Protein Banana Walnut Brownies

Protein is important to eat with every meal and post-workout to spare muscle mass loss.  This is especially true when you are dieting.  

Banana Walnut Brownies


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 12 scoops vanilla protein powder
  • 2 cups walnut meal (grind the walnuts in a blender…that’s it!)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 2 medium bananas (very soft, mashed)* I used frozen, thawed over-ripe bananas from my freezer
  • 2 large Omega-3 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp pasture butter
  • 2 Tbsp water as needed

Mix the dry ingredients together in one bowl and the wet ingredients in another. Then mix the two bowls together. If needed, add a tbsp or two of water to mix well. 

Heat oven to 350F. Place ingredients in a metal 7 x 11 non-stick baking pan and bake at 350F for 12 mins until a knife comes out clean from the SIDES of the pan (not the middle). It should be slightly undercooked in the middle when you first take it out. If you bake this too long it will be very dry.
