1/4 cup gluten free rolled oats

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder


1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1 egg

1 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2/3 cup Vanilla or Chocolate Almond Milk

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1/4 cup chocolate chips, plus 2 tablespoons for topping

1/2 cup raspberries, broken up into large pieces

1/4 cup chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 8×8 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Place oats in blender and blend for a minute or until they resemble the consistency of flour. Transfer oat flour to medium bowl then whisk in protein powder and cocoa powder; set aside.

Whisk together applesauce, egg, honey, vanilla and almond milk until smooth and well combined. Add to dry ingredients and mix together until just combined.

Heat coconut oil and 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips in a small saucepan over very low heat; stir continuously until all chocolate chips and coconut oil have melted together. (You can also microwave for 30-45 seconds.) Gently stir into brownie batter, along with chopped walnuts (optional).

Pour mixture into prepared pan. Sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips and raspberries on top. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until just cooked through and the top has set. Transfer pan to wire rack to cool completely. Once cool, cut into 12 bars — please note that bars should be kept covered in the refrigerator. ENJOY!
