This section of our website is for recipes and tips shared by Ninja users, so they have not been tested by us and we do not have nutritional information for recipes.

If you are trying to increase your protein intake – this recipe is perfect for you. It is gluten-free, refined sugar free and overall guilt-free! Adding the sweet potato means you do not have to add fatty ingredients like butter or large amount of oil as the sweet potato adds moisture to the recipe. You can veganise this recipe simply by swapping to a plant-based protein powder and chia/flax eggs

Protein Chocolate Brownies

5 - 3 reviews


  • 700g sweet potato - peeled and diced
  • 100g gluten free oats
  • 70g chocolate whey protein
  • 3 tbsp stevia
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 5 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 protein bars of choice
Prep Time


  1. Begin by peeling the sweet potato and dicing

  2. Boil the sweet potatoes in hot water until tender

  3. Pre-heat the oven to 170c degrees

  4. Allow to cool then place the boiled sweet potatoes in the bowl of you Ninja Kitchen System with the metal blade – add the remaining ingredients minus the protein bars and pulse until you achieve a thick chocolaty dough

  5. Place the brownie dough in a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper (you want the brownies to be about 4cm thick)

  6. Chop the protein bars into small chunks and sprinkle evenly over the brownies

  7. Place the brownies in the oven and bake for approximately 30-35 minutes – reduce the temperature if you feel the brownies are crispy on top

  8. Remove the brownies from the oven and let the brownies cool completely before removing from the baking tray (top tip – I find that letting them cool completely and then placing them in the fridge for 1-2 hours – allow you to then cut them perfectly)

I have always had an interest for the healthy food industry, thehealthybeard started completely out of the blue – I started posting pictures of the breakfasts and desserts that I would make, within weeks my Instagram began to grow and people would ask me for the recipes. In 2014 I decided to quit eating animal based products and follow a plant-based diet and never looked back! My recipes focus on quick and easy plant-based dishes that are accessible to people. I love to inspire and encourage others to follow a healthy lifestyle. You can keep up to date with my recipes via my Blog and Instagram.
