"Healthy brownies" may sound too good to be true, but with the triple-chocolate combination of cocoa powder, bittersweet morsels, and Signature Chocolate Whey, these brownies are the real deal. Almond flour helps keep the carbs low, while Greek yogurt and coconut oil provide healthy fats and protein. Chopped Cookies and Cream Crunch bar adds an extra chocolate cookie surprise when you bite into these rich and delicious protein brownies. Whip up a batch to take to your next summer barbecue, or save them all for your post-workout stash!
