Hey guys, so I love a healthy diet but let's be real...who doesn't love chocolate! The good thing is it doesn't have to be "unhealthy" to have your chocolate fix. These pre/post workout brownies combine my love of chocolate and the proper nutrients to fuel me up before or after a workout. The boyfriend even loves them. These brownies have a great combo of protein, healthy carbs, fiber and fat. To fuel yourself properly you need this combination of macros nutrients. If you're looking to build lean muscle then you need some carbs. If you cut the carbs too drastically then the protein you consume will be used for energy rather than your muscle growth! After I make these, I slice them up into single portion sizes place in a reusable glass tupperware container and refrigerate so I can have them for snacks all week. Think of these as a homemade power bar.
