I don’t think that I’ve ever eaten so many lentils in one day! Holy lentils! 😯

But, at least I enjoyed some of them like this:

Oh, yes, that is a Lentil Brownie covered with warm caramel sauce, and it was fabulous! 😀

Lentil Brownies

Makes 12

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cooked lentils, drained
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 ounces chocolate-flavored yogurt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350*F.
  • Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  • Coat 8X8 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Pour batter into pan and spread evenly.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until brownies are firm.
  • Allow to cool before cutting.
  • Eat and enjoy!

These brownies turned out really chocolately, but the texture wasn’t quite right. I like my brownies moist and cake-like, but this batch was a bit too dense for me. Maybe the recipe needs some fat in it? Now don’t get me wrong, these Lentil Brownies turned out pretty good, but the recipe is still a work in progress, ya know? Of course, the caramel sauce made it taste better! 😉

Dinner

Tonight’s dinner also included lentils as well as brown rice, turkey kilbasa, onions, carrots, garlic, and Worceshire sauce. I didn’t measure any of the ingredients. I just cooked up the different elements, combined them in a big pot, and threw in galic and Worceshire sauce until it tasted good. What can I say, I like to wing it in the kitchen! 😉

I also drank a small glass of white wine with dinner.

Snack

For the record, I snacked on a Peanut Butter Cookie Luna Bar while at NuVal. Lunch didn’t hold me over very well, so a snack was much-needed. (Btw, I wasn’t a fan of this flavor. It tasted too artificial. Boo. 😕 )

Time to PACK and get my life together for tomorrow’s trip to Philly. I’m so excited!!! :mrgreen:

  1. The lentil brownie looks so good! As does your dinner creation 🙂 How funny about the Luna Bar- that is my favorite flavor of them! I do think it is a bit too sweet, though.

  2. Maybe add some applesauce to the mix? When I sub applesauce for part of the vegetable oil in a recipe it usually adds a lighter, cakelike texture to my backed goods.

  3. I’m going to try this but maybe I’m going to throw in some chocolate chips in there or something? Or spread some peanut butter on top? Or peanut butter chips?
