Tony ate lunch at work today, so the kids and I had a "snacky lunch" -- seedless watermelon, roasted green beans, pita chips and hummus.
For dessert, I made some cinnamon blondies.
They made the house smell wonderful. I veganized this recipe. I'm not much of a baker, but veganizing baked goods is easy if you have a box of Ener-g Egg Replacer on hand.
1/2 cup vegan margarine
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
2 "eggs" (1 Tbsp. Ener-g egg replacer + 1/4 cup water)
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
First, melt the margarine and brown sugar together in a saucepan over medium-low heat. When it starts to bubble around the edges, remove from heat and let cool for about 10 minutes.
While the sugar mixture cools, preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 8x8" baking pan with parchment and grease the parchment. Combine the flour, cinnamon, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Stir the eggs and vanilla into sugar mixture. Add sugar mixture to flour mixture and stir until combined. Pour into pan. Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes, then run a knife around the edges to loosen and invert onto a cooling rack, peeling off the parchment paper. Let cool and slice into squares.
Have a great afternoon! The weather is perfect today and we are spending most of the day in the backyard. Can you spot the Jackson in this photo?
