Hello hello hello! It’s time for a Thursday Treats recipe again! I’m so delighted to be at home for this one. I thought that I would have all the time in the world to work on recipes and share lots more posts on the blog, but I genuinely have not had a spare second since I got back! Thank god for Boutique Bake sending me out their range of healthy baking mixes to try out. Otherwise I would have been without another Thursday Treats recipe again, which I’m trying my best to stick to! The first recipe mix I tried was the Almond & Cacao Brownie Mix. I had seen a lot of people talking about Boutique Bake while I was in New York, so I was really keen to try them out for myself. The whole idea behind Boutique Bake is so brilliant, I’m annoyed I didn’t think of it first! I love how the healthy range is easy for people to have their treats while staying on track with their goals at the same time. I know that I share a lot of my own recipes here on Cinnamon Soul, but I’ll be the first to admit that it really is hard to find spare time & also have all of the ingredients in your kitchen at the right time. Sure look at me, I can barely stick to sharing one recipe a week here. Its trickier I know, when I have to come up with the recipe, test it, test it again, wait until I have the right light in my apartment to photograph it (usually have to wait until the weekend), edit the photos and then do up the blog post. But even this week for example, I didn’t have a spare second, so this ready to use mix was a godsend! When I use the other mixes as my Thursday Treats, you’ll know I was tight on time those weeks too!
For these brownies, I literally added two ripe bananas & three eggs. SO simple! I decorated with some Dairymilk and homegrown red and golden raspberries, delicious!I’m going to keep this post short & sweet. I’ll talk about my time at home in a later post, I know I 100% will have more time next week to refocus and start putting out more posts. A few people have asked for US visa and work related posts so that’s next on my list! I’m back up to Dublin again tonight for a sleepover in my two best friends’ apartment, if they could just move to New York that would be great! One thing I’ve decided since coming home after being away for so long, is that I 100% will be making much more regular trips home!
PS. How funny are my dogs playing in the background of the feature image?! If you follow on Snapchat (niamhos21) you will know all too well how obsessed I am with them!
