Ok, I think the title of this post gives it away. It’s about brownies, people. But these aren’t just ordinary brownies.
These are blender brownies.
Balls, are they good. And healthy. I refrained from mentioning the healthy bit to Tyler until he consumed a couple. I didn’t want the thought of ‘healthy’ consuming his mind and altering his opinion of their taste. BECAUSE.THESE.ARE.GOOD.

- 3 eggs

- Put all ingredients in the blender.
- Blend till smooth.
- Pour batter in pan.
- Optional: drop chocolate chips over top of poured batter

Ack, it couldn’t get any easier than that. EXCEPT- it’s a bit more dangerous ‘licking the bowl.’ I wouldn’t do that.
I actually first attempted to use my brand new food processor for this, but one of the latches was defective. I of course had to make a call to the nice man and have him send me a warranty part. Frighteningly enough, that made my day. Getting a new (free) part for my kitchen appliance. Sigh. I am really a grown up now. Next thing you know, we’ll be vacuum shopping or some crap like that.
Oh, and I prepared, transfered from processor to back up blender, and baked this IN WHITE SHORTS.
Baller right here. This is my makeshift outfit shot- we don’t have any full length mirrors. Yet. (Like the new bathroom color??!!)
