This post is in partnership with Simple Mills.
Happy, happy Wednesday, friends! What's the hot gossip?
I know the title of this post has you all jumping for joy. Make sure to make it to the bottom of this post where I get into the deliciousness that is Simple Mills' new Brownie Almond Flour Mix!
I met a friend for breakfast at Pistacia Vera and we shared my all time favorite pan au chocolate (ask for it warmed!) and the mushroom quiche plus plenty of coffee.
When I started my intuitive eating journey, eating out regularly was one of my favorite ways to get out of my comfort zone AND spend time with girlfriends (which is clinically proven to improve your health and make you feel fabulous). And it still is!
I whipped up a batch of my Easy Vegan Black Bean Burgers because I didn't like having nothing prepped for lunch last week. I forgot how wickedly simple they are to make! I upped the spices a bit and updated the recipe to reflect that.
I was craving crunchy but also had some leftover spuds, so I had some potato chips and sweet taters with plenty of avocado, ketchup, dijon, and regular mustard on the side. I LOVE condiments.
I had spinach and shitakes from my CSA to use up so I sautéed them in olive oil and enjoyed some on the side with a few strawberries.
For dinner I whipped up my Shrimp Vegetable Curry with Herbed Cauliflower Rice using Trader Joe's wild shrimp with a splash of lime juice. We had naan and salad with balsamic vin on the side.
I've been really into butter lettuce for salads lately because it's soft but still holds up well without going limp in a flash.
And now for the fun announcement...Simple Mills just released an EPIC new eight-ingredient Brownie Almond Flour Mix that legit tastes like your favorite boxed brownies from childhood.
If you've been reading the blog for a while, you've seen me use Simple Mills awesome products in my recipes before like this insane Pumpkin Cheezecake Dip, Taco Pizza Muffin Cups, Pink Cookie Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl, Vegan Pumpkin Bars, Cinnamon Apple Pecan Brie Bites, and more.
I made these brownies on Sunday using butter (you can also use oil), water, and two pasture-raised eggs. I was FLOORED with how perfectly chewy and scrumptious they were, with plenty of rich cocoa and beautifully studded with chocolate chips.
Unlike most brownie mixes where the first ingredient is sugar, with these fudgy brownies it's actually almond flour!
I’m all about enjoying my sweets for what they are (you guys see bedtime treats in almost every What I Ate Wednesday post); but I appreciate that these brownies are sweetened with unrefined coconut sugar and have 25% less sugar than leading natural brownie brands without sacrificing flavor.
The good news is that the mix is coming soon to Amazon and you can check out the rest of Simple Mills products on Amazon here!
Tell me---are you a fan of baking mixes? Hope your week is as sweet and lovely as these brownies!
