Chocolate Protein Brownies

Chocolate Protein Brownies

These brownies are a sweet treat you can feel great about! The typical brownies you’d find in the bakery or grocery store are filled with blood sugar-spiking carbohydrates, unhealthy fats, and low in protein. Here’s what makes these brownies a guilt-free, indulgent treat:

  • They have healthy carbohydrates: Almond flour is a great alternative to grains because it has a lower glycemic index, meaning it doesn’t spike blood sugar as much as other flours. It’s also a prebiotic, acting as food for the gut bacteria, aiding overall digestive function.
  • They have healthy sugars: Just like almond flour, maple syrup has a lower glycemic index than traditional white or brown sugar. This prevents that dreaded sugar crash that is usually associated with traditional brownies.
  • They have proteins: Thanks to Iron Vegan’s Sprouted protein, these brownies give you a boost of protein. Protein is important because it helps increase satiety levels and provides the body with essential amino acids. It’s also important for muscle repair and recovery, meaning this is a great pre or post-workout snack!
