Happy Monday! It’s been a Birthday frenzy at my house. Both my daughters have Birthday’s in April and while I love cake, especially frosting, I cannot eat cake for every party we have. I did indulge a bit in this beautiful cake my mom made for my daughter Chloe, but I paid the price later. I am pretty sensitive to dairy and this cake had a whipped cream frosting, which was very yummy! I cannot eat a lot of dairy or I pay the price. So I searched the internet and found a few recipes and made a few tweeks and came up with a super yummy brownie bite recipe. These brownie bites feature 4 simple ingredients and are quick and easy to prepare. I will say that if you are used to eating the “real deal” brownie bites, this is not going to taste the same. Depending on the protein powder you use it will change the taste and texture. One of my daughters ate 3 of them, the other did not like them at all. I really enjoyed them, but I don’t usually eat a lot of super sweet foods. My hubby plans to top them with a bit of peanut butter or real whipped cream! So next time you have a party or an event and need to bring a dessert give these brownies a try. Or just make a batch when you have a major chocolate craving!
