There is something magical about desserts which makes us crave them but unfortunately most of them in the market are neither healthy nor vegan. I have to admit that I get ridiculously excited when I see a vegan dessert or ice cream somewhere 🙂
For valentine weekend, I decide to try out a recipe for brownie bites in the hope that my son would also like them. Usually he is not a big fan of the other dishes that I try but he is still a sport and will try new recipes. The recipe was super simple to follow but the bake time suggested in the recipe was not enough. Not sure if it was because I used a mini cupcake baking tray as opposed to a flat brownie mold. I ended up baking them for approximately 40 minutes instead of the recommended 15 – 20 mins.
The brownies tasted good but somehow the texture was not like that of traditional brownies. We enjoyed them with some chocolate strawberries and some espresso. Even after all the effort, my son did not like them as they tasted too much like “dates” which was the main ingredient. Oh well, someday I will impress him!
