Notes:

*You can substitute the chocolate egg whites for plain, however the chocolate flavor will be a bit more mild

**Make sure you are using a thick greek yogurt, such as chobani, otherwise your ‘frosting’ will be runny. If your yogurt is thinner, you can fix this by adding in some vanilla protein powder (1tbs at a time) to reach your desired frosting like consistency and increase the protein content of the brownies.
