If you’re from a higher altitude you know how FRUSTRATING baking paleo desserts can be. I have cried from many dessert disasters.. You smell it and CRAVE it but then when you take it out of the oven it’s raw in the middle and refuses to cook, no matter how much longer you try and leave it in. I gave up – I was so done trying.. Until now. It seems like flour is the obvious struggle with paleo baking at higher altitudes – So why not attempt a high altitude brownie WITHOUT flour?!
Well I did.. And it is INCREDIBLE. And I’m sure it’s good at ANY altitude. I don’t mean to brag… But these are the most delicious brownies I’ve ever had.. And COMPLETELY healthy/paleo!! Next time I’m going to add some nuts – But MAN these are AMAZING.
It is very minimal in it’s ingredients but the flavor does NOT reflect this. It’s easy, quick and I’m sure with a side of paleo ice cream would be even MORE dangerous. But it’s paleo so no harm, no foul! Even the kids enjoyed it! Snuck a little piece inside my step-daughter’s lunch today – She’s gonna love it!
As you can see they came out PERFECT. No gooey, uncooked center.. No disappointing flavor.. Just incredibly healthy, chocolatey goodness!! Peek at the recipe below and try it for yourself! You’ll NEVER go back! ❥
We have wanted to raise chickens for years and this year we’re FINALLY doing it! It’s so exciting.. We got our brooder box set up and got 4 sweet little chicks! Not only are they ADORABLE and the kids LOVE having their own chickens (Their names are Heihei, Baba, Kickin’ Wing and Daffodil) I know, right?! haha But they’re also an investment! We go through nearly 2 dozen eggs a week and these babies will one day be giving us TONS of beautiful eggers!
Not a real blog post.. Just wanted to share and maybe encourage more folks to do their research and look into getting their own chicks! We’re getting solar panels, growing our own vegetable garden and now have our own chickities.. We could be fully off the grid if needed! Just incase a zombie apocalypse happens.. Just sayin’.
I’m back at it. Fall time (Honestly, anytime.) makes it hard to want to stay motivated with health but once you don’t feel like yourself anymore, health or appearance wise, then you make the changes you need and want.
Back to full on paleo because I’ve been sick for a full week. Why? My immune system is weak – I haven’t been eating well and have been drinking a lot of whiskey and warm ciders (So good though..).
But now I know what I need to do. I need to think about my health more – Mainly so I can have my energy and strength back for my son and be the Mother I need to be. For Hudson and for myself. So, this week’s Mantra is – Believe in Yourself!
