Looking for new posts?

I've been blogging over at Our Sleeping Flowers these days. Still me, and still delicious, come join me!

Sometimes we eat dinner early. Then when the munchies roll around, we nibble on things like brownies and popcorn. And maybe a glass of lemonade or apple cider, depending on the weather. It was raining/snowing/slushing all weekend so you would assume we were sipping on apple cider, but we had lemonade instead.

look at me, blogging on a monday.
i love checking things off my list.

have a lovely week.

fancy fudge coconut brownies
adapted from the little red house

3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup coconut oil, liquid
1 cup natural cane sugar
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs

6 pecan halves
crème fraîche

Preheat oven to 325° degrees.
Sift together dry ingredients.
Combine the oil with the sugar, then with the vanilla and eggs, mix into the dry ingredients until just combined.

Spoon into 6 individual tartlette pans and place one pecan half at the center of each tartlette. Bake 18-20 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Allow to cool completely, serve with a dallop of crème fraîche or vanilla bean ice cream and berries.

- in place of coconut oil, feel free to use vegetable, canola, or a sweet nut oil like almond, hazelnut, or walnut instead. Or try Sheena's browned butter version, pretty sure it's out of this world.
- you can veganize this easily by substituting the 2 eggs with 2 1/2 ener-g egg replacer eggs.
- like heat with your chocolate? try adding 1/2 tsp cinnamon. mmm..
