A brownie so yummy you can't wait to indulge. But wait, it's actually HEALTHY too?!
These delicious and nutritious Pumpkin Protein Brownie Bites, are loaded with the goodness of pumpkin, protein and hearty grains. And they taste great too! Now that's what I call a win/win!
I love enjoying one as a pre or post workout snack because they offer a great balance of protein, carbs and fats, and of course they make a great sweet after dinner treat.
