a high protein brownie that's easy to make, delicious AND good for you too! made with simple, healthy ingredients, this will become your go-to dessert.
majority of my life i've either not eaten the brownies or felt awful after and i know that i'm not alone in this! as a kid, when we made brownies, i would have trouble stopping when i got full or just ate the brownies straight from the pan.
and to be honest, sometimes i still do take a spoon right to the pan but the difference is that i listen more intuitively to how my body is feeling now when i get full. it's all about balance!
this high protein brownie recipe is perfect when you're craving a brownie but don't want to worry about having a whole tray in the house. PLUS! it's packed with protein and still has that delicious, fudgy brownie flavor.
