Introduction

Inspired by Jamie Eason's chocolate protein bars recipe from bodybuilding.com.

I amped up the chocolatey density in this recipe, and used zucchini for an extra moist cake consistency!

  • Yum! This was very good. Thanks for making the changes. The only change I made was not adding any melted chocolate. Instead I added about 1/3 a cup of dark chocolate chips to the batter. I used a white chocolate whey protein, because it was what I had, it worked well. - 11/1/11
