“What you see before you, my friend, is the result of a lifetime of chocolate.”
― Katharine Hepburn
I was very excited that this recipe turned out! I have had several discouraging flops over the last few weeks, which is why I have shared few recipes. Ironically, I made them this morning while listening to a podcast about a family who lived on the brink of starvation for many years. It was very interesting– I didn’t find it myself– it was used by one of my CELTA colleagues last night in his receptive skills lesson– we were all riveted! The story made me look into them a bit more and makes me thankful for the freedom from religious persecution that we have and for the abundance of food (even friendly food for me!) that I have.
The recipe was simple:
1 mashed banana
1 tbsp. of cocoa powder
2 heaping tbsps of GF all-purpose flour (Joe’s of course)
1/4 cup almond milk
1 tsp. raw sugar (I’m trying it out in an attempt to cut out refined– I don’t know that it helps a ton, but I love the taste, and it is fewer calories, though not by much)
The consistency was moist and spongy, and I topped them with strawberry jam. Yum!
