Tasty Tuesday

My poor deprived children have been begging for cookies and yummy treats.
The poor neglected things. No sugar means very few treats.
So, I broke out the cookbooks, the Agave Nectar and the little race car apron. With a shirtless but apron clad young boy we made the best Free Eating Brownies. So good that a certain mother who forgot to put one in a snack bag for school was spoken to by no less than three people because it was very upsetting! It even came up in the IPP! So good that I'm going to share the recipe with you!


1/4 cup gluten free flour mix
1 TBSP flax seed meal
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp xanthan gum
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup honey (I use Agave Nectar)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 TBSP water

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 9 in round or square pan.
In a medium size bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Stir briefly. Add the remaining ingredients and stir well. Batter will be the consistency of molasses. Spread in the prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 min, until a toothpick inserted in the middle tests cleanly and the top begins to appear dry.

Do you ever struggle getting your kiddos or even your husband to eat veggies? Although mine love veggies...meat first, veggies second....it's nice to spice it up a bit for them. Most kids love a dip! Which is a challenge for our Free Eating regime.

And then I found this! The Nutty Broccoli. And sometimes I just go over the edge and only make the sauce. Imagine! Try it. It's pretty yummy. However, if you have nut issues, back away from the computer...far, far away.

Nutty Veggie Sauce
2 TBSP peanut butter or nut butter...bet pea butter would work too!
1 TBSP Braggs or soy sauce
1 TBSP orange or apple juice
Mix ingredients together in a small saucepan on medium heat. Heat until warmed through. Serve over steamed broccoli or as a side for fresh veggies.

  1. If I wasn't all tucked into bed reading this I would make the brownies right now! Will have to wait for the morning maybe!

    I am getting sick, can feel it in my bones, head and eyes! Trying to ward it off, but don't think I am bringing it to Time Out tomorrow! Maybe the brownies will help the cold! Worth a try!
