It happened again!
So many of you on facebook guessed pretty darn close to today’s recipe! Guess you guys really know us, hehe.
Chocolate and mint are always a good first guess.
Mint chocolate chip protein fudge brownie bars recipe.
Do you remember our peppermint candy cane hemp protein bars? One of our favorites!! We ate them a lot! Now we wanted to make them a little differently yet the same.
Easy dessert recipes are the best recipes. And this protein fudge brownie is super easy to make! Oh yay!
Basically we followed the original protein brownie bars that are already egg, grain, soy, and of course gluten-free but changed up the frosting!
We thought of doing our banana coconut fudge on top of the protein brownie bars. So we started whipping up the fudge as the brownies were cooling. Then we realized that the fudge probably won’t be enough to really cover the brownies. We wanted a thick, rich frosting for these ultimate mint brownie bars.
Oh.. what… do we do now? —> we thought.
We came up with adding in an avocado and some coconut oil, which turns out to be close to our banana avocado frosting that we used on our pumpkin brownie cupcakes recipe. Unsure of exactly how it would turn out, but we had a STRONG feeling it would be a-m-a-z-i-n-g!
And it was!
Perfectly rich, smooth and velvety. And the avocados also helped with adding in some more natural green color. Brilliant!
These brownies need to be shared, as they are far too dangerous to be left alone with. We are totally obsessed and think you will too!
If you love chocolate and mint this recipe is for YOU!
We could eat like a hundred and still not get sick of them (ok…probably get a little sick). Basically you need to make them. Why? Because they are awesome!
They are very visually appealing too, with the pale green contrasting with the brown of the chocolate. Love it!
