This post is sponsored by Bob’s Red Mills and Sweat Pink Ambassadorship. Although I did receive these products free of charge, the opinions are my own. These protein buckeyes are a sweet treat, packed with protein. Coated with dark chocolate and a peanut buttery center these are the perfect dessert in disguise.
We all have a health or fitness journey to tell. Mine started my Junior year of college. I spent the first two years of college being the typical college freshmen. I would go to the cafeteria and get pizza, cookies, cake, waffles downed in syrup and ice cream cones daily. I didn’t gain the freshmen 15, but the year I quit soccer and started lifting weights and running on my own for health I started to realize how unhealthy I was in the past.
As time with on, I discovered IIFYM. I never looked at food in three categories, and I never paid attention to how much carbohydrates, protein or fat I was taking in. I never knew that following a workout protein was such an important part of refueling your body and helping to repair your muscles. It wasn’t until I began to lose muscle that I started to take notice.
As essential it is for protein post workout, it is not always convenient. And that is where protein powder comes in. Today there are so many options to choose from. There is whey protein, pea protein, egg white protein, vegan protein, casein protein and I am willing to bet I didn’t even come close to naming them all.
You are bound to find a flavor and consistency that you like with some trial and error. However I have never been the type of person to really enjoy drinking protein shakes. I like to make smoothies, bake with them or experiment in other ways.
When I received Bob’s Red Mill protein powders in the mail last week I knew that experimenting with them is exactly what I wanted to do. And that is where my protein brownie recipe came from. Just four ingredients, no baking involved these protein buckeyes are the perfect sweet high protein treat.
Bob’s Red Mill protein currently comes in four flavors vanilla, chocolate, chai and original. They are plant based, vegan, gluten free, made with clean ingredients and contain probiotics and amino acids.
