Let’s do a side-by-side of the Wicked Mint Brownie vs the standard homemade black bean brownie. First of all, I love the green mint chips of the Wicked Mint Brownie. I was looking all over for these for St. Patrick’s Day to no avail.
Which one is prettier? Protein Bakery.
Which one tastes more like a brownie? Protein Bakery. It’s delicious. The black bean brownie is kind of bitter but still good.
Which one has a texture more like a brownie? Protein Bakery–it’s like a real brownie. The black bean brownie is a little wet.
Which one is healthier? The homemade one. Wicked Mint Brownie is 300 calories with 20 g of carbs. The black bean brownie has 56.5 calories.
What about the protein? The protein in Wicked Mint Brownie comes from whey while the black bean brownie’s comes from black beans. I prefer the beans.
Verdict: I’d save the Wicked Mint brownie for an occasional brownie fix when you really want a brownie. They are delicious and could potentially be addictive. The homemade brownies are snacks you can eat on a regular basis, and it would be perfectly OK to eat more than one.
