Avocado Walnut Protein Brownies

Hey there!

I might be double posting today to catch up on some yummy recipes I’d like to share with ya’ll! 🙂 The first is the irresistible Healthy Avocado Protein Brownies recipe I’ve been dying to try from Winnie especially after Serena baked them too! I attempted my own version of it last week and added in some walnuts because we love nuts! Here’s the recipe a little bit tailored to my fancy but following Winnie’s recipe pretty closely. Thanks again for sharing Winnie! This is definitely going to be our go to now when we are craving brownies!!
