What makes these brownies fantastic is that they are rich, gooey, delicious, and chock-full of protein. They are also Mom-approved, so you know they’re good.
A good friend of mine texted me a recipe she made from Big Man’s World blog. I knew I had to check it out; I am always looking for healthy & satisfying brownies recipes ❤ I modified the recipe to work for me, and below is the result!
Like most things, these brownies are delicious with a tall glass of milk. The added walnuts are optional, but they do provide a wonderful texture, flavor, and even some protein. 🙂
Do not hesitate in making these brownies! They are great as a dessert, post-workout snack, or just whenever you need some chocolate in your life.
