recipe: peanut butter cup brownies

An Instagram friend posted a picture of some peanut butter cup brownies that she had baked a few months back. I thought that they looked soooo delicious, and so I asked her to send me the recipe. She did, and after changing a few ingredients, I went on to make them for our family. I think that they were only in our fridge for about three days before we devoured them all. This is something that I will definitely be making again and again.

Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

Ingredients: 

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
¾ cup butter
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 large eggs
1 ½ cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
¾ cup all-purpose flour
½ tsp salt
9 peanut butter cups
butter, to grease

Steps:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×9 baking dish with butter.

2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine first 4 ingredients. Place in microwave and cook for 40-second increments until mixture is smooth.

3. Beat eggs, sugar, and vanilla together in a large bowl. Stir in microwave ingredients. Slowly add flour and salt and mix until well combined.

4. Pour half of the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Put peanut butter cups evenly on top. Then pour the remaining mixture on top. Place in oven for about 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Do not overcook.

recipe: roasted chickpeas

This pregnancy, I seem to crave nothing but sweet foods during the day, and savory foods at night. Not wanting to gain a hundred pounds (I’m not a pretty pregnant woman), I’m trying to substitute healthy alternatives to classic salty snacks- ie. chips and popcorn. I remembered a recipe that I used to make back when I was a vegetarian and needed more protein in my diet. Enter roasted chickpeas. They are super salty and crunchy, and all sorts of healthy. Enjoy!

Roasted Chickpeas

Ingredients:

2 cups chickpeas, drained
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp seasoning salt
½ tsp chili powder
½ tsp garlic powder

Steps:

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. In a medium-sized bowl, combine all ingredients. Toss until chickpeas are well coated.

2. Spread the chickpeas onto a baking sheet. Place in the oven for approximately 45 minutes, or until desired crunchiness. Remove from oven, and put into airtight container. Eat whenever you are craving something salty, healthy, and delicious!
