Baby kicks and baking.

Picnik collage

This morning i woke up refreshed and rejuvenated! hello 8 hours of sleep!

I was happy and baby boy was happy

and by the way, baby boy is deff a morning person.

No need for an alarm clock people! Just get knocked-up!!

you’ll either wake up having to go pee like a race horse around 5:30 every stinkin’ morning or wake up to your insides being lovingly punched and rearranged.

Early mornings seem to be the time when he decides to practice his break-dancing ninja moves. t

This song also gets him kickin’ pretty hard fyi!

I prefere the punches and organ rearrangement over the racing to the bathroom part.

and if baby boy thinks my small intestines need to be else where, well hot dang! then it’s about time they got a little rearranging!

Anyway, i woke up this morning with the urge to bake something, but i wanted to try something new and different and possibly healthy and of course sinfully delicious

So i looked through my plethora of cooking blogs that i seem to ignore and became reacquainted with this one

now honestly i’ve never tried anything on her blog before and i knew today had to be the day to change that.

Recipe and nutritional info found here!

Fudge Daddies

(Makes 8 brownies)

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup ww pastry flour (or white, or you can try spelt or gluten-free)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup sweetener (see link, below, for lower-sugar version)
  • 1.5 oz  soft tofu or mori-nu firm or lite firm (about 1/8 box)
  • 1/3 cup applesauce (use only 1/4 cup if using 3T oil)
  • 1 to 3 T oil (I use coconut oil. Canola is ok too.)
  • 2 T non-dairy milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • optional: you can throw in some chocolate chips

Combine dry ingredients, and mix very well. In a blender, combine wet ingredients and blend until smooth. (I use a Magic Bullet cup.) Pour wet over dry and stir, then pour into a 4×6 oiled pan (or double the recipe and use an 8×8). Cook for 12-18 minutes at 325 F. I’m not sure why this is the case, but these brownies seem to taste ten times sweeter if you don’t eat them for at least an hour after they come out of the oven!

Her fudgey variation: (Highly recommended!) If you want them extremely fudgey– as in “so gooey you need a fork to eat them”—cook the batter for only 8-10 minutes. Then put the pan in the fridge to cool for at least a few hours.
