    Brownies Everyone Can Enjoy!

    Brownies Everyone Can Enjoy!

    Our family has a range of healthy eating requirements, which makes finding recipes for the whole family challenging.  However I have just found a fantastic recipe on the back of the Kirkland Signature Almond Flour bag.  The recipe is gluten free but with two small tweaks everyone in our home can enjoy this.  

    I replaced the dairy butter with a Miyokos European Style Cultured Vegan Butter and the egg with a Flax Seed egg replacement. Check your cocoa powder and chocolate chips to ensure they fit your dietary requirements.  We used Kirkland Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips and Ghirardellie Premium Baking Cocoa.  

    Our 3 Piece Mixing Bowl Sets are awesome tools for this bake. If you are looking for a value our 11 Piece Bakeware Set comes with the 3 stainless steel bowls, valued separately $18.99  (regularly for $30.00) plus the stainless steel measuring spoon valued separately for $13.99, which means the 3 stainless steel colanders are a steal at $8.01! 

    I thought I would mention again my high school Home Economic teachers training of assembling all of the ingredients and equipment before baking. Our equipment list is below the recipe. This combined with reading the recipe throughly before beginning really helps for an efficient, no mistakes bake.

    Luscious Flourless Orange Cake

    Luscious Flourless Orange Cake


    Here in the husMait kitchen, we look for a great treat that will satisfy our sweet tooth and have some redeeming qualities. We found this recipe posted over on Instagram, and it looks so moist and delicious, not to mention the recipe had simple ingredients and was easy to follow. Baking Envy, Flourless Orange Cake 

    Assemble all of your utensils: knife, cutting board, pan, measuring cups, measuring spoons, mixing bowl, blender and 8 inch round cake tin.

    Assemble all of the ingredients: oranges, sugar, almond meal, eggs, vanilla essence, and baking powder.  Then follow the recipe linked above. 

    The recipe calls for whole oranges, which are boiled and then processed in a blender, unfortunately, the oranges I used were a bit pithy and left a slightly bitter flavor in the cake. For that reason, I would take the time to peel the zest and cut the pith away from the fruit before boiling it. Another slight change I made was to cook the remaining orange/sugar water down until it was beginning to be jammy. That made a wonderful glaze that remained on the top of the cake instead of disappearing into the cake.  

    Everyone here loved this cake's excellent taste and texture. The use of the almond meal was sheer brilliance as it adds a luscious texture and flavor to the cake. To add a professional finish to this cake I would add some candied orange tweels to the top.

    This would be a lovely cake for an afternoon tea or formal dinner dessert as you can bake it up to three days in advance, storing it in the refrigerator, or frozen for six months remembering to leave the glaze off until you are ready to serve it. 

    If you bake this cake let us know how it turns out, and go give Chloe, over at Baking Envy a review as well. 

    With warm wishes for your home,

    Cinnamon Roll Energy Bites

    Today in our husMait Home kitchen we tried a recipe from an Instagram friend Hannah Bostdorff @Hannahharvestinghealth. 

    The Silicone Flour Scraper made a perfect mixing tool as there was no sticking and the shape is perfect in my hand and easily runs around the sides and and the base of the bowl. 

     
    The Stainless Steel Cookie Scoop made forming equal balls quick and easy! 
    Here is Hannah’s recipe for Cinnamon Energy Bites
    Ingredients
    • 1/3 cup almond flour
    • 1/4 cup coconut flour
    • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
    • 2 Tbsp honey
    • 1/4 cup nut butter

    We adjusted the texture of the bite by adding 3-4 Tablespoons of unsweetened shredded coconut plus 1 Tablespoon water. The addition gave a lovely chew to the bite.

    Mix everything together and separate into 8 balls. Roll in extra coconut flour and refrigerate.

    Almond Joy Cookies

    almond cookies
    It was not like usual chocolate cookies that I thought of always as non-nutritional as a harm to health. A sudden curve appears unintentionally on my face, and I said: “It has almonds?” She replied, smiling: “Yes, almonds with no flour, no butter, and no eggs!" I didn’t believe my ears how you could bake cookies without any flour, butter, and sugar? So, for confirmation, I asked her again, and she repeated the same. I also asked her about other ingredients.
