Part 3 -Big Life updates

My mom passed away on October 16, 2022. She had pancreatic cancer so I was prepared for this but it still hard. My dad also passed away from cancer so I was already familiar with the process of what happens after a parent passes this time is different because my mom and I did everything together before. My mom and I were each other’s bubble during the pandemic and we were each other’s social life for a long time. It is a tough adjustment now living in a different city where I don’t know many people without the person that I spent most of my free time with. My moms last words to me were be strong you are strong I will hold on to that. My mom also wrote a goodbye letter to my brother and me. I’m not sure if my brother has read it yet but I want to say if you are going to write a goodbye letter don’t wait until you are heavily medicated and in lots of pain to do it or just don’t do it. I’m holding on to the actual memories I had with my mom the letter has been given to my brother to do wh

October 30, 2017 Healthy Flourless Vegan Fudge Brownies, Facebook recipe #3

The link to the original recipe no longer works; however it is from Big Man's World healthy flourless Fudge Brownies. The link for the original video is on livingvancouverloca's facebook page which can be found here https://www.facebook.com/livingvancouverloca/.

I could only watch the video and not find the original recipe so this is not an exact recipe; however it turned out okay.


There are only 5 ingredients and my version is vegan since I used vegan chocolate chips

 sweet potato, cocoa powder, almond butter for the brownies. My friend gave me the giant potato and I steamed it but not long enough.
 The original recipe says to heat the nut butter but I don't have a microwave so I decided that I could mash the potato and mix the butter in the blender of my magic bullet. It didn't work very well and I had to add water to mix it a little.
 In the end I came out with a decent looking batter. The original recipe calls for cooking at 350 for 25 minutes. I cooked in the toaster oven with a bigger sweet potato so I cooked for 40 minutes at 350.
 Then for the icing melt chocolate chips and coconut milk. I used my steamer pot to melt it but I originally put too much milk in.
 Too much milk means more chocolate
 now they are frosted
 I have this left over chocolate if I freeze it will turn to ice cream?
Final result I am not a fan. They are not sweet enough and have a bit of a dry texture. I may try this again using pumpkin or banana instead of sweet potato.

What I am a fan of is the frozen chocolate it tastes great and the texture is like that of a cheaper vegan ice cream. I think if I mix a frozen banana in it next time I will get a really great chocolate soft serve.
