Are you sitting down????
I actually baked! Like for real baked! Not a box mix or anything!
I know right!
Last week the very generous people over at GNC Canada sent me a huge tub of this
They asked me if I could come up with a “recipe” to share , so I did !
I have been drinking this protein along with my GNC Egg protein as a recovery drink post workout but was dying to create something .
Here is what happened when I played in the kitchen !
Protein PB2 Brownies
For the brownies you will need
1 cup of butter
2 cups sugar or agave nectar equivalent
1 cup if unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup of PB2
1 cup of flour
4 scoops of GNC whey powder
1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce
1/2 tsp baking powder
Dash of salt
1 tsp if good vanilla extract
Melt butter , add eggs,vanilla,sugar and mix
Add remaining ingredients and gently fold together
Don’t over mix
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Line a 9×13 pan with Parchment paper and then spoon mixture into pan
Bake for 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean!
While that is baking , let’s make some protein frosting !
You will need
1 block of cream cheese – softened
1/2 pkg of sugar free white chocolate pudding mix
3 scoops of GNC whey powder
1/4 cup of PB2
Splash of milk
Mix together until you have a smooth texture ! You can even microwave it for a few seconds!
Once brownies have cooked , frost away!
Now I frosted mine and topped them with some unsweetened coconut flakes !
Now the good people over at GNC never said to make a “healthy” recipe per se ! So go ahead and make these as a treat , but Do Not eat the whole tray !
GNC has provided me with a gift to giveaway to my adoring followers so I will post a second blog post with all those details! They are just so nice over there at GNC !
Stay tuned because you will want to enter this rafflecopter giveaway !
Cheers friends !
