The Best Brownie Protein Bars

Hands down, these are the best protein bars we’ve ever made! They are moist, rich and fudgy with no added sugar or flour.

Plus, each bar has over 11 grams of protein!

How’s that for a win-win?! These are a great snack to pack with you on-the-go or as a quick, easy breakfast any day. For this recipe, we use dark chocolate chips, and here’s why…

3 Benefits of Eating Dark Chocolate

  1. 75% or higher dark chocolate is loaded with compounds called flavonoids which prevent fat-like substances in the bloodstream from clogging arteries, thereby decreasing the risk of heart attack and stroke
  2. The flavonoids in dark chocolate also modulate nitric oxide, a compound that is critical for healthy blood flow and blood pressure. In a study in the America Journal of Clinical Nutrition, it was reported that dark chocolate decreased blood pressure AND improved insulin sensitivity.
  3. Dark chocolate contains magnesium, one of the most important minerals for heart health.

So it’s safe to say including a little dark chocolate in your life will allow you to reap great health benefits.

However, we recommend looking for high quality, high cocoa content dark chocolate ~ look for at least 75% or higher and check the ingredient list to make sure there aren’t any hydrogenated oils or artificial ingredients.

Get ready to have your protein bar routine totally up-leveled!

With this easy recipe, you won’t ever need to buy store-bought bars ever again.
