Since my birthday, I have been a bit (a lot) obsessed with chocolate and finding a dessert that I like that can be as easy and as “go-to” as my favorite brownies.
Shortly after my birthday, I made a carrot cake, banana cream pie, and these cookie things. They were all awesome. But my complaints were as follows:
Carrot cake was awesome, but it did take quite a while to make, plus I over- whipped the eggs so my cake sank. It turned into carrot mush. But it was yummy.
The cookies were great. I made 2 batches with different flours ( sorghum for one and almond for the other) the almond one was the best, but I reacted as did the baby. Sad.
The banana cream pie was great (with coconut cream and dates as the “cream”).While all were good, none of them hit the spot (ya know- that brownie shaped hole). I started researching desserts, and found a recipe I wanted to try: brown butter salted blondies – this was the name, but after my adaptions, its more like maple-coconut salted blondies. But I found it. They were amaaaaazing.
On Friday, I turned the magical number of 31. And, as it turns out, I also got to go grocery shopping for the week! Because it was my birthday, I thought I’d treat myself and buy my FAVORITE brownie mix. It has one no-no in it, but its the one that is the lowest on my list of allergies. (Potato flour)
