  2.  combine warm water, peanut butter and sweetener in a bowl
  3. in a separate bowl. sift together the protein powder, coconut flour, cocoa and baking powder;  Mix the dry ingredients in with the wet.  a thick batter that has the consistency of a frosting will form.
  4. Fill the greased pan with batter; smooth the surface and place the chocolate chips and optional nuts on top and press in just a bit to secure.
  5. Bake for about 40 to 45 minutes  or until a knife comes out clean when inserted.
  6. Let cool.  Slice into any amount  of squares and enjoy.

I calculated that this would make about 8 brownies
