So here’s my Friday. Actually, here is my everyday.
Wake up; want something sweet & delicious to eat…. so I have a shake, or maybe egg whites.
Lunchtime; want something sweet & delicious to eat….so I have a salad.
Snacktime: want something sweet & delicious to eat…. so I have some almonds.
Dinnertime: want something meaty & delicious to eat.... so I have some turkey/chicken, sweet potatoes and veggies.
Random points throughout the day: want something sweet & delicious to eat…. so I BAKE!
To quote my friend Erin;
“Alli, you spend more time in the Kitchen than anyone I know. You have literally baked everyday this week.”
….. and today is no different!.
Here are my gluten-free brownies.
Be aware that they still contain brown sugar. They fit into a gluten-free lifestyle, but not necessarily all healthy living lifestyles. They are still a TREAT!
1 bar 60-70% cocoa dark chocolate
1/2 cup organic coconut oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup quinoa flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp vanilla
1 serving of applesauce
1 cup mixed nuts (walnuts, pecans etc.)
Handful dark chocolate chips
Full serving of veggies in the brand!
Preheat oven to 350.
Melt chocolate and coconut oil in a saucepan. Gently stir.
Whisk together brown sugar, quinoa flour, salt and baking soda. Add in mixture of beaten eggs, vanilla and melted chocolate/coconut oil. Whisk or beat until smooth and creamy.
Add in nuts, and spread in a nonstick pan.
Add some dark chocolate chips on top.
Bake for ~30minutes.
