Paleo and Keto Approved Buckeye Protein Brownies
Have you ever heard of a Buckeye Brownie? Traditionally, its a decadent chocolate brownie, topped with peanut butter and chocolate. It reminds us a little bit of a gourmet version of a Resee's peanut butter cup. For our most recent recipe, we made a completely paleo and keto approved version of this underappreciated delicacy! Hope you enjoy.
