Hope your afternoon was great. I chugged down two of these (Amazing Grass Berry SuperFood)—
And one of these (nonfat pumpkin spice latte)—-
And snacked on these—-
While I baked THESE!
These really aren’t good for you at all and I don’t even remember the last time I baked old fashioned brownies like this…. but heck, they are absolutely delicious! Perfect for tailgating, parties and picnics 🙂
Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies
1/2 cup flour
4 ounces unsweetened bakers chocolate
1.5 cups walnuts
2 cups sugar
1.5 tsp vanilla extract
2 sticks butter
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325. Melt the chocolate and butter together on low heat. Remove from heat and add the sugar, eggs and vanilla. Mix well to thoroughly combine (I use a whisk for this). Fold in the flour, salt, walnuts and chocolate chips gently. Don’t overmix. Spread batter into a prepared pan and bake for 40-45 minutes.
I’d be lying my pants off if I told you I didn’t a) lick the spoon or b) eat massive amounts of “crumbs”
Despite eating my body weight in brownie crumbs, I still enjoyed a delicious dinner over at the Created house with my bible study girls this evening. We had delicious chicken, salad and fruit that another girl from church had made and brought over for us—I was so thankful to be a part of it and share a meal and fellowship with these amazing women. It really made my entire day complete. And they LOVED the brownies!!! 🙂
Storming outside and I’m ready for my pajamas and bed! Waking up at 5:30 for the big 8 miler.….gahhh wish me luck and pray for my achy left shin! I have strict instructions for my dad to come hunt me down in the car if I don’t return within an hour and a half. Recap in the morning!
