Review—Naked Nutrition’s Protein Brownie Mix

Posted April 10, 2023 by in Health + Fitness

I have a big sweet tooth. When I go to a restaurant, and I have to choose between getting an appetizer or a dessert—the dessert option always wins. I also love to bake— a hobby I haven’t indulged in for awhile—mainly because I now avoid added sugar as much as I can, and I no longer have a bunch of co-workers to help me eat the treats thanks to that ‘work from home’ life.

My favorite sweet treat to make? Brownies. I used to make them all the time. They are affordable to make, unlike cake, which often requires frosting, and they satisfy the chocolate craving, the cake craving, and the cookie craving—all at once. You can thank those crispy corner pieces for that. Yum! 

I don’t think my sweet tooth will be going anywhere anytime soon, however I now make healthier choices as often as I can when it comes to dessert, and I’m so thankful I was introduced to Naked Nutrition’s healthy protein brownie mix.

If you’re on the hunt for healthier dessert options to satisfy your sweet tooth, check out my review of the Naked Brownie mix from Naked Nutrition:

Naked Nutrition Protein Brownie Review

Naked Nutrition’s Protein Brownie Mix Review

So, what is it?

Naked Brownie is a high-protein, low-sugar brownie baking mix. The protein comes from whey protein, and the sweetness comes from coconut sugar. These brownies are extremely easy to make (just add water), and the high protein content aids in post-workout recovery by stabilizing your appetite and increasing your energy. Unlike most sweets, these brownies are filling and help ensure you’re achieving your protein goals—without all the calories.

The best part?

Despite them having 15g of protein and only 9g of sugar, they are delicious, and honestly, they taste like the brownie mixes you would find at the store that are just empty calories. Per serving, there are only 230 calories and each batch makes 5 servings.

Naked Brownie Directions

These protein brownies from Naked Nutrition are so easy to make—even easier than the boxes you find at the grocery store—which usually need water, eggs, and oil. This mix only requires water. Like I said, easy!

Ingredients:

*Makes 5 servings

Step One: Pre-heat oven to 350 and grease a baking pan—I used canola oil.

Step Two: Shake the mix to evenly distribute the chocolate chips

Step Three: Open the container and remove the scoop—this part is a bit messy

Step Four: Put 10 scoops into a mixing bowl

Step Five: Directions say to add 6-7 oz of water—I added 3/4 a cup and it was perfect.

Step Six: Stir until evenly combined

Step Seven: Add mixture to greased baking pan

Step Eight: Bake for 20-25 minutes and then let cool.

*I baked mine for exactly 25 minutes and I let them cool for 20 minutes before serving.

Step Nine: Enjoy!

Pros and Cons of Naked Brownie

Pros

  • High in protein
  • Low in sugar
  • Contains soluble fiber
  • Contains chocolate chips (made with stevia)
  • The brownies have the same texture as traditional high-calorie brownies
  • Extremely easy to make—only one ingredient.
  • Each mix makes two matches of brownies
  • They’re delicious

Cons

  • Each mix is $19.99
  • Getting the scoop out is a messy ordeal—powder will get everywhere since it’s filled to the top.

*While this mix is more expensive than the average brownie mix, it does contain enough to make two batches of brownies and the only ingredient is water. Almost all of the grocery store mixes require oil and eggs, and with the cost of eggs these days? Yikes!

Overall, I really liked this brownie mix and I think it’s a great addition to any pantry. Especially if you’re trying to make healthier choices when it comes to your sweets. Not only do they have the protein brownie mix, Naked Nutrition also has protein pancake mix and protein banana bread mix. I have not tried either of them—but after liking the brownie mix, I want to give them a try soon.
