Healthy Protein Brownies

Healthy Protein Brownies

Serves 12 40 minute prep time

This is the ultimate fudgy healthy protein brownie recipe, and you don’t even have to tell your friends it’s made without gluten, and with zucchini and Vega One® Organic All-in-One Shake (what’s up 20 grams premium plant-based protein, veggies and greens, and 50%DV of 12 vitamins and minerals??). We certainly won’t!


  • 3 Tbsp ground flaxeeds
  • 6 pitted dates, chopped
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup shredded zucchini
  • ½ cup apple sauce
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 serving chocolate Vega One® Organic All-in-One Shake
  • ½ cup Dutch dark cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ cup quinoa flour


  • Pre-heat oven to 350°F.

  • Combine ground flax, chopped dates and water in a small bowl and let sit for 1/2 hour.

  • In a food processor, shred zucchini until fine.

  • Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until just combined.

  • Grease a 9×9 pan with coconut oil and pour in batter.

  • Bake for 20 minutes for moist fudgy brownies, or 25-30 minutes for more cake-like brownies.

  • Let cool 15 minutes before cutting into squares.
