I admit; sometimes I have a ‘sweet-tooth’. Wanted to find somewhat of a healthy way to enjoy the sweet side of things without feeling guilty. Made my staple beet/carrot drink to last me throughout the week. Hence, I reserved the pulp of this refreshing combination drink. I reckon carrot/beet cake was on my mind as I whipped up this healthy and sweet goodness.
Decided to make a batch of brownie from same. With additional ingredients of:
Mashed ripe bananas (for natural sweetness)
Sugar (2 teaspoon)
Eggs (2 med)
Oats (1 cup)
Olive oil (1/2 cup)
Whole-wheat flour (1/2 teaspoon)
Baking soda (1/2 teaspoon)
Cranberries (1/2 cup)
Powdered ginger (1/4 teaspoon)
Cinnamon (1 teaspoon)
Salt (1/4 teaspoon)
Baking pan was lined with parchment paper for easy retrieval and clean-up. After spraying with a little Pam oil, brownie batter was baked in pre-heated 375 degrees fahrenheit for about 25 minutes. After cooling, brownie was sliced in small portions.

I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food.
Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
