Here we are, Week 5 of Sally Russick’s Focus on Life photo challenge. This week’s prompt is “Capture our hearts”. I am a big fan of heart motifs, sentimental as I am. I thought I’d easily find a heart to capture – maybe in a pattern or the kid’s artwork. Instead, I ended up making a heart!
Recently my friend Jeanette shared a link with me for a brownie recipe. Jeanette is a great inspiration for healthy eating, so these were no ordinary brownies. The recipe called for all natural ingredients – and is vegan and gluten free. Now as you may know, my oldest son loves to bake so he was really intrigued to make these brownies on his day off from school the other day. He mixed quinoa, dates and coconut butter in the blender. In to the oven it went and he was ready to frost it with a glaze when it came out. Corinne Goff’s Mocha Quinoa Brownies
Yes, I cut them in to hearts because they are healthier-for-you brownies. Oh, I wanted to note that I omitted the coffee extract, doubled the recipe, and used a 9×9″ pan. The boys each wanted seconds….and when it came to the last one, I had to split it 4 ways between them!
