5 Ingredient Chocolate Cherry Protein Brownies

Delicious and moist cherry chocolate brownies that are great for any occasion.



1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

4 Tbsp cacao powder

1 20 oz. can of No Sugar Added Cherry Pie Filling

1 tsp baking powder

1 scoop protein powder (I used Dymatize Birthday Cake Flavor)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350° and grease an 8 x 8 baking dish
  2. Mix together all of your dry ingredients
  3. Add the creamy peanut butter to the dry ingredients and mix well
  4. Open the can of NSA Cherry Pie filling and take out the cherries leaving as much of the filling behind. Set the filling aside for later use.
  5. Fold the cherries into the rest of the ingredients
  6. Spread the batter into the prepared baking dish.
  7. Bake the brownies at 350° for 25 minutes


I used Dymatize ISO 100 for these brownies but feel free to use your protein of choice. If you prefer slightly crispier brownies over gooey ones, bake the brownies for 5-7 minutes longer depending on how crispy you like them.

For the frosting, mix together 60 grams of pie filling with 10 grams of cacao powder. I suggest adding some sweetener like liquid stevia to give the frosting a slightly sweeter taste.
