Skinny Brownies - Gluten & Dairy Free and Low Calorie

I thought it was time to get back in the kitchen and start experimenting....
Now that i am back at uni, i am on the go a lot which can lead to back snacking, so this my attempt to stop that. I am not usually a fan of healthy baking as it is never as good as the real thing and is usually time consuming and expensive... here is my take on a healthy chocolate brownie bar!

It is both gluten and dairy free, has high amounts of protein and is low in calories. Uses pretty standard every day ingredients and is not time consuming at all!! 

This is the first attempt, with many to come to make this a healthier, low carb (sugar) and higher protein snack. Resulted in a very light and spongey bar with a good chocolate flavour and texture. will defiantly be making these again with more protein and less sugar - will post any more attempts.

Let me know your thoughts if you have any or any suggestions. Enjoy 

1 cup all-purpose Gluten Free Baking Flour 
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder (make sure its gluten free)
1/2 cup Ground Almonds (Almond Meal)
1/2 cup Cocoa (can use cacaco if you want it to be superfood)
4 Scoops (1/3 cup) Vanilla or Chocolate Protein Powder 
1 cup Caster Sugar
1 cup Almond Milk 
2 Eggs 
2 tsp Vanilla essence 
1/2 melted Coconut Oil 

    Preheat oven to 170 C.
    Place all ingredients in a cake mixer and mix until smooth, be careful not to over mix.
    Pour into a lined square cake pan / slice tin and bake for 30-35 minutes or until cake tests cooked.
    Leave brownie in pan for 10mins before removing to cool. Cut when cooled to room temperature and ENJOY!
    Note: can be frozen for up to 2 weeks <3

Scanned and added all my ingredients into my fitnesspal app so here is the Nutritional information if bars are cut into 20 pieces!
