Chocolate Frosted Protein Brownies

Frosting! Sweet, smooth, finger-licking good chocolate frosting. I've had brownies before. Haven't we all? But sometimes a basic chocolate brownie doesn't cut it. You know what I mean, right? Sometimes you just need to add something....something even more chocolatey, even more sweet, just more! Frosting. I dare you to give it a try :)

Nicolette’s Tips

* To make brownies lower in fat, omit the almond meal flour and substitute it with 1/3 cup oat flour.
