Today I woke up to little white flakes falling from the sky! Yes, it's actually snowing today here in Dallas! My first real snow day (not counting the iceapocolypse)! I had no idea it was even on the forecast... so when I woke up, I thought the trees were shedding or something got picked up in the wind. No Katelyn, that's what real snow looks like. Ohhhhhh!
So all my original plans today have changed to drinking hot tea and watching romantic comedies by the fire. (and wearing sweats and the coziest socks ever, of course!) I'm really loving today, guys.
Speaking of love, Valentine's Day is coming up and I have a favorite recipe I want to share with you... again! I have already done a post about these in the past, but I thought I'd share them one more time because they're just that darn good. Especially when they're in the shape of a heart! I mean, even my non-paleo friends want to make them when they come over. Now what does that tell ya?
Almond Flour Brownies (paleo)
~ 2/3 cup raw organic honey
~ 1/2 cup melted coconut oil or butter
~ 1 Tbsp vanilla
~ 3 eggs
~ 1 cup almond flour
~ 1/2 cup raw cacao powder or cocoa
~ 1/4 tsp baking soda
~ 1/4 tsp sea salt (I use celtic sea salt!)
First, heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the honey, oil, vanilla and eggs together until smooth. Then add the almond flour, cacao, baking soda and salt. Stir until ingredients are well blended. Pour into a greased (I used coconut oil for grease) 8x8x2 inch pan. Bake for about 20-23min, until center feels cakey and doesn't jiggle around. Let it cool on a wired rack for about 10-15min, then use a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut them into hearts! Carefully, use a spatula to move them onto a plate. Voila! Enjoy!
