Sticky Vegan Brownies

  • 1/2c Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/2c Brown Sugar
  • 2tbs Cocoa Powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1/4tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2c Chocolate Chips
  • Half of an Avocado
  • 1tsp Vanilla
  • 1/4c Almond (or soy) Milk
  • Handful of Almonds (optional)

Add all dry ingredients into a bowl, minus chocolate chips. Add all wet ingredients in separate bowl and mash together. Add wet to the dry and stir until creamy then add in the chocolate chips and stir until combined. Pour into a greased 8×8 pan and top with nuts, more chocolate or whatever you like! Bake at 250 for 20-25 minutes or until edges are hard. Let cool for 30 minutes and enjoy!

It is really hot in my house so after cutting my brownie up into squares I put them in a plastic freezer bag and kept them in there… not for very long as they were eaten up pretty fast!

Breakfast in this edition of Meal Of The Day! This dish is packed full of flavour and so easy to whip up.

Fried Egg Open Face Sandwich

I had a bit of leftover mixed green salad in the fridge so I fried that with a tomato slice and an egg. Made toast and piled on a piece of cheese, salad, fried tomato, fried egg and dashed on some salt and pepper! That’s it, that’s all.

Reality & Perception

I recently came across and article that completely fit my current life situation. I felt like the universe was sending me a signal that I wasn’t even full aware that I needed.
