Who lives near me?

I am kind of interested in knowing if any of the people that frequent this site are in my area. It would be nice to meet someone local to see about doing things jointly with… such as an almond purchase. Is anyone intersted in listing name, city/state and maybe email for orders not local to Utah. I really want some almonds but have not found anyone interested in sharing an order as my friends all think my eating habits are nuts.

By the way, I found and made a flourless brownie recipe yesterday and it was very good. Even my husband, who can eat regular brownies said they were as good as any he has had.   It is as follows….

 

 

 

Flourless Brownies

 

 

 

 

 

Makes 16

 

No one will ever guess that black beans are the secret ingredient in this recipe!

 

Ingredients

 

1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added black beans, drained and rinsed (I cook and use my own as I always have some on hand)

3 large eggs ( I used egg substitute)

1/3 cup melted butter, more for the baking dish ( I used raw  coconut oil)

1/4 cup raw cocoa powder

1/8 teaspoon sea salt

2 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons cane sugar ( I use raw cane sugar)

1/2 cup gluten-free semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts

 

Method

 

Preheat oven to 350 °F.

Oil  an 8-inch baking pan. Place the black beans, eggs, melted butter/oil, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla, and sugar in the

bowl of a food processor and blend until smooth. Remove the blade and stir in the chocolate chips and

walnuts. Transfer mixture to the prepared pan. Bake the brownies for 30 to 35 minutes, or until just set in the center.

Cool before cutting into squares.
