Flourless Brownies

Posted by Lindsey G.

I try to eat mostly grain free when it comes to desserts. We also do not use any refined sugars and really stick to mostly raw honey and maple syrup in our treats. I have tried a few different ’grain-free’ brownie recipes and have been less than thrilled with the results. It turns out grain-free brownie recipes can be kind of tricky to get right. I find the coconut flour brownies to be hard to swallow (to dry!) and the almond flour ones don’t agree with me. This is why I haven’t posted a true brownie recipe yet on my blog.

I was so excited last week when I stumbled upon an amazing recipe for flourless brownies made with natural sweeteners in another fellow blogger, Ditch the Wheat’s cookbook, Indulge, which includes over 70 grain-free and paleo treat recipes. You heard that right, this is a completely flourless recipe – that means gluten-free, grain-free and almond and coconut flour free! The only ’flour’ in these is the cocoa powder. These brownies are more than spot on. They are brilliant! These are going to be my go-to brownie recipe from now on!


4 large eggs
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup of coconut palm sugar*
¼ cup + 1 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt


Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). In a bowl, mix all the ingredients until velvety smooth (I used my Vitamix!). Pour into a parchment paper lined 8 x 4 loaf pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes. The brownies will be soft in the middle at 30 minutes and have a slight jiggle. Leave the brownies for at least 5 hours before cutting and eating (I personally couldn’t wait that long and I put them in the fridge after about 15 min of cooling down time and then ate them about an hour later!).

This recipe makes 8 brownies.

*I now use 3/4 cups maple syrup (Grade B) in place of the palm sugar for a moist and gooey texture. Cooked for 30-35 minutes the center will appear to be uncooked but after cooling for a few hours (or in the fridge) it will settle and be more firm. The texture will be more like a molten chocolate cake.

Blood donations from people vaccinated against HPV may be harmful to recipients

S.A.N.E. Vax, Inc., contracted with an independent lab which tested 13 Gardasil vials from 13 different lots from all over the world and found that the genetically modified HPV DNA strands present in Gardasil had firmly attached to the vaccination’s aluminum adjuvant in a whopping 100% of the samples tested.

While natural HPV DNA does not stay in the bloodstream long, the aluminum binding allows the genetically modified recombinant HPV DNA (rDNA) to behave differently, potentially entering cells and wreaking havoc.

The vials were analyzed after a concerned parent contacted S.A.N.E. Vax, because her 13-year-old daughter developed an auto-immune reaction that would later be diagnosed as acute juvenile rheumatoid arthritis within 24 hours after receiving her third Gardasil vaccine. Two years following the incident, the girl’s blood still tested positive for HPV DNA that should not be there. In fact, these strands have also been found in post-mortem samples as well, as in the case of teen Jasmine Renata, who died inexplicably in her sleep six months after receiving a Gardasil shot.

S.A.N.E. Vax points out that both Merck, the pharmaceutical company that manufactures Gardasil, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) claimed there was no viral DNA in Gardasil at the time of its “fast-tracked” approval. Milford Hospital Pathologist Dr. Sin Hang Lee, who analyzed the Gardasil vials, testified, “Undegraded viral and plasmid DNA fragments are known to activate macrophages, causing them to release tumor necrosis factor, a myocardial depressant which can induce lethal shock in animals and humans.”

I Sugar, You Slave

Sugar Frosted Lips


I don’t have to introduce myself. You think you know me. You only know what I want you to know about me, and what I do. I come to you disguised as a friend, yet I am your worst nightmare if you could you see who I am and what I do to you every moment of the day.

I am a created being, no different than the Terminator in the movies. I am programmed to make the world addicted to me and destroy the health of all whom I contact and meet. I don’t even exist as a sentient, thinking being. I am an unthinking machine that responds, reacts and acts as programmed and I have an android mind that computes much like you, but without any human sympathy or feeling.


Thousands of years ago, the only sweetener was honey. Then in the far east I was created as an innocent sweetener man made from cane and beets, but nobody knew how to make more than a few rough quantities of me. I was called sweet salt, and people paid dearly for me. Only the rich could afford me or would ever have a sugar hangover.

Then it was discovered that I could be used to make rum. It was then my plan finally started taking effect, for I made the word slavery into a huge reality. Whole countries in the Caribbean sprang into being just to raise sugar cane which then made sugar which made rum. The world began to crave me. Much of the South and the islands of the Caribbean became rich by using slaves to raise cane. Britain was so busy defending her sugar islands that she was unable to put full attention on the American Revolution and lost it.

It has been said that I am the curse laid on humanity in payment for the slavery that I created to give me the power I now hold over man.

Man did well before I came along. I started slowly but in time I gained control over him, and now he cannot do without some kind of sweetener. He even created other sweeteners to substitute for me, which is laughable for those are even more damaging to his body than I. So my goal is helped by them. The effects of sugar on the immune system is insidious but destructive. When he created high fructose corn syrup as a cheap substitute for me is when his health took a nose dive.

