This is Comfort

IMG_1253
Let’s be honest…this doesn’t look like much. In reality, it isn’t-but the act of making it, as usual, is so good.

Also, what is it about sweet carby things and hot black coffee together? It just makes sense and the synergy of the two can’t be ignored. I’m grateful I’ve figured out how to make this happen in my lifestyle sans flour.

Lately my baking is summed up in a few actions-put some nutrient dense things in a bowl, add some fun things like protein powders & health fortifying oils-whiz until smooth with my favorite tool, the immersion blender. Then mix in some nuts/seeds/chocolatey and textural things that suit my mood. Bake until golden and seemingly palatable. Then revel in how surprisingly tasty it is.

This golden batch of breakfast bars (for lack of a better name) came about from a plantain, 2 eggs, a scoop or two of protein powder, perhaps a sprinkle of coconut flour, a few tablespoons coconut sugar, vanilla-always, sea salt, and then stirred in some chopped up leftover coconut oil/cacao ganache hardened in the fridge. Then poured into a parchment lined pan, baked at 350 until dense and crackled on top.

I should write these things down, but that would take the spirit out of it.

Go play! Blend and have faith.
