y'boi doesn't play when it comes to treats,
and after i got deep into a lil gluten indulgence in my treat game,
i was down to get back into some deep new wheatless hottness.
...that's exxxactly what these are.
chocolate and peanut butter go hand in hand forever.
i love 'em both, i want 'em both, and i have 'em both, right here.
unfortunately for any nut-allergy diaper babies,
also, there's almond flour, almond milk, and coconut in there, too,
so they're basically delicious murder bombs for your face.
but, since i'm immune to food alergies, i'll be indulging, and that's a fact.
the chocolate chip sprankles?
on top of that peanut buttery betterthanevercremeforsting??
if you can't hag out with that, you might be an A*-hole.
the frosting was easy:-
3 cups of powdered sugar;
1/4 cup all natural smooth peanut butter;
1 stick of vegan butter;
1 tsp of vanilla;
1/4 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk.
whisked intoa frenzy and fluffed the F* up like a cloud!
the cake batter was a little weirder, but not by much:
GF PB CC CAKE!!
preheat your oven to 370℉
in a stand-up mixer, with the whisk attached, combine:
1/2 cup smooth all natural peanut butter;
1 stick ( 8T ) vegan butts;
1/4 tsp salt;
2 tsp vanilla;
1 cup sugar;
1 tsp xantham gum;
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut yogurt-
blended and mixed and made into a mush, you're halfway there-
1 cup bob's all-purpose gf baking blend;
1/4 cup tapioca flour;
1 cup mama's almond flour blend;
1 cup mini vegan dark chocolate chips;
1/2 cup unsweetened dessicated coconut;
2 1/2 tsp baking powder;
1 tsp baking soda;
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
y'just whip whip whip it good, and aerate the heck out of it,
and then spoon it into muffins lining, in muffin tins, and make it nice.
gluten-free stuff doesn't smooth itself out, so flatten the tops as best you can.
i gave 'em thirtyish minutes. that was enough.
these jauns rose up and crowned and crested and were flipping sexxxy as hell.
which i liked a lot.
they're 0% gritty or grainy.
they're F*ing delicious.
so, like, when it comes to cupcakes?
we win, neighbors.
i tattooed my mom!
my mom, who made it all this time with no tattoos,
and i tattooed her, finally.
that means i have the complete set.
i've now tattooed every single member of my immediate family, including myself,
but with the highlight being my ma!!!.
that's pretty cool.
and it was her first one, (probably her only one)
and at my own studio, too!
that's a huge deal to me.
i'm grateful for the days that unfold like yesterday.
it wasn't all magic and majesty,
but there was more good than bad,
and more people who cared than didn't,
and all of it unfolded along a path i'm prepared to follow to the end,
so as it happens, and it all always really does,
i'm reminded of the people and the places,
the spirit and the memory,
the gratitude and generosity and the togetherness that i get to experience
with the ones who matter the most to me.
then i stuffed my face with more pizza than ever before,
and had a cupcake for good measure.
too much is the right amount,
and i'm more than okay with that;
