Review: Lenny & Larry's Fit Brownies!
Posted by Living, Learning, Eating at 6:00 AM
Lenny & Larry's make ridiculously delicious, protein-packed treats - all sorts of yummy cookies and brownies! I love their brownies, but even though they come with a good deal of protein the 400+ calories in each treat can be a bit much for a regular dessert for some people.
Especially when topped with ice cream (aka: the only right way to eat a brownie).
That's why they've introduced the new Fit Brownies line!
There are three tempting flavors.
There's Chocolate Raspberry.
There's Chocolate Decadence.
There's also Peanut Butter Crunch, which (of course) is a favorite.
Fit Brownies offer the same chocolaty indulgence of the original brownies, but at just under 200 (190, to be exact) calories each and with substantially less sugar and a smaller size.
They're also gluten-free, for anyone with Celiac's Disease!
As noted above, they come in three varieties. The are not just carbon copies of the originals. The Chocolate Raspberry Fit Protein Brownie, for example, is a new flavor.
These are the perfect size for a not-too-indulgent dessert that you can enjoy daily. They are less sweet, and somewhat less rich, than the original brownies, so those can certainly still have their place as a sometimes treat.
The texture is really fudgy, not cakey, which I liked.
Cakey brownies are a total ripoff, it defeats the point of a brownie if the chocolate doesn't stick to your teeth!
I was really pleasantly surprised by the Chocolate Raspberry brownie, as I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did.
I'm not wild about the chocolate-fruit combo usually, but it really worked here!
The raspberry icing on top was a nice touch.
Do you prefer cakey or fudgy brownies?
What's your go-to dessert at the moment?
How often do you have dessert? Three times a day, duh.