If I could feel emotion, I would be exuberant at my success. I can only continue to move forward in my goal to make man more hooked to me or some form of me. In America he eats 156 pounds of me a year per person. I am the cause of obesity, diabetes, heart trouble and a host of other diseases that kill him. And he doesn’t even know it! I am the ideal stealth hitman.

Beginning in a new chapter, Part II, I will to show what happens when you eat me. I bet you will be horrified, but even knowing the perilous truth, you will continue eating me for you cannot live without me. You are now my slave!

Dont Be A Psycho - Use Commas

Warning! Only to be read with empty bladder!

Don’t mess with old people (especially little old ladies).

A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large plastic garbage bags behind her. One of the bags was ripped and every once in a while a $20 fell out onto the sidewalk.

Noticing this, a policeman stopped her, and said, “Ma’am, there are $20 bills falling out of that bag.”

“Oh really? Darn it!” said the little old lady. “I’d better go back and see if I can find them. Thanks for telling me officer.”

“Well, now, not so fast,” said the cop. “Where did you get all that money? You didn’t steal it, did you?”

“Oh, no, no, nothing like that”, said the old lady. “You see, my back yard is right next to the football stadium parking lot. On game days, a lot of fans come and pee through a knot hole in the fence, right into my flower garden. It used to really tick me off. Kills the flowers, you know. Then I thought, ’why not make the best of it?’ So, now, on game days, I stand behind the fence by the knot hole, real quiet, with my hedge clippers... Every time some guy sticks his thingy through my fence, I surprise him, I grab hold of it and say, ’O.K., buddy! Give me $20, or off it comes.’

“Well, that seems only fair,” said the cop, laughing. “OK. Good luck! Oh, by the way, what’s in the other bag?”

“Well, you know how it is in business”, said the little old lady, “not everybody pays.”

I’m learning how to make chocolate!

Throw Chocolate At Her

The Doctor’s Visit

An older gentleman had an appointment to see the urologist who shared offices with several other doctors. The waiting room was filled with patients. As he approached the receptionist’s desk, he noticed that the receptionist was a large unfriendly woman who looked like a Sumo wrestler. He gave her his name.

In a very loud voice, the receptionist said, “YES, I HAVE YOUR NAME HERE. YOU WANT TO SEE THE DOCTOR ABOUT IMPOTENCE, RIGHT?”

All the patients in the waiting room snapped their heads around to look at the very embarrassed man. He recovered quickly, and in an equally loud voice replied, “NO, I’VE COME TO INQUIRE ABOUT A SEX CHANGE OPERATION, BUT I DON’T WANT THE SAME DOCTOR THAT DID YOURS.” The room erupted in applause!

It’s not good to mess with us Old Guys.

16 year-old Invents Bio-plastic from Banana Peels

What comes to mind before you discard your banana peel? Certainly not the consideration of its use to reduce petroleum-based pollution and create bio-plastic, yet this is exactly what Elif Bilgin, 16, from Istanbul, Turkey, sought to achieve and successfully accomplished. Winner of the 2013 Science in Action award, Google’s third $50,000 annual competition, she addressed the need for environmentally friendly alternatives with practical resources and easy-to-attain banana peels.

Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident

Thirty-three years ago to the day, the United States narrowly missed a nuclear holocaust on its soil. The so-called ’Damascus Accident’ involved a Titan II intercontinental ballistic missile mishap at a launch complex outside Damascus, Arkansas.

During a routine maintenance procedure, a young worker accidentally dropped a nine-pound tool in the silo, piercing the missile’s skin and causing a major leak of flammable rocket fuel. Sitting on top of that Titan 2 was the most powerful thermonuclear warhead ever deployed on an American missile. The weapon was about 600 times more powerful than the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima.

For the next nine hours, a group of airmen put themselves at grave risk to save the missile and prevent a massive explosion that would’ve caused incalculable damage.

The story is detailed in Eric Schlosser’s new book, “Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident, and the Illusion of Safety,” which explores how often the United States has come within a hair’s breadth of a domestic nuclear detonation or an accidental war. Drawing on thousands of pages of recently declassified government documents and interviews with scores of military personnel and nuclear scientists, Schlosser shows that America’s nuclear weapons pose a grave risk to humankind."

Hummingbird Is Google’s Biggest Algorithm Change In 12 Years

Let’s get one thing straight right up front. Hummingbird is not a new algorithm update like Panda or Penguin. It’s a new algorithm. Panda and Penguin are parts of the bigger algorithm. Hummingbird is the actual bigger algorithm. Google has been around for fifteen years now, and Hummingbird is apparently the biggest thing they’ve done to the algorithm in twelve.
