It’s been miserably wet and cold. I was going to go shopping but I wasn’t prepared to brave the pouring rain so I reluctantly resigned to baking. For a change, I was going to bake something new, something obscenely healthy, something to justify being stuck at home, something with a good chance of messing up and tasting like grit. What else was I going to do yeah?
And I did. I made a batch of insanely healthy brownies. Gluten-free, egg-free, nut-free, grain-free, vegan and all that jazz. You wouldn’t be able to guess what else went into them either! Avocado, banana, hemp seeds, and spinach *gasps*
My first thought when I pulled the baking tray out of the oven was, “Uhh, what’s this? A slab of dung cake?” My eyes obviously didn’t take too kindly to them. What about my other senses?
I gave them a light touch, “Hmm, surprisingly soft and spongey”.
Why not give it a sniff? *brings my nose to the baking tray and takes a big sniff* Smells chocolatey enough.
Maybe its not as bad as it looks *takes a nibble*
*And another. And another.*
My god this stuff is surprisingly good.
*Smears cake with some green stuff*
Oh my, this is actually really good. There, I said it.
*Proceeds to gobbling. Om nom nom nom.*
