  • 2 medium ripe avocados
  • 1/2 cup of sugar-free maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 2 servings of No Cow Chocolate Protein Powder
  • 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup of sugar-free chocolate chips (suggest using stevia sweetened)
  • 3/4 cups of water (can sub for almond or another dairy free milk)
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp of espresso powder
  • 2 tbsp of gluten-free flour


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and lightly grease your square baking pan with vegan butter and dust lightly with cocoa powder - tap out excess
  2. In a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, whip your peeled avocados until they are smooth
  3. Next, add in your maple syrup, salt, vanilla extract, baking powder, and espresso powder
  4. Using a rubber spatula, scrape down the sides of the bowl and add in your No Cow Vegan Chocolate protein powder and your cocoa powder
  5. Next add in your water to loosen the batter
  6. Using your rubber spatula, remove the bowl from your mixing attachments and fold in your gluten free flour and your sugar-free chocolate chips
  7. Pour your batter into your prepared pan and bake for 55 minutes to 1 hour
  8. Once the top is crackled and the brownies are baked through, let them cool for at least 2 hours before serving, this allows them to set
  9. Serve and enjoy your dense and fudgy avocado healthy brownies!

Come to think of it, this product is different. All other powder canisters are made of plastic, and are only partially recyclable. That also means they're still partially harmful on the environment.


An estimated 75% of all aluminum ever produced in the US is still in use today. On the other hand, only about 9% of all plastics ever made have been recycled. Our revolutionary aluminum canister design makes it the only 100% recyclable protein powder in the market. Scoop and all. Making steps towards a more sustainable future.
