There are so many different ways to eat these days...pure Paleo, almost, and sometimes, Mediterranean, Raw Foods, I have family members trying to eat 80% Paleo. I'm trying to avoid labelling what I'm doing... eating just ingredients, minimal processed food, and keeping meals simple. But there is a part of me that balks a little at going all the way with this. Like I had McDonald's last week with Grandson including an ice cream cone. I lack the ability to adopt a particular diet and eat only that 24/7. I'm not sure why that is. And no one has to tell me I probably undid 4 days of 'clean' eating with that one Big Mac meal.
But in my own kitchen, I'm pretty consistent with what I cook.
Here is a combination I cook quite often...potatoes and tomatoes with a little onion fried in avocado oil served up with a little balsalmic vinegar. Simple but tasty.
I know some Paleo purists would not eat potatoes but to fuel my mostly Irish makeup, I have to have my potatoes.
Anyway, back to the Brownies in the title...I came across this link from Julie at Knitted Bliss for 4 ingredient Brownies, which satisfy any number of diets. Brownies are Hubby's favourites so I gave them a try this week.
They were good, definitely chocolatety and the banana did not completely overwhelm the cocoa. I would recommend them. Also very moist.
Hubby had his with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and strawberries.
By the way, Julie posts her Link Love and Favourite Pins every Friday and they are always a varied and wonderful collection of things she has found around the net. Definitely worth checking!
I just came back in from breaking up the ice around the bird feeder and scraping ice off the feeder holes. A very gray and dangerous underfoot Good Friday.
Hope you are not having to tread so cautiously where ever you are today!
