I ran across a brownie recipe (I think maybe a FB posted it?), and I thought it looked interesting.
As a baker I was decent, cupcakes were my expertise, but brownies, ugh! I loved brownies, but they hated me... I never could get them to bake up the right way. It was really annoying.
So now I'm skeptical of brownie recipes, but given that we are desperate, and the recipe is ridiculously easy, I thought we'd try it.
1 cup Nut Butter (I wanted to use cashew butter, but I didn't have enough, so I went with Sunbutter)
1/2 Cup Honey (you could use less, I think)
1/4 Cup Coconut oil
Mix all ingredients together.
Pour into an 8x8 dish.
Bake* at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
*I sprinkled a few dark chocolate chips on top before baking.
Mine burnt a bit, so I'm not posting a photo (next time!)
Anyway, they looked like brownies... even if they were a little flat, but hey, it was a brownie! And it was soooooo yummy. Nutty, yet sweet, and a hint of chocolate.
Most of us always have the ingredients around anyway, so it's a great pick-me-up if you need it.
Happy St. Joseph's feast day too :)
