I know, you’re thinking one of two things or both…

Number one would be, best brownies in the world my ass, who does she think she is? Yeah ok I here you, it’s a big statement to make, but you’re just going to have to trust me on this one. You only need to look at the ingredient list below to see these things can hardly taste bad.

Number two is probably, chocolate brownies…wow….ground breaking. Yep, again I understand. It’s kind of like me posting a recipe on how to cook pasta. Everyone knows how to make a brownie right? Well apparently not. The other day I decided to partake in the internet craze of black bean brownies that everyone seemed to be raving about. The recipes vary but basically you’re using mashed black beans instead of flour, lots of cocoa powder, and instead of sugar you can use agave syrup. In the pictures the brownies looked delicious; ok some looked like cardboard but I know sometimes it’s all in the taste. I read the reviews…

“Wow, I didn’t even realise I was eating a “healthy brownie” it tasted that good!!!!”

“This recipe is now my go to whenever I need a chocolate fix without the calories, delicious! You must makes these!!!”

Ooooh, I thought, they must be good, plus I won’t have to feel bad at eating one or two of these things in one go. So, I searched for the best recipe and I chose the one where the picture of the brownies looked the most delectable and off I went. Well, please let me be the one to inform you that black bean brownies taste. like. cack. Seriously I felt so let down, anyone who tells you these things taste good are lying to you! They taste bearable at that. I can only imagine this is how a man must feel when he see’s a woman with a great rack only to discover once they take it to the bedroom she whips out a couple of chicken fillets from her bra and then the truth is revealed, it was all an illusion, false advertising. Small breasts are just as attractive as large ones so why lie? How I started to talk about breasts on a brownie post I will never know. Anyway I was so miffed I had to obviously make real brownies, the more calorific the better……..



I have an unhealthy obsession with baking, cooking and just eating in general. Actually let me rephrase that, it’s not unhealthy as a lot of the time the things I’m eating are good, quality food which is healthy as well as nutritious. Yes, yes quiet you in the back who saw me with a large packet of Haribo’s the other day! Most of the time I do eat well so if I see a dessert that tastes good but doesn’t have a ridiculous calorie content I’m in. So when I was sent this little recipe I knew I had to try it. As you may see this recipe includes oats and when I see a dessert with oats that’s all I need to know. Y’know in Jerry Maguire where Renee Zellweger says to Tom Cruise, “You had me at hello..” Well, It’s the same thing for me just…. with oats, “You had me at oats…” seriously that’s all the info I need. I start crying and everything aswell, just like in the film.

Ok so anyway, wanna know how to make these? Oh man you do, honestly you do!



Cake batter Popcorn

15 May, 2013

Yikes, so the last time I posted was May 8th, I’m crap, I know. To be honest a couple of things are happening in my life at the moment that are taking up alot more time than I anticipated, but their good things, change is always a good thing, I hope! My goal with this blog is to write three new blog posts per week, that’s the aim and it’s doable so I need to get my bum in gear and prioritise! I wanted this little space on the internet to be a place where we could all bond over food porn and other such things from the creative realm and maybe in the future talk about other life issues that we all come across at some stage in our lives. I love the sense of community blogging brings and even though I’m a newbie blogger and have only been blogging for six months I’ve already built some great friendships and hope to build many more.

So anyway I just thought I’d clear afew things up and for those of you thinking, bitch I just clicked on this post for a recipe not a philosophical outlook on whats going on with your life and what your hopes and dreams are!! Whoops yep I hear you, ok lets go!

Popcorn plus cake batter lets make this happen!





DSC00799What do you do, when you have two dodgy looking brown banna’s left in your kitchen which are on their absolute last legs. Bin em? No, now that would be wasteful! Make a banana smoothie? I mean I could but banana smoothies just seem abit meh to me.
