I had confessed in this post that sometimes I just really want to choose the brownie…instead of the fruit or veggie. (I’m talking really, really want to choose the brownie…)
So then Marie suggested, “Hey, make your brownies with applesauce, then you’ll get fruit and a brownie!”
And I said, “Yeah, but then I’d have to eat the whole pan of brownies in order to get a full serving in.” (which, I could do…)
And then it was suggested to throw in a couple of strawberries with the brownie too… ‘Cause, you know…strawberries and chocolate together…that’s always yummy…
(I LOVED all of your comments on this post…can you tell?! I was cracking up all day.) (Um, while I chewed on my carrot sticks, of course…)
So, here it is folks…inspired by you…the Very Berry Brownie Cup.
Very Berry Brownie Cups
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup rapadura (dehydrated cane sugar juice)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 t. vanilla
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
fresh blueberries and strawberries
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
3-4 drop stevia
1/4 t. vanilla
Stir together the applesauce, rapadura and cocoa powder. Add egg and vanilla. Mix in the flour. Pour batter into 10 paper lined muffin cups. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.
Whip the cream with beaters until soft peaks form. Add the stevia and vanilla and whip again just to mix.
Serve brownie cups piled with strawberries and blueberries, and topped with whipped cream.
I’ve just gotta say, that eating chocolate truly is a great way to make your home a haven…don’t you think? ‘Cause chocolate makes Mama happy…and a happy mama makes for a happy haven.
Oh, and of course, that means I’m eating fruit too…which is of course is the real point of this post…
