Muscle Milk {Protein} Brownies


No need to worry about the proposed dessert tax that may accompany the new FDA dietary guidelines. These brownies are high in protein but, low in added sugar.

Muscle Milk {Protein} Brownies
Ingredients 
1/4 Cup Oats
3/4 Cup plain Greek Yogurt
1/2 Cup honey or Agave
1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
1/2 Cup chocolate Muscle Milk protein powder
1/4 Cup liquid egg whites
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla

Optional: ½ cup chopped almond pieces 

Frosting
2 Tbs chocolate Muscle Milk protein powder
3 Tbs honey or agave
1/2 Cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4 Tbs cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbs natural peanut butter


Directions
Preheat oven to 350. In the blender, add oats first and grind into flour. Combine remaining brownie ingredients and blend well. Stir in the nuts if desired. Pour into a greased 8×8 baking dish and bake for 25 minutes. Combine frosting ingredients in a small bowl and set aside. Frost while still warm. Dust with Himalayan sea salt or espresso grounds if desired.

These power bites taste more like a protein bar than a pan of brownies,
but without the aftermath of a sugar spike,
they energize and build lean muscle.
