A few weekends ago, we took the kids to Apple Hill for some cider and apple picking. We go a few times every year, and it is something I always look forward to.

I have been busy in the kitchen using up all the goodies we brought home with us.

There was fruit leather apple butter, cider braised chicken,  cider bread  and of course the macarons

While at one of the farms, I noticed a basket of baked goods at the register, and in this basket were apple brownies. Not a Blondie, but an actual chocolate brownie. I left without one, but I have been thinking  about them ever since. You know how I feel about brownies.

I have no idea if mine are even close to the ones I saw, but they were petty darn tasty, and they contain NO flour, butter, or oil of any kind.

{ with almond meal, eggs, and apple butter it can be considered breakfast right? }

I LOVE using the mini muffin tin. I don’t need to cut them {I cannot cut a straight line to save  my life} and they are just the right size for snacking and packing in lunches.
