5 Tastier Tips!

Want to add a little extra to your protein brownies? Here are a few tips to make them even better while still keeping them healthy!

- Honey; Add a little honey into the mix of your protein brownies, or drizzle honey over your brownies instead of frosting!

- Nuts; Add nuts into your mix to add a little extra protein boost, or sprinkle them on top of your frosted brownies!

- Almond Milk (Sweetened vanilla); Add a little extra rich flavor to your brownies by using Vanilla Almond Milk instead of Skim Milk into your frosting.
