My brownie recipe list is certainly growing, but only to get better and better! These gluten-free, high protein brownies, containing pieces of chunky chocolate are the perfect healthy snack.
Help! I can’t stop making brownies! They are just so easy to make and always taste amazing….even these healthier versions I promise! They are also great for adding in extra protein…. as well as natural sources of protein such as egg, I also added some protein shake as well as a protein bar to the recipe! This adds not only yummy flavour but that protein kick that will keep you fuller for longer. If you prefer not to add protein shake you could sub this for almond milk and likewise you could sub the protein bar for chunks of regular chocolate.
Each bar is around 90 calories and contains 7g protein, 7g Carbs and 4g Fat. I don’t track my calories or macros anymore, but I know some of you do and therefore I always include them in my recipes. It is also useful to have a rough idea of what your eating during the day, as with my fitness lifestyle I do try to ensure I am getting in enough protein. That is why snacks such as these are so handy!
Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram if you make them as I love seeing your pics….cleanleanbakes
