Well, we thought you’d say that, so we’re gifting you with a recipe that you can make the day before Labor Day, so all you have to do on your free day is enjoy (and share some cake with others, of course).

- 1 Quest Chocolate Hazelnut Protein Bar

- 1 pint vanilla low-cal ice cream (your choice of brand)

- Place the unwrapped Chocolate Hazelnut bar on the baking sheet and bake for 4-5 minutes. Remove and let cool completely.
- Once cooled, break the bar into pieces and place them into a nutribullet or blender along with the oats and blend until fine crumbles form.
- Transfer the mix to a mixing bowl and add in the sweetener, cocoa powder, protein and salt and mix until combined.
- Add in the melted butter and egg and stir until a dough forms.
- Transfer the dough to the prepared pan and bake for 8-9 minutes.
- Remove and let cool completely.
- Once cooled, removed the brownie and parchment paper from the pan.
- Line the pan with the plastic wrap and place the brownie back into the bottom.
- Cover the brownie with ice cream in a smooth layer and place in the freezer for 2 hours.
- Top with berries and dig in!
- *If frozen solid, let the cake sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before serving.
