Why Collagen Peptides + MCT Oil?
Collagen is an exceptional protein source known for its role in promoting joint health, bone density, and vibrant skin. Meanwhile, MCT oil provides quick, sustained energy to fuel your day. By harmonizing the power of collagen peptides and MCT oil in these brownies, you're treating yourself to a delicious snack that nourishes from within. The great thing about feed that brain’s Collagen + MCT Oil powder is that you get two products in one!
Ingredients You'll Need:
- 1/2 cup coconut oil (or butter), melted
- 1/4 cup Chocolate Collagen + MCT oil Powder
- 1 cup granulated sugar or natural sweetener of choice
- 3 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup all-purpose or your favorite GF flour
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or nuts (optional)
Baking Up the Goodness:
1. Preheat and Prep
Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease an 8x8 inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal later.
2. Mix Wet Ingredients
In a mixing bowl, combine the melted coconut oil (or butter) and MCT oil. Incorporate the granulated sugar until your mixture is velvety smooth.
3. Egg-citing Additions
Add the large eggs, one at a time, into your mixture. As you blend, you'll notice the batter becoming richer and more luscious. Don't forget to stir in that teaspoon of vanilla extract for that extra flavor kick!
4. Collagen Infusion
Gently fold in a scoop of collagen powder, ensuring it's evenly dispersed throughout the batter. This is where the magic of skin and joint health comes into play.
5. Dry Ingredients Meet Wet
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and a pinch of salt. Gradually combine this dry mixture with the wet mixture, stirring until just merged. Remember, we want that brownie texture to shine through.
6. Chocoholic's Delight (Optional)
If you're a true chocoholic, now's the time to fold in those chocolate chips, nuts, or any other toppings you're craving, we all have cravings!
7. Into the Pan
Pour your brownie batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly. Take a moment to appreciate the anticipation of the chocolatey aroma that's about to fill your kitchen.
8. Bake to Perfection
Slide that pan into the preheated oven and let your brownies bake for 20-25 minutes. The key is to check for that perfectly fudgy consistency - a toothpick inserted into the center should come out with a few moist crumbs.
9. Cool and Savor
Once baked, let your brownies cool in the pan for about 10-15 minutes. Gently lift them out using the parchment paper and place them on a wire rack to cool completely. Now's the hardest part – waiting!
10. Slice and Indulge
Once your brownies are cool, slice them into squares. Now you can dig in and savor the melding of flavors, all while knowing you've treated your taste buds and your body!
