We recently bought some chocolate casein and I wanted to use it for my black bean brownies. It was perfect! Made them extra fudgy this time. These are the perfect night time snack because casein is a slow digesting protein-it’s amino acids (building blocks of protein) are available for absorption over a longer period of time versus other protein sources, so your muscles are fed all night. (This just gives you a legit excuse to eat a brownie before bed. You’re welcome!)
