Chocolate Peanut Butter Lava Brownie

Low carb & sooooo yummy. I have one of these almost every night! Great if you have a sweet tooth! Makes 1 serving.

  • 1 scoop of Whey Gourmet Peanut Butter Chocolate protein powder
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp natural peanut butter

In a small microwave safe bowl, mix together protein powder and cocoa powder. Add in ¼ cup water and stir until blended. Should be pudding-like. Microwave for 30 seconds, or until the outside is a brownie type consistency, and the centre is still a gooey, pudding like centre. You'll see it puff up in the microwave, but don't overcook it or it will be DRY!! Then top with peanut butter. Enjoy!
