This recipe began as a challenge: Try to create something exceptional with limited ingredients. I wanted to capture the best "health benefits" a brownie could bring while still giving the bakery a run for its money. I've tried many variations and protein flavors, but never achieved the richness and texture a true brownie brings.


  • 1 scoop Muscle Milk protein powder, Natural Chocolate
  • ½ scoop Muscle Milk Complete Whey, Cocoa Bean
  • 1 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 1 tsp water
  • ⅛ tsp baking powder


  1. Combine all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl.
  2. Stir in small amounts of water until you reach a brownie-batter consistency.
  3. Microwave for one minute, check and stir, then microwave again for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Microwaves vary, so be careful not to overcook. You want a brownie texture—soft and gooey!
