Foodie Friday Recipe: High-Protein Gluten-Free Fudge Brownies
If you’re looking for a low-carb, gluten-free sweet treat, you’ve found it! These gooey high-protein fudge brownies are so delectable you’ll swear they’re bad for you!
Low-carb dieters can sometimes find themselves missing their favorite desserts, but with these fudge brownies, you won’t need to break your diet or feel any guilt. These amazing treats are high in protein, low in carbs, and still have the rich, fudgy taste and texture you crave in a brownie. Instead of refined flour and sugar, these brownies are loaded with healthy ingredients that provide your body with healthy protein, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatories.
Protein helps keep you feeling full for longer, and also helps boost metabolism, while cocoa powder contains healthy anti-inflammatory antioxidants that help protect the nervous and cardiovascular systems (1), and lower insulin resistance (2).
If you would prefer, feel free to leave off the toppings – they are just as good without them!
