Happy Mother’s Day!

Filed under: Uncategorized — crazyrunnerchick @ 10:25 pm

I love my mommy :).  She’s like my best friend.  She’s always there when i need to talk, and she always cracks me up because she so absent-minded sometimes but at the same time, she’s got everything together.  She’s sacrificed so much to put me in a private school, and I’m so glad that she’s my mommy

When i asked my mom what she wanted for mother’s day, she simply said brownies, and i was like, “can do!”

In Self Magazine i found a brownie recipe that was “accidentally vegan”.  It was super cool so i tried it out.  It turned out really well!  I was so happy.

Vegan Killer brownies:

SOOOO GOOD!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
— 2 Cups of Whole Wheat white flour
— 1 Cup of cocoa powder
— 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of baking powder
— Dash of salt
— 1 and 1/2 cups of agave nectar
— 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
— 1 Cup of chocolate almond milk
— 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
— 1 cup of non-dairy chocolate chips
 
Steps:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and grease a brownie pan.
2. Mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
3. Mix together the agave nectar, oil, vanilla extract, and almond milk.
4. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry and mix thoroughly.
5. Pour half of the mixture into the brownie pan, top with half of the chocolate chips, pour in the remaining mixture, and top with the remaining chocolate chips.
6. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out dry.
7. Enjoy.  Serves 12-16.
Those brownies were sooo decadent 🙂
 
Speaking of decadence… lol just kidding it has nothing to do with decadence but rather, running.  My school started a little running group and i just started running with them.  Super fun :).  It’s so much better to run with a group cuz you can chat a little and joke around, and its just all around more fun.
 
Do you run?  If you do, do you do it in a group?
 
Also, Sorry i didn’t post anything in like the last week.  The play practices were going until 9 pm on most nights, and i just couldn’t get on the computer.  But the play’s over with and i can relax :).  Also, i got two gifts from two secret admirers 😉 i was quite shocked.  i usually only get flowers from family members during the play.  Hehe, i’ll have fun trying to figure out who they are.
