Atkins Net Carbs = Total Carbohydrates – Fiber – Sugar Alcohols/Glycerin (if applicable)



  • 8 Tbsp Cream Cheese, original
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 4 each Egg
  • 0 1/2 cup Pumpkin, canned, mashed
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3 scoop (1 scoop= 30 g) Quest Chocolate Milkshake Protein Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Flour
  • 0 3/4 tsp Cinnamon, ground
  • 0 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 0 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 4 tbsp Lily's Sugar Free Chocolate Chips


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.  Line a square baking pan with foil and spray with oil.  Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl (or bowl of an electric mixer) blend the softened cream cheese with the coconut oil until smooth.  Add eggs one at a time beating between each one.  Add the pumpkin puree and vanilla blending all until smooth.
  3. Add the chocolate protein powder*, cocoa powder, coconut flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.  Blend into a thick batter.  
  4. Pour batter into prepared pan, sprinkle chocolate chips evenly on top and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with just a few crumbs.  Do not over bake; the brownies will puff up while cooking but will deflate slightly once cooled.  Cut into 12 brownies and enjoy immediately or keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
  5. Optional:  Make Protein Packed Chocolate Frosting to spread or dollop on top of brownies once cooled.
*3 scoops of protein powder is equal to 1 cup.
