I’m finding out that here are endless ways to make brownies a healthy and nutritionally beneficial treat with Trulean Chocolate Brownie Plant Based Protein!

Which is crazy to me because I was raised on brownies-from-a-box and for most of my life I had no idea that brownies could be healthy and taste JUST AS GOOD as their sugary counterparts. 

This recipe really takes the healthy factor to brand new heights by combining black beans with protein powder for an extreme boost of both protein and fiber! We lightly sweeten it with raw honey - which has a host of its own nutritional benefits - and finish it off with some stevia-sweetened chocolate chips​.

Try not to forget how healthy these sweet, chocolate morsels are while you’re downing it with a glass of cold milk! Or do forget - it will still be healthy and in-line with your fitness goals either way!
