Paleo and Keto Approved Buckeye Protein Brownies

Written by Armine K — September 10, 2019

Have you ever heard of a Buckeye Brownie? Traditionally, its a decadent chocolate brownie, topped with peanut butter and chocolate. It reminds us a little bit of a gourmet version of a Resee's peanut butter cup. For our most recent recipe, we made a completely paleo and keto approved version of this underappreciated delicacy! Hope you enjoy.


Brownie Ingredients:

  • 6 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ½ cup melted dark chocolate
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • One scoop Rootz Protein Superfood
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder

Topping Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond butter
  • ½ cup honey


Brownie Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350℉.
  • In a large bowl, mix oil, chocolate, coconut sugar, and egg.
  • Add coconut flour, Rootz Protein Superfood, cocoa powder, and mix more.
  • Pour into a greased and/or parchment lined small brownie pan(6”x6”) or loaf pan.
  • Bake for 25 minutes.
  • Take out of the oven and let cool completely.

Buckeye Topping Instructions:

  • Mix together nut butter and maple syrup in a separate bowl


  • Spread buckeye mixture in a thick layer over the cooled brownies.

  • Pour extra melted chocolate over the brownie
  • Let it cool, and enjoy!

    Could peanut butter sub for the almond butter?
