Healthy Triple Chocolate Fudge Protein Brownies
You know how when you’re reading a book and you come across a particular word that sticks in your mind, and not much later you hear it in a completely different scenario? That’s kind of what happened to me recently with protein bars. Ever since I made my first protein bars at home, I’ve noticed how many people buy them from the store. I feel like I see it everywhere, someone buying one from a vending machine, a muscle head chowing down on one on his way out the gym, a bar sitting on someone’s desk waiting to be eaten, someone in front of me at the checkout line buying bars in every flavor possible, etc etc etc. I’m not going to lie, I did that myself… especially with Luna bars. My goodness those things they are addicting.
But one other thing I’ll admit is that I used to be obsessed with Lenny&Larry’s® Muscle Brownies (just like how I was obsessed with Chocolate Muscle Milk). But why buy those expensive, sugary, processed products when you can make a healthy version at home? A healthy version that tastes even better than anything inside a plastic wrapper can provide.
Just like my Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars, these are fudgy and chocolatey. They taste like a serious diet-buster but are totally diet-approved.
I decided to compare my nutrition label to Lenny&Larry’s® Muscle Brownies.
L&L’s label is on the left, DWB’s is on the right:
- 70 less calories
- ZERO cholesterol
- Less saturated fat, sodium, carbohydrates and sugar
- More fiber, calcium and iron
- A whole lotta loooovee
All that for TRIPLE. CHOCOLATE. FUDGE. BROWNIES.
Yes, believe it. Life is good.
Edit: Life is good with one of these Healthy Triple Chocolate Fudge Protein Brownies in your mouth hand.
