peanut, cashew, any nut butter of choice! My favorites are almond and cashew butter. If you have a nut allergy you can sub for sunflower butter. For lower fat, you can use peanut butter powder.
  • Cocoa powder – You could use normal cocoa, dark cocoa, or dutch black cocoa! I used normal cocoa, here but all are tasty options!
  • Protein powder – I used PEScience Vanilla. A chocolate or peanut butter flavor would also work here. Honestly, you could really use any flavor! To make a vegan brownie batter, use a vegan protein powder. For all PEScience products, you can use my affiliate code Laurenfitfoodie to save 10% off your purchase
  • Sweetener – I used Swerve Granular Sweetener. You can use Truvia, Splenda, Stevia, sugar, or any other sweetener of your choice.
  • Sugar-free pancake syrup – You can also use honey. Substitute with pure maple syrup if you wish to make this recipe vegan.
  • Vanilla – to maximize it’s flavor of course!


Combine all the ingredients in a food processor (or mix with a hand mixer) until everything is incorporated and you have a thick batter.

Chill: Store your healthy brownie batter covered in the fridge for 1-2 hours. This will help all of the flavors really come together. If you can’t wait that long (I don’t blame you), at least add it to the freezer for 10 minutes!


It’s super easy to make this healthy brownie batter vegan. Just replace the whey protein powder with a vegan protein powder and the sugar-free pancake syrup with maple syrup. That’s it!


  • Eat it straight up! This is what I do most often if I’m being honest here. 😂
  • Use it as a frosting. Spread all over a cake or on top of some cupcakes or bars. It’ll add fudgy brownie flavor to whatever you choose! Who could pass that up?!
  • Serve as a dip. Take some sliced apples, strawberries, graham crackers, or even brownie brittle and dunk ’em in to this chocolately goodness! A truly epic dessert.
  • Dollop a spoonful on your Jello Yogurt Bowl, an ice cream sundae, or a Cookies and Cream Protein Milkshake!

    • Hey Breanna, I have not tried it with banana so I can’t say how it’ll turn out. I would think maybe a little less thick and a bit more sweet, but still good! May just want to add less sweetener depending on how sweet you like things. Let me know if yo try it!

      • Hey so I made this like I said using banana and I just cut the sweetener amount in half and it’s really good I use 2 small bananas 10/10 recommend

  1. Will do I think I will try it because I have to bananas that are going ripe and I hate for them to go to waste

    • That was a typo at the beginning. Sorry about that and thanks for bringing it to my attention! 92 calories for a whole 1/4 cup is the correct amount 🙌🏼
