If you’ve been following the active nutrition segment of the dietary supplement and functional food industries, we don’t need to remind you that protein brownies are all the rage these days.

And similarly, those in the know are well aware of Core Nutritionals, who have graced us with two amazing collaborative efforts:

We’re excited to announce that after a great deal of effort, the Moose Tracks collaboration is next to expand. And as you guessed from the intro… it’s a high-protein brownie!

Announcing Core Nutritionals MOOSE TRACKS Protein Brownie!

Core Nutritionals Moose Tracks Brownies were revealed at the 2023 Mr. Olympia show. We had the chance to beta test the two flavors last June, and they were exquisite:

  • Moose Tracks Original Blondie
  • Moose Tracks Chocolate Brownie

A true-to-life collab, these brownies include the trademark Moose Tracks fudge swirl that everyone knows and loves, and are full of a flavor-bursting “Moose Tracks Chunk Blend” alongside peanut butter.

We’re going to dive into how Core Moose Tracks Protein Brownies work, but first, let’s check PricePlow for great Core deals, and watch our video review of the new delicacy:

Core Protein Brownie Ingredients

Each brownie contains the following ingredients:

  • Protein Blend

    • Collagen Hydrolysate

      CORE Nutritionals Moose Tracks Protein Brownies

      Skin consists of about 80% collagen, a protein that serves as a structural backbone and the extracellular matrix that holds the body together.[1] Collagen’s triple helix structure, primarily composed of glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, provides skin with flexibility and elasticity.[1,2] Found in soft tissue like joints, tendons, and skin, collagen is the most abundant animal protein, despite modern diets primarily focusing on muscle meats.[3] For instance, a deficiency in glycine, a key collagen constituent, can contribute to metabolic issues and obesity.[4]

      Recent research shows that collagen supplementation can enhance joint and connective tissue health;[5,6] it improves hair, skin, and nail texture, strength, and durability;[7,8] and benefits cardiovascular health.[9]

    • Whey Protein Concentrate and Isolate

      CORE Nutritionals Moose Tracks Protein Blondie

      Whey protein has long been a favored choice of supplemental protein thanks to its high leucine content, great bioavailability, and its ability to surpass plant-based proteins.[10] Whey is fast-acting, insulinogenic, and rich in essential amino acids.[11] Research consistently shows that whey supplementation can enhance strength and muscle gains even in nutrient-dense, high-protein diets.[12-15]

      Protein Brownies contain both whey concentrate and whey isolate. Isolate is standardized to at least 90% protein by weight, while concentrate ranges from 25% to 89% protein, with the remainder being carbs and fats from the milk source.

  • Egg

    Eggs are rich in choline, an essential nutrient required for cellular membrane formation.[16] Choline also serves as a precursor to acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter enhancing cognitive functions, including balance and coordination.[17-19]

    Eggs are also high in folate, a vital vitamin that regulates homocysteine levels.[20,21]

  • Sweeteners (Erythritol, Monk Fruit, Stevia, Brown Sugar)

    Core Moose Tracks Protein Brownie Close-Ups

    No further comment necessary

    The primary sweetener in Moose Tracks Protein Brownie is erythritol, a sugar alcohol with 60-80% the sweetness of sucrose. It is non-metabolized, doesn’t affect blood glucose or insulin levels,[22] and acts as an antioxidant.[23]

    Monk fruit extract is another key sweetener, known for its zero-calorie properties and potential health benefits. It doesn’t impact caloric intake or blood glucose levels and has anti-inflammatory and fat cell inhibition properties due to mogrosides.[24,25]

    Lastly, brown sugar is the primary source of the 8 grams of added sugars in Protein Brownies.

  • Moose Tracks Chunk Blend

    The meat of the flavor from Moose Track Chunks is composed of sugar, palm kernel oil, cocoa powder, partially defatted peanut flour, nonfat dry milk, whey powder, hydrogenated palm oil, peanuts, salt, soy lecithin, and natural vanilla extract. All told, not the dirtiest blend with a huge flavor and texture payoff.

  • The rest

    Rounding out the formula are peanut butter, almond flour, cocoa powder, potassium sorbate, vanilla extract, baking powder, salt, cocoa powder, and margarine.

All Flavors Available

This collab is initially launching in the original two flavors, but we’ll put an up-to-date list of all variations PricePlow has seen below, in hopes that there are even more on the way:

    Core throws their hat in the ring

    Functional foods are huge right now, especially brownies, and it seems like every brand is trying to get in on the action. After such a great Moose Tracks PUDD’N launch, this partnership extension makes so much sense.

    Core Nutritionals PUDD'N Moose Tracks Announcement

    Core Nutritionals offers a wide variety of supplements, including their delicious Moose Tracks PUDD’N!

    Doug Miller has often discussed how their first foray into the category, Core Balls, didn’t work out for numerous reasons. We appreciate his openness and honesty on those learning lessons, because we now know his strict policies on the matter: If he’s re-entering this space, he’s doing it 100% right.

    As proof of Doug’s commitment to quality, these brownies were ready five months ago. But he hung on to them to make sure they’d stay legitimate, intact, yet not turn to bricks.

    Core’s addition to the space is a smashing success, as far as flavor and texture go. Made with fairly clean ingredients, Moose Tracks Protein Brownies are semi-healthy options for a delicious dessert.

    After all, when you have to give in to temptation, you might as well stick with something that will still boost your protein goals for the day.
