What is better than a brownie? A dark chocolate brownie!
Dallas has been playing a game called Bakery Story on my Kindle and has been all over me about setting up a home bakery. He gets in these moods where he creates menus and wants to sell food to all our neighbors. Food which I am supposed to buy and cook. Needless to say, these games don’t make it much further than the menu writing phase.
This past week, Dallas has had a baking bee in his bonnet, asking me every day to make him banana bread. Being Sunday, I thought I’d pop a loaf into the oven before church and do something nice for my family. After an hour of baking, my sweet loaf tasted great, but a little plain. Oops, I kind of forgot to put the bananas in. I basically made sugary bread.
To make it up to him, I made an oeey-gooey batch of dark chocolate brownies, which happen to by Jy’s favorite as well. I did though, have an alterior motive, I wanted to bake something I could blog about. A win-win-win.
You can find dark chocolate cocoa powder at most grocery stores, but this recipe will work with any type of cocoa.
It’s that time again…
Can you guess what’s in the glass? Surprise! It’s not coffee. It’s a fall mix of flavors with pumpkin, greek yogurt, banana, powdered peanut butter, a smidge of maple syrup and a dash of cinnamon. It’s a quick way to stock up on calories in the morning if you are in a rush. My kids weren’t bananas about it, but I was! Sometimes you just need something to carry you for a couple hours.
It’s after 7 p.m. on a Sunday night, which means it’s lunch packing time. So glad to be able to blog tonight and am looking forward to figuring out how to work blogging back into my schedule, with the goal of writing on a daily basis. It will take me a while, but I’ll get there!
Happy Fall Friends!
