Black Forest Protein Brownies with Cream Frosting & Raspberries

by | Updated: December 4th, 2016

When I was young, I never cared for chocolate and fruit. The combination was too sophisticated for my juvenile tastes. Luckily, my preferences have evolved and now I enjoy this winning food duo–as often as I can! I’ve found that eating chocolate doesn’t feel quite as sinful if you’ve got a serving of fruit to go along with it. Add a healthy dose of protein to the mix and all guilt disappears. That’s why I love these Black Forest Protein Brownies. Packed with protein and topped with fresh raspberries, this scintillating dessert will satisfy dieters and chocolate-lovers alike.
