2 bite brownies
I recently found this blog that I am digging of a mom who is raising her toddler as a vegan. I like some of the recipes and ideas and tried her 2 bite brownies for dessert when my family came over.
Ok, I'm horrible at sharing vegan recipes because I just start adding things in if I don't think it is sticking together correctly. I probably added a little bit of extra milk and coconut oil. They turned out great! They are not sweet. You might want to add more sugar.
My dad did not think it was sweet enough - it really wasn't that sweet. Maybe add some agave next time. My mom, sister and Bill thought they were decent

So far, hanging in there for this week. Had a good swim on Monday and skipped the hills today because Nick is sick and I could not get out of bed (he was coughing a few times in the night and I went to bed late) but did hit the treadmill for 8 miles. Hopefully I can keep it up for the week - I can't believe Nick is sick now. We are getting hit HARD this winter. How are you doing with your weekly goals?
