S’mores Brownies {Recipe}

Love s’mores?

How about brownies?

Why not combine BOTH and turn it into a “better for you” treat? Today I have for you a flourless and gluten-free White Chocolate S’mores Brownie recipe that uses my flourless protein brownie doughnut recipe. Enjoy!White Chocolate S’mores Brownies (makes 4-6 servings)

  • 1/2 Cup of Chopped Up Dark Chocolate (I use 60% or higher)
  • 1-2 Tbsps White Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Tbsp of Creamy Peanut Butter (or your choice)
  • 1 Tbsp of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (or your choice)
  • 1 tsp of Pure Maple Syrup (or Agave, Honey)
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2-3 Packets of Stevia
  • 2 tsps of Ground Flax Seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Cup Vanilla Protein
  • 2 Large Egg
  • Dash of Sea Salt
  • [Optional] Add In’s: 1 Tbsp Dark Chocolate Chips, 1/4 Cup of Marshmallow Pieces
  • Toppings: 1 Tbsp of White Chocolate Chips & 1/4 Cup of Marshmallow Pieces
  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Take the first three ingredients and melt in the microwave for 30-45 seconds (depending on your microwave). Once chocolate is melted, add in the remaining ingredients except for the egg and sea salt.
  2. Once everything is well mixed, place the brownie batter to the side and whisk the egg with sea salt. Then mix into batter and mix well.
  3. Now you can finally add the batter into a small square pan (I used an 8×4 inch loaf pan or try a cupcake pan). Top batter with marshmallow before placing into the oven.
  4. Place brownies into oven for about 10mins (again, depending on your oven). I usually like to check at the 8 minute mark just to be on the safe side. You want the center to be slightly firm but not over (or under) cooked.
  5. Remove brownies from the oven and let them cool for about 15mins, then eat up!

Question: How do you do s’mores?

I once had a s’mores ice cream and I must say, was pretty delicious!

MIMM #13: Super Bowl Weekend!

Happy [Snow Day] Marvelous in My Monday and as always, thanks Katie for hosting!It’s another snow day here in New England and a lot of places are closed yet again. I am snowed in with the fiancé since we both have the day off. I haven’t been feeling too great and took the weekend off from my workouts.

Today I plan to do some shoulders/ chest at home with the kettlebells and 10lbs weights I have after this breakfast. But let’s get back to this Marvelous weekend.

Boy was it filled with food galore and the Super Bowl. Friday night, Patrick and I went randomly to “dinner” and ended up at Denny’s. I was craving a giant plate of delicious egg whites. I doubt there are four here, so I logged in five.Some Marvelous turtle cheesecake for dessert. Mmmm ❤Now I am not a fan of football, I am more of a baseball chick. But Patrick really wanted me to watch the game with him (at least part of it), so I agreed to watch a bit. That’s love right? Sunday morning, he woke up to get me some donuts. I heard of this place called Ziggy’s in Salem, MA and wanted to try them. The sprinkles and apple cinnamon glazed were my favorite. As if we didn’t have enough sweets, I wanted to make some brownies with a vanilla buttercream frosting. Was just in the mood and they came out Marvelously delicious.‘P’ was supposed to be for Patrick, but he kept say it’s for Patriots. What ever floats his boat!I tried this Power Crunch bar and I just did NOT like it. Maybe it was the white coating? Maybe the chocolate one would have been better to try? I don’t know, but I just couldn’t stomach it.Highlight of the weekend? Spending time with Patrick and these beautiful flowers he got me. Love him ❤Question: Have you tried Power Crunch bars? What’s your favorite flavor?

Were you watching the Super Bowl and happy with the results?!

Are you snowed in too?

WIAW #106: Flourless & GF Protein Brownie Doughnuts (Recipe)

Post surgery, I had a massive craving for doughnuts.

When I got home to NYC and was able to stand for a bit, I decided to take my cakester recipe and play with it until I came up with this protein brownie doughnut that is flourless, gluten-free and absolutely delicious.

Without further interruptions, here is the recipe for these amazing protein doughnuts. As always, thanks Jenn for hosting this food loving party! Flourless Protein Brownie Cake Doughnuts Ingredients (Makes Six)

  • 1/2 Cup of Chopped Up Dark Chocolate (I use 60% or higher)
  • 1 Tbsp of Creamy Almond Butter (Peanut Butter is delicious too, or your choice!)
  • 1 Tbsp of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp of Pure Maple Syrup (or Agave, Honey)
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Coconut Sugar (or substitute w/ Stevia)
  • 1 Tbsp of Ground Flax Seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Cup Vanilla Protein
  • 2 Large Eggwhites
  • Dash of Sea Salt
  • Add In’s: Almond Slivers, Chia Seeds, Coconut Flakes, Dark Chocolate Chips, etc.
  • Toppings: Protein Glaze, Almond Butter, Coconut Flakes, Hemp Seeds, Almond Slivers, etc.
  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Take the first three ingredients and melt in the microwave for 30-45 seconds (depending on your microwave). Once chocolate is melted, add in the remaining ingredients except for the eggwhites and sea salt.
  2. Once everything is well mixed, place the brownie doughnut batter to the side and whisk the eggwhites with the sea salt. Then take blended eggwhites and mix well into batter.
  3. Now you can finally add the batter into a doughnut pan (or use a cupcake pan or a small square pan to make brownies).  I usually like to make different kinds of doughnuts and mix different things into all six. My mom enjoys almond slivers inside and and I like to add a little chia seeds and dark chocolate chips.
  4. Place doughnuts into the oven for 8-10mins (again, depending on your oven). I usually like to check at the 6 minute mark just to be on the safe side.
  5. Remove the doughnuts from the oven and let them cool for about 5mins. Top with your favorite goodies such as a little protein glaze, coconut flakes and almonds or simply a little glaze and more seeds; flax, hemp or chia or all three!

You can tell that I’m a seed freak 😉

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. The next thing I am going to try is make them vegan. I’ll let you know how that goes.
