How to make brownies without eggs
Eggless chocolate brownie is delicious, dense and gooey. This brownie is really healthy…What healthy ??? Yes you have read healthy. I have tried this eggless chocolate brownie several time to make it perfect with high protein ingredients and this version brownies is a perfect sweet treats for fitness minded people. This recipe can be called perfect healthy brownie recipe.
In this protein brownie, the ingredients that I have used are Oats , wheat flour, Greek yoghurt, Cottage cheese, Banana, Brown Sugar, Protein powder, Cocoa powder and Skimmed milk. Most of these ingredients have high protein content so these chocolate brownies are rich in protein, egg free and very low fat . Yes these chocolate brownies cooked with no oil and no butter.
Brownies taste good when they have right gooey texture in them. So to moisten it I have used mashed banana. Any fruit puree will work. To increase the protein quantity I have used Greek yoghurt, cottage cheese and protein powder. I have used vanilla flavour of protein powder as only this was available in my pantry but chocolate flavour of protein powder is recommended as it will add to taste of brownie. These days I am pretty much obsessed with trying to eat high protein healthy foods because they help with muscles recovery, and also replenish the depleted energy stores after a good work out.
If you do not wish to use protein powder you may replace it with coconut flour. In this recipe I have used cottage cheese please do not confuse with paneer. Cottage cheese is a fresh cheese curd product with a mild flavor. It is drained, but not pressed, so some whey remains and the individual curds remain loose.

Addition of protein powder is not mandatory. You can replace it with coconut flour.
Natural unsweetened cocoa powder is used in this recipe. It is best to use Hershey's unsweetened cocoa powder as it give intense flavour to the brownies.
