Rice Krispy S’more Brownies

IMG_3273

I need these brownies today — this weekend, I had a bit of a crisis … I set out to do my usual kitchen shenanigans and right in the middle of swimming in delicious baking …I ran out of flour.

FLOUR.

How is that even possible?!!? In my kitchen, there are 5 things I never run out of :

  1. Butter
  2. Sugar
  3. Flour
  4. Eggs
  5. Wine

For the love of all that is delicious – WHO RUNS OUT OF FLOUR?!? So instead of being practical and going to buy some … I just drank wine.

Hence the brownies. Sweet Week , Monday saving trashed up brownies.

But not just any everyday-joe-schmoe brownies … these brownies are straight up craaaaazzzyy. Nutso. Not just filled with fudgy-goodness – but stuffed with rice krispy squares and then toasted, gooey marshmallows. Welcome to the crazy-train.

Chooo-choooo!!

Dark chocolate chunk kefir Oatmeal Banana bread.

If I ever become pregnant I seriously worry for my husband. I’m not even close to being pregnant and I get cravings like a mad woman!!

Randomly I’ll get a whiff of maple syrup and NEED TO HAVE waffles … sometimes is cheese danishes … other times its peanut butter cookies … other times doughnuts … sometimes it’s salad ( not very often, but it happens …) this time it was banana bread.

Banana bread studded with huge chocolate chunks – dark chocolate chunks. Not too sweet … so I can justify it as breakfast, but also sweet enough that I can have it as an afternoon snack over coffee.

That’s where this fine lookin loaf came from : Dark chocolate chunk kefir Oatmeal Banana bread.

I’ve never actually baked with kefir before, I didn’t know what to expect – I hoped that it would be acidic like buttermilk, but with a lower fat content. The result was perfect, a dense banana bread, that was loaded with chocolate chunks. Sweet – but not overly sweet … and ( note: I’m about to say the “M” word ) Moist … I can feel my teeth hurting from just reading that word.

Make the bread ladies and germs, you totes-ma-goats need this bread. Ahhh and then make this banana foster with it – you’re welcome!! And now … I need that banana foster.
