Another Night, Another Brownie

I had a very relaxing evening last night. Here’s what I threw together for dinner:

Got wilted greens? Cook them!

I added lots of spicy seasonings along with salsa, a sweet potato, and jalapenos. Then I heated up some refried beans to accompany the veggies.

This was about the time I decided I was making a Mexican grain-free spin off :)

To top the mix, I used Chobani plain Greek yogurt (in place of sour cream) and more salsa. (No such thing as too much salsa, of course.)

No shame in all of my sour cream Greek yoogurt

I had a lot of leftovers too- the best way to go! Dinner- check. Lunch the next day- check. And on to dessert.

Another day, another mug brownie

I just can’t help myself. These brownies are so good and I’m getting better results each time I make one. Just what I need, right? 😉

This was definitely my best dessert so far. I used this recipe as a base and swapped in coconut flour for whole wheat flour, applesauce for yogurt, used a little less sugar, and didn’t have any chocolate chips. I also mixed the ingredients in a separate nother bowl, which helped the appearance! Then I topped it all off with sprinkles of course. 😀

I’m thinking I’ll take a break from my brownie mug infatuation for a few days.

What food or dessert are you currently hooked on?

    I love Greek yogurt as “sour cream!” And hmm, I’m actually NOT on any crazy food kicks right now! Wait–I take that back! Plantains! Can’t get enough of ’em. Something about Mexican/Latin food and spring, I think!

    And I agree, no such thing as too much salsa!

  14. Courtney says:

    Yum… that brownie looks AMAZING!

  15. P says:

    Mmmm, that mug brownie with sprinkles must have tasted fabulous!

    I have been avoiding dessert lately since I am trying to cut my body fat so tea has been the GO TO this last week which is fine with me! I have to curb that sweet tooth somehow! After these next couple of weeks that mug brownie may have to make it onto my list 😉 Have an amazing weekend Alex! Love + Shine CourtStar

    I am the same way…I get addicted to a certain dessert and eat it for days in a row! Currently I am obsessed with cookies and cream icecream with m&ms and sprinkles mixed in. It’s the best!

  18. I feel like sprinkles make everything look, taste, and feel better when you are eating it. That brownie looks delicious though. I’ve never made anything in a mug before. Mainly because my mugs are always in use with hot tea or cocoa, but I’m definitely going to put one aside to make some crazy mug concoction.

  19. Yum! Love sauteed greens! And I need to get on the mug brownie bandwagon. I haven’t made a mug cake in FOREVER! I see one in my near future! 🙂
