these COLLAGEN FUDGE BROWNIES are nexxxt level, they are filled with protein, low in carbs and only 100 calories per square
Let’s talk COLLAGEN....
Collagen is a protein that forms the connective tissue in our body, including in our bones and skin. Our body naturally produces collagen daily and this production slows over time....cue *aging*. Thus adding collagen into your diet can help supplement your normal collagen levels, promoting healthy skin, hair, joints and bones.
MY EXPERIENCE with collagen....
I have been adding collagen peptides to my coffees and smoothies for years and recently began adding it to my recipes, such as these brownies, using the beauty collagen by @bodykitchencollagen . Let’s be 𝗵𝗼𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘁... I live a generally healthy lifestyle, I take different supplements and I do different things to promote my wellbeing, including working out, derma-rolling, and eating a high fiber diet, SO it is hard for me to say that taking collagen is the single reason for my glowing skin (I would have to cut everything else out to accurately test whether collagen makes that difference). What I do know is that since I have consistently integrated collagen into my diet, I have noticed that I have less frequent breakouts. However, for me the true benefit of collagen peptides is in the protein. I love collagen as a way to add protein to a meal to ensure I am getting sufficient protein to maintain muscle mass. I love adding collagen to smoothies and coffee, but also I add it to red sauce when using it on pizza or pasta to add some protein!
What supplements do you take? I would love to hear if from you and I am always open to recommendations.
RECIPE FOR CHOCOLATE FUDGE COLLAGEN BROWNIES:
10 Scoops of collagen peptides
4 Scoops of Inulin Powder (optional but great to increase the fiber)
3/4 Cups of Monkfruit Sweetener (I recommend Lakanto brand)
1/3 Cup unsweetened coco powder
3/4 Cup Almond Flour
2 tbs coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking soda* (not baking powder)
1/2 tsp salt (optional but amps up the flavor)
1/2 Cup nut butter (I use almond butter)
4 Large egg whites
1/4 Cup unsweetened almond milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 dark chocolate chips
(1) In one bowl mix dry ingredients and in another bowl mix wet ingredients, then combine the two and mix thoroughly,
(2) Preheat the oven to 350F, grease a 8x8 baking sheet (ideal to line with parchment paper to make it easier to remove the brownie), spread the batter (it will be thick) and sprinkle with sprinkles,
(3) Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a knife comes out clean when stuck in the center.
IMPORTANT: after baking, the cookie will be very soft still. Do not remove from the pan or eat until it completely cools. I personally place it in the fridge overnight before eating it because it tastes best when it sets completely!
Store in the fridge for up to a week and Enjoy!
