Fudgy Protein Collagen Brownies
4 tablespoons of butter, melted, or for a dairy-free option, use coconut oil
½ cup sugar or equivalent of baking sugar alternative
Pinch of salt
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup cocoa powder
2 tablespoons Essential elements® Collagen Peptides
Preheat the oven to 350 ℉.
Prepare a loaf pan (8 ½ x 4 ½ inches) by lining it with parchment paper or foil.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder, collagen peptides, protein powder, and salt.
Place the sugar and the melted butter in a medium-sized mixing bowl and whisk together until combined. Add the eggs one at a time, whisking after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract, then set aside the whisk. Add the dry ingredients, stirring in gently with a spoon or spatula, making sure to scrape down the bowl as you go so that the mixture is fully incorporated.
Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth out the top. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with moist crumbs but no wet batter attached. Let cool in the pan for 15 minutes on a rack, then use the liner to lift out the brownies and set them on the rack to finish cooling.
