Chocolate Fudge, Peanut Butter, Protein Brownies

Over the years I have adjusted my tastebuds to craving less salt and less sweetness in my foods. For example my Starbucks visits transformed from grande, white chocolate mocha frapps, to the same thing with only two pumps of sugar, then one pump of sugar, and now I drink coffee with milk and a little bit of sweetener if I feel like it. The best part is, those sugary drinks do not taste good to me anymore.

And while these brownies will not replace a decadent fudge brownie, they do a good job at satisfying my chocolate needs, provide to be a convenient snack and give me some extra protein in my diet. Enjoy!!

  • 1 can of Libby’s Pumpkin Puree
  • 3 TBSP of peanut butter
