Leap Second Post

This actually has very little or nothing to do with June 30th's 'leap second'. Rather, I am posting this really quickly since it has been ages. Don't worry, more substance will return when brain capacity returns post thesis! In the meantime, we can turn to tasty things. The more I have to do, the more I tend to bake. As an example, in the past three days I've baked a pie, a loaf of bread, and a pan of brownies. I'm also supposed to have a reasonable excuse for a draft thesis by Friday...

Anywho, these brownies turned out really fudgily fantastic, so now you too can procrastinate with tasty baked delights.
Not-In-The-Least Healthy, Time-Wasting Brownies
1/2 vegetable or melted coconut oil
1 heaping tbs peanut butter
1/4 cup almond milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup whole meal flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)

1. Whisk or use a fork to mix the first seven ingredients until everything is incorporated.
2. Fold in dry ingredients until the batter is smooth.
3. Pour into a small greased square brownie pan. Bake at 180C (375F) for 20-30 minutes, until the outside is firm to touch. Remove and allow to cool. Don't overbake!!!
