1/2 cup (60 g) vanilla whey protein powder
1/4 cup (30 g) almond meal
1/2 cup (50 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon instant coffee crystals (regular or decaf, as you prefer)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (120 g, 1 stick) butter
2 large eggs
1/4 cup (60 ml) water
6 ounces (170 g) sugar-free chocolate chips
OR 6 ounces (170 g) sugar-free dark chocolate bars, chopped to chocolate-chip-size in the food processor

Makes 25 smaller brownies or 16 bigger brownies

Put Splenda or sugar, vanilla whey protein, almond meal, cocoa, instant coffee crystals, and salt in a food processor with the S-blade in place.

Pulse to combine.

Add the butter and pulse until the butter is "cut in"—well combined with the dry ingredients. Turn out into a bowl.

Mix in the eggs, one at a time, beating well with a whisk after each.

Then beat in the water.

Finally, stir in the chocolate chips or chopped-up chocolate bars. Spray an 8" × 8" (20 × 20 cm) pan with nonstick cooking spray, and spread batter evenly in the pan.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes—do not over bake! Cool, and cut into squares.
