I think ya’ll are going to love this recipe. I could probably eat it most everyday and certainly every night with my casein and peanut butter (see below).
The ingredient list is long, especially for me, but it’s worth it. You can tell it has wheat flour, but I think thats a given with any healthy treat. I’ve made it a few times now and it is consistently amazing. This time I used Hershey’s Special Dark baking cocoa and the brownies are darker than the chocolate chips! Looks funny, but tastes wonderful.
Also- I used Ghiradelli 60% baking chips. They’re wider and flatter than regular chocolate morsels, which makes it seem like there’s more in the brownies.
Geoff says they don’t taste like brownies, which I guess is true. But they’re healthy! I’d rather eat them and not blow my macros out of the water any day.
Milly wishes she could have some.
I wasn’t expecting that an empty protein container with a few pieces of dog food inside would be such a great toy. She’s ripped apart all her others and chases this one around the house now.
