So, alongside the DELICIOUS Peanut Butter Muscle Brownie I was sent from Lenny & Larry’s, they also gave me the Cookies & Cream Muscle Brownie.
Same awesomeness in my opinion, with it’s all natural ingredients, and 20 grams of protein for an 80 gram brownie. Protein + brownies= YES! : )
WHAT am I waiting for? Let’s give this a try NOW!!
I opened up the package, and saw a dark brown colored brownie, with almost a white icing on top. It was kind of small, but thick and dense. It smelled very sweet, and had a vanilla aroma as well.
So, how did it taste? I only have one word to describe it.
As in, HOW is there protein in this deliciousness!?!? The brownie itself was soft and chewy, very slightly gritty, fudgy and sweet. The icing on top really wasn’t as sweet as I thought it would be, but was pretty good. There were also little bits in the cookie, which I thought were walnuts, but they were actually soft and sweet. So, I’m assuming they are not walnuts. I believe they were either “cookie bits” or “marshmallow flavored pieces” according to the ingredients.
Overall, Cookies & Cream Muscle Brownies ROCK! As if I needed another excuse to eat a brownie, this one has lots of filling protein, and great flavor, as well as natural ingredients. One thing I didn’t really like was the fact that it was a bit high in sugar (11 grams for half an 80 gram brownie), and there was corn syrup listed in the ingredients (s0mething I try to stay away from). Also, there were TWO servings in the 80 gram brownie, which it took almost all of my willpower to only eat half at a time (it’s so good!). Although, now that I think about it, a good-sized dessert brownie can be around 300 calories, give or take, with most of the calories I’m assuming coming from fat or sugar/carbohydrates. At least if someone I eat the whole brownie, it’s 340 calories, and 20 grams of PROTEIN!! : )
So… 4 1/2 stars : )
1.41 Oz (40 grams) is 170 calories, 5 grams of fat, 20 grams of carbohydrates, 11 grams of sugar, 1 gram of fiber and 10 grams of protein.
