Last week we enjoyed a recipe inspired by the amazing Heather.
Heather has some really great recipes, but the one recipe that really inspired us was her scookies. The name just got us too, love it.
We did make some changes to Heather’s original recipe.
- we used a blend of mix nuts for our flour (cashews, almonds, and hazelnuts).
- added dried cranberries instead of chocolate squares
- added in some orange zest (we just love orange and cranberries together)
Also our nut flour was not perfectly grind into fine flour. But we ended up liking the texture that our ‘not so fine’ nut flours provided our scookies. We enjoyed how there was no sugar added to the recipe. Heather is a big fan of healthy fats and low sugar, just like us.
Between the nuts and coconut it had plenty of flavor. The addition of cranberries was nice too!
These scookies were sooooo good. Scrumptious and flavorful! Thanks again Heather for the brilliant idea and recipe.
Yesterday we were productive during the day and worked hard on our bakery’s new labels for our products. We will share a sneak peak here soon. Plus we got to hang out with our older sister, which was really nice too!
In the midst of doing work we did whip up a batch of our chewy brownies. last night.
And enjoying them this morning. it is never to early for brownies
we doubled the recipe and baked it in a 10 inch circle pan (the pan we typically bake our socca in) and they turned out great. we love our rich chewy brownies.
we are off to attempt to get some work done today, though, all we can really think about is our dear friend and what she is going through and what she is about to experience. we are so at lost for words, why is it so hard sometimes to think of the right things to say in situations like this? we did have a long night, our friend got stuck in the charlotte airport on her way down to see her husband and we picked her up. stayed up with her most of the night and dropped her off at airport this morning. praying that she finally makes it to see her husband today. we feel so bad for her, she has been through so much in just trying to get home.
Twins question: Do you ever eat brownies for breakfast? Would you rather have brownies, cake, cookies, or pancakes for breakfast? Or all of them? We would enjoy them all!
now that we have brownies on your mind go make yourself something nice today…chocolate cures everything, right?
till next time,
