They asked me if I could come up with a “recipe” to share , so I did !
I have been drinking this protein along with my GNC Egg protein as a recovery drink post workout but was dying to create something .
Here is what happened when I played in the kitchen !

While that is baking , let’s make some protein frosting !

Mix together until you have a smooth texture ! You can even microwave it for a few seconds!

Once brownies have cooked , frost away!

Now I frosted mine and topped them with some unsweetened coconut flakes !

Yummmmoooo!
Now the good people over at GNC never said to make a “healthy” recipe per se ! So go ahead and make these as a treat , but Do Not eat the whole tray !
