I’ve had a couple of new projects I’ve been working on and one, in particular, that has been pretty full on, for good reason, the last few weeks. I’ve also been thinking about the future again and continuing to support my small (and not so small) people through life’s challenges. It’s all good but I’ve not been doing so well at really filling my own cup so I’ve got the resources to keep on giving out. I know I need to change that but the inbuilt guilt is a struggle so I was pretty relieved to read this article
and realise I’m not going crazy and I’m not alone, think my husband was relieved to find that I wasn’t really going to run away with the circus either.
This weekend was pretty busy but we managed to get everyone together at the table for dinner on Sunday. So these brownies were for pudding and were declared yummy by the members of the taste team who weren’t too full or too keen on having a lolly.
They’re a different recipe for avocado brownies than we used before and slightly less healthy but more gooey and chocolatey.
They’re made with maple syrup and brown sugar. Realised at the last minute that I had run out of cocoa powder but the hot-chocolate powder and syrup seemed to work ok as a substitute.
The real decadence was in adding the chocolate chips at the end. The looked a little overdone when they came out of the oven but were pretty perfect once they had cooled down.
