I’m coming at you a little later than usual this Monday with my weekly workouts and weekend updates. Having my office closed on President’s Day means I get to work from home and squeeze in some baking and blogging. It’s been a long week, and a cozy but absolutely arctic weekend, but there were some shorter runs and a lot of food to fuel them.
As I mentioned in my weekly recap and WIAW, I hosted my second annual dinner party last Saturday evening. I’m calling it second annual because I hosted my first one last February, and I’m hoping to continue the tradition of bringing friends from different parts of my life together on a Saturday night during a short and chilly month for years to come.
This WIAW showcases one of the last days of my elimination, when I was missing dairy like crazy and still super hungry all the time. I had high hopes last Thursday that a baked quinoa cake, a few dollops of peanut butter, and a giant apple might hold me over from breakfast for an entire two hours until an early lunch. No such luck, though it was delicious.
There’s been a lot of chocolate around this blog lately – dark chocolate to be specific. I’ve shared my Double Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cake for breakfast, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake Bars and Decadent Dark Chocolate Cupcakes for dessert, and Cocoa Chocolate Chip Muffins and Paleo Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies for snacks anytime. Today’s recipe takes all that chocolate to a new level of intensity. These grain free Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownies are so dense and delicious, you’ll feel like you’re taking a bite of a solid dark chocolate bar, if that bar had the texture of fudge.
