As an Athlete and Coach I Just LOVE combining nutrition with treats!
This snack is perfect to carry around with you in your purse, car and or work-out bag. Use it to refuel as it's a perfect mixture of both carbs for glycogen restore as it is for protein after a tough work-out. Not too big where it replaces a meal but enough to hold your over and fuel your body! Many of you know that I love making these sorts of tasty treats for my husband who loves to both run and do lots of muscle work! Not only is this a perfect balance of protein, carbs but it's all loaded with fiber great for keeping full and aiding in healthy digestion. The flaxseed adds in a great omega 3 punch to help keep you alert and fresh in your day!

I've used Garden of Life's Chocolate Cocoa Raw protein to make this brownie that I know you will definitely enjoy! If it taste's too good and pure to eat alone, then surely add a scoop of low fat ice-cream and a drizzle of chocolate to sweeten the already tasty treat!
