Rye flour protein brownies
I won’t deny that I tried to make them … oh, boy, I hopped on the beetroot train as well.
By the way, I had already made a version of my red velvet cake (Red velvet fit roll) with beetroots so I knew what they tasted like, right or
wrong … I was convinced, they would come out amazing.
So I said, why not try it?
I found the most disparate recipes, I chose a bunch, went down the rabbit hole, and got the work done.
I have my super demanding personal tester husband, who also happens to be a brownie addict, so if they passed his judgment it would have been a top
Armed with a mixing bowl on one side and a blender on the other, plenty of enthusiasm (more or less) I threw myself into this beetroot brownie jungle.
It went wrong, very wrong indeed. Final marks … well, we don’t talk about that any more!
If anyone has a recipe in which she/he has succeeded in this miracle… Please pass it on thanks, super hola and solemn summons in the great book of cooking honor and fame will follow.
But back to my brownie day (surely there should be a world brownie day, but I doubt it is today)- Updating FYI—> As stubborn as I am I googled and found out it’ll be the 8th December 2018…so we have plenty of time.
I made these rye flour protein brownies raising their protein rate by adding whey protein powder.
Since there is no added eggs, protein would only come from flour and fruit, but hardly enough.
So I added the chocolate flavour whey and I used 99% dark chocolate as a chocolate flavour booster.
The one I used was really really strong and bitter, but it worked pretty well with rye flour. Next time I’ll try with a less pure one.
The reason why I chose the rye flour is…I could bore you for hours pontificating on the fantastic uses and values of this “woooonderful floooour”, but I won’t…it was just to throw in a little suspense…truth is: it had been lying around open for a
In any case, it has a very special taste and is so fragrant. Bread baked from this flour is spectacular .
I use this recipe primarily for snacks and for breakfast, if they survive the kitchen predator raids. Usually they are wiped out during the day, and often the snacks become more than my daily 2.
In short, when I prepare a batch of these brownies it’s hard to have them for breakfast the next day.
