Brownies are usually a no-no when it comes to healthy eating but not these ones! This recipe is from Jen Comas over at EliteFTS and she is always posting new recipes and her training log there is a really good read if you want to know more about physique training.

 

 

 

 

I had to make a couple minor changes because I didn’t have all the ingredients the night I tried making these and they turned out amazing still. Give them a try, they’ll surely satisfy your sweet tooth.

    Yummm, these sounds great, I can't wait to make them.
    Question: do you just grind up blanched almonds to make the almond flour??

    I buy my almond flour from bulk barn but you can definitely make your own from blanched almonds using either a food processor or a blender.

    oh I think I am have to try these! What should you be looking for when you purchase protein powder??? That will help with your daily protein count … good vs. bad protein powder?

    I like to use a whey protein powder because the quality of whey protein is better than soy or vegetable protein. I like whey isolate because it's more concentrated but that can be more expensive. I would just go with a whey protein with little no carbs.

      Hey there! You could use all almond flour, they may come out a little crumbly that way, but are extremely moist. I’ve also heard some people say that whole wheat/rice/kamut/spelt flour works as well. I’ve only ever made it with ground oats and once with gluten free bake mix (which was a mix of various flours) turned out great.

      Hope that helps!
