These brownies are gluten free, high in protein and include a vegan option. They are packed with fiber and are a guilt-free way to indulge in ‘cakey-chocolate.’

I didn’t make this recipe overly sweet because I find with the cookie dough hummus frosting it is perfectly sweet enough. If you prefer a sweeter brownie feel free to add more agave, honey or stevia.
