Damn you Nemo and Dunkin Donuts.
For those of you who haven’t heard, Nemo is the storm hitting here soon, 30 inches of snow? Yeah why couldn’t you come during the week so I can have a snow day?! But really, since when did we start naming snow storms? For those of you just starting to read when we got hit with Sandy and most of LI was out of gas, yeah that’s what’s going on now. Two hours to get gas? No thanks, I rather eat donuts. People are crayy.
my thoughts exactly
So why Dunkin Donuts? Because every morning I go there I have to stare at these brownie batter filled chocolate donuts. Then think all throughout the day on how I could make them at home. I don’t have a regular donut pan just a mini and they worked out perfectly. I am going to get a regular pan though just for these.
3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup raw sugar
1 Tbs baking powder
1 flax egg (or energ-egg/real egg)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted (canola/butter will work!)
1 ripe avocado
1/2 very ripe banana
2 tbs cocoa powder
2 tbs maple syrup (or stevia)
Preheat oven to 400. Combine flour, sugar, cocoa and baking powder in a bowl. Add egg, oil, milk and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Spoon the mixture into a donut pan filling only half way. Blend the ingredients for the chocolate filling very well then put it onto then top of the donuts. Top the donuts with the rest of the donut batter. Bake 10 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before taking them out of the pan. Top with icing if you want! [Recipe Below]
Mix in a small bowl, Dip donuts in and then dip in sprinkles if desired.
Perfect for a snow storm! I am going out tonight with a friend but I am so excited to plant my butt on the couch and catch up on DVR until Monday. Who am I kidding my school work will be right next to me and I probably won’t watch tv lol.
What makes me happy: Dressing up! Which I am tonight. Being in school I think it would be frowned upon me wearing over the knee stilettos. Then at work, I dress nice but I am not bringing my A game in that department because I have ruined enough of my nice clothes spilling color/bleach on them. But really how cute is this dress? I could wear this stuff everyday!
Do you like dressing up?
Whats your go to snacks/foods during storms?
