Still on the subject of overhauling, I am slowly chipping away at my pantry and cleaning out everything that I won’t be using going forward with my overhaul. And I just can’t throw things away or waste food, so it’s a slow process. Today I decided to make some brownies using the Orgran Chocolate Brownie Mix that I have had in there for a while.
This mix is soy free, gluten-free, wheat free, dairy free, egg free, yeast free and vegan – OMG what is actually in it??? AIR??? – and it is possible to make the brownies with or without fresh eggs added to the mix.
I used butter and a splash of milk (as dairy and egg aren’t problems for me) and just to pimp them up a bit, added some roughly chopped almonds. Fifteen minutes in the oven (so they are still fudgy, mmmm) and voila, really tasty brownies.
Currently, there’s a lovely smell through the apartment too, fudgy chocolate. I would definitely recommend these ones as a pantry essential – in particular for those with more than just gluten-free needs.
As nice as they are, I am very much looking forward to finishing the detoxing of my pantry and starting to do more cooking and baking from scratch.
Finally, here’s some of today’s Nic Humour (bizarre at the best of times). In a text to a friend “I have brownies in the oven (and scouts in the microwave mwhahahahaha)” – oh dear, I need to get out of the house I think. Have a great Easter.
