Packed with the goodness of collagen, these brownies are a delightful way to embrace both flavor and potential beauty benefits in every bite.
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup coconut sugar *
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 scoop (about 10g) unflavored collagen powder
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
Chopped nuts (optional, for added texture)
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and line an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter in the microwave or on the stovetop. Let it cool slightly.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.
Add the melted butter to the sugar mixture and mix until smooth.
Sift in the cocoa powder, flour, and salt. Stir until all the dry ingredients are fully incorporated into the batter.
Gently fold in the unflavored collagen powder. This addition provides potential beauty benefits while not compromising the taste or texture of the brownies.
If you're using chocolate chips or nuts, fold them into the batter at this point.
Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it evenly.
Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs.
Allow the brownies to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then lift them out using the parchment paper and let them cool completely on a wire rack.
Once cooled, cut into squares and enjoy!
*Nadia's Notes: Beware!
For those of you who would rather use sugar instead of coconut sugar or a good quality honey remember that SUGAR breaks down collagen and sugar feeds cancer!
These are all the areas where SUGAR will affect your skin.
