Every so often you get a massive chocolate craving that you just can’t ignore. Tonight was one of those nights for me.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a cake or pie person and I am not the type to sit and eat a chocolate bar (truffles are another story) BUT put cookies or a pan of brownies in front of me and I can rival any competitive eater. It’s shameful but true.
Enter Shakeology brownies. Four to five (one is optional) HEALTHY ingredients and that’s it! Chocolate craving gone!
My kids actually ate these for breakfast the other day. Yep, that’s how healthy and full of good stuff they are!
Now, I used Shakeology for this brownies, hence the name, because it’s my super food shake that I drink daily. Could you use another type of “protein powder?” Though Shakeology is SO much more than a protein powder, I guess you could. I haven’t tested it, so you are on your own with what you use and how it tastes. These came out more of a fudgey brownie than a cakey one. That’s the way I prefer my brownies.
The flavor of Shakeology is also up to you. I used Vanilla and 1/4 of cacao powder for a richer chocolate flavor. If you use chocolate Shakeology, I wouldn’t use as much cacao powder, maybe 2 tablespoons. The new Cafe Latte flavor would be great too! Coffee and chocolate go wonderfully together!
