Like most kids, my girls are obsessed with sweets. I don’t know if it was an in-utero-thing (too many vegan cupcakes while pregnant with Gemma) or just an inherited love for desert. So I have to be super mindful of what we bake, mostly because of the weekly birthday party binges. I was given a “brownie recipe” made with black beans, dates, almond butter and apples which turned out to be trickery at its best. It was yet one more reminder that kids can enjoy just about anything if it tastes good. (It passed my taste test, too.) This Ouef monster sweater is what everyone in my house should be wearing….We attack all brownies in sight! Email me if you’d like the recipe….
