How To Make Cheap Fudge Brownie Protein Bars


You guys voted on it and it’s here. A new protein bar recipe. These black bean protein bars are quick, use simple ingredients, are super cheap to make, and actually feel like a protein bar. These black bean protein bars are quick, use simple ingredients, are super cheap to make, and actually feel like a protein bar. What do I mean by that? They aren’t gonna fall apart in your hand and you don’t need to eat them right away out of the fridge. On that note, let’s get to it! For this one all you need is a food processor. Add into it some drained and rinsed black beans, 4 tablespoons of peanut oil or oil of your choice (we’re using peanut since it’s got a pretty neutral flavor to it), 1 tablespoon of ground coffee, 4 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 3 scoops of chocolate protein powder, 2-3 tablespoons of a sweetener, a little salt, and some unsweetened milk substitute. I use around 1/4 cup but you may need more. Process everything together and if it looks like this, then you’re good to go. If’s too thick, like this, you may want to add a little bit more milk substitute to it. Take out anything oven safe, I’m using this little pan which I’ll link to below, and spread your mix out onto it. Top it with some chocolate chips or anything else you want and then throw it in the oven on 350F/176C for around 12-15 minutes. After 12-15 minutes take them out, cut them, and you’re travel ready. A couple tips, you can make different sizes by using different pans, like a bread pan, and you can scale the recipe to fit your needs. For example, double or triple it. Since I’m mentioning that I should also mention that going forward all the posts on my website TheProteinChef.co will have the ability to scale and print the recipe…plus they’re formatted way better for your viewing pleasure. I’ll make sure to link all the recipes in the description. With that said, drop a comment below with your favorite brand protein bar and maybe for my next protein bar recipe I can recreate the most requested one.

  1. You read my mind bro! Ill throw some walnuts in there and maybe top it with some peanut butter greek yogurt. Thanks bro.

  2. Hi! I would def try it. How to replace the peanut oil as I can't think of a place I could buy some? Olive oil looks too smelly for me. Would avocado oil be fine? Any other oil you would recommend. Thank you.

  3. Milk substitute is the dumbest thing that exists … Milk comes from cows – it's good for you. Those modern studies suck dick and are not true, they serve the lobby to destroy the honest farmer

  4. The Protein Chef. Second damn, Teach me how to. You upload content that I like, I believe we could collab. I believe the vid sounds quiet, add some of my songs from my channel.

  5. Redcon1 MRE bars are so good. German chocolate cake is the best. I had to stop buying them because I'd eat 3 a day and at around $3 a piece it adds up.

  6. Would it be a problem if I skipped half the oil to make it more macro friendly? Would it take a massive hit in terms of taste or consistency if I replaced it with , let's say, milk.

  7. Yay! I'm excited to try this! Great for my chocolate fix! My favorite protein bar I ever had was Salted Toffee Pretzel BSN Crip bars. Tasted almost like a Take 5 candy bar, love them so much ๐Ÿ˜

  8. Hey Derek, can you recommend any substitutes for the oil in this recipe? Applesauce? Yogurt? Thank you, loving these 3-4 minute videos!

  9. Damn dude that looks fantastic! My favorite kind of protein bars are the ONE Maple Glazed Donut. Those are dynamite and protein chef take on them would be fire!

  10. That's awesome to see the new serving slider on your pages now. I was going to ask if you could do more "single portion" meals. That's an awesome new feature on your recipes.

  11. It's still so weird watching this guys video and hearing him talk without the weird inflections he used to have in his old videos.

  12. My favorite protein bar is the Almond One bar! Ugh so good. Tastes like I'm eating an almond joy chocolate bar๐Ÿคค

    Thank you so much Protein Chef for this awesome recipe! Super pumped to try and make these. I'm a nurse and I need snacks like these for work or post workout.๐Ÿ˜Š Awesome job!

  13. quick question: the weight you've included of black beans – is that drained weight or not? If not drained weight I've just put in twice as much as I should have ๐Ÿ˜› although to be fair they're still pretty good.

    One other thing – Erythritol is the Don of sweeteners. Great recommendation and I'm really glad I ordered some from Amazon as per your recommendation on a Livestream.

  14. How would you do this without a food processor? Can I use a bullet style blender to mush the beans/milk/oil together and only add half of the dry ingredients, and then add the other half in a mixing bowl?
