Today was not my day

A lot of things went wrong today.  Actually last night when I left the lights on in the car while at work and draining the battery is when things going wrong started.  Lack of sleep, shopping for no specific reason, and constant car troubles led me to BAKE.

Sweet sweet gluten free vanilla cupcakes

With some help from bob

Strawberry on top good idea

Strawberries inside GREAT idea

NOMS I love fruit in baked goods

Yesterday I was craving sweets, shocking.  So after some blog stalking I decided little bites inspired by Oh She Glows would be a great idea.
I don't do measurements: 
  • Ingredients
    • Choco chips
    • Peanut Butter
    • Brown Rice syrup
    • Oats
    • Marshmallows
    • Almonds
    • And Kix for crunch!
  • Melt first 3 ingredients in microwave for literally 20 seconds 
  • Add all other ingredients 
  • Freeze for 5 minutes
  • EAT 
I thought I should add some protein to these sweets and tofu it was.  

I used one block of extra firm tofu that I drained by wrapping it in a towel and putting heavy books on top for 15 mins. It baked to perfection. Crispy/chewy yummm!

Tomorrow I'm going rock climbing! Like real life on a cliff!  I cannot wait!  Back with a recap!

xoxo,

Rachel

  3. You are a STAR! You set a fantastic example for all to recognize...anything is possible. I am so proud of you, not just because you climbed a rock, or ran a marathon, but because you are strong, smart, and brave. I love you with all my heart.
