Ahhh, I've been putting off this blog all week.
We've had a full and busy allergy week:
I'll tell you, the emotions are high these days. But yesterday, my daughter had early release, and I put aside work, and we just baked in the kitchen together. She barely needs me there anymore, really, but it was a joy.
All of those food allergy topics are important, and relevant, and I'm sure to share them in my writing as I go. But right now, I'm chucking all of the worries and posting my daughter's brownie recipe, which finally improves on the cakey version I have on hand. The recipe stays sturdy as a cake as it cools (no sinking!) because of the just-right amount of applesauce...and it's got some chewy goodness from extra melted chocolate chips.
These brownies are, as usual, vegan + free from soy/tree nuts/peanuts/seeds. They're delicious. And already gone (I gave them away! It's Lent! I didn't eat 16 brownies already, even with help.)
Enjoy the baking and the snacking, and have a great weekend!
PS -- If you are into cakey brownies instead, just leave out the chips and extra tablespoon of oil. You'll still get yummy chocolate treats, just with an airy texture.
Hi, I'm Nicole.
ABOUT THE BLOG
An apothecary is a person or a place. Either one implies healing and relates to pharmacy in its truest sense, as a source of treatment and advice.
This blog is my way of uniting my pharmacy training with my efforts to provide a healthy and safe lifestyle for my family. In true apothecary form, I research and prescribe alternative ingredients that work just right in each specific recipe, and I would like to share the results with anyone who needs help making their own family’s kitchen allergy safe and heart healthy.
