These protein, low sugar, low carb brownies are sure to satisfy your chocolate cravings!! I’m using the new yummy Cookies ‘n Cream Quest Bar too!! Quest Bars are simply amazing! These low carb protein bars tastes like a candy bar to me! Plus they are all natural which makes me even happier!
One note about this recipe is that I used 2 different kinds of protein: Whey & Casein. The reason for this is because I prefer to bake with casein over whey, but I also like a blend of both. Casein is thicker and just seems to cook better than whey. Whey seems to sometimes make the product turn out too dry. So you are welcome to use one or the other (or both like me!), but your texture may turn out different. It’s not always easy to cook with protein powders, so don’t beat yourself up if the finished product doesn’t look like my pictures.
