Since Valentine's Day is really just an excuse to celebrate chocolate, we might as well be responsible about it. I made these Paleo Almond Flour Brownies on a whim, and have no regrets.
As a chocolate purist, I elected not to include the raspberries suggested in the original recipe, but the option is certainly there. As they say, you do you. I'm happy to report this recipe came together quickly, with ingredients already on-hand, and a Pinterest-worthy end result.
With weather as hot as it's been, even in the wee hours of morning, the only thing better than a cup of coffee is a cup of coffee with ice in it.
I've been making this cold brew concentrate for several summers now, and it's just the thing when temps creep above the 80-mark and keeping cool is top priority. And with just 2 ingredients, it couldn't be easier to make.
Find yourself a large glass jar, stock on up on some cheese cloth and a pound of coffee, and you're 24 short hours away from a healthy supply of high octane iced coffee concentrate.
Make it: Stir together 1lb ground coffee (I prefer Cafe Du Monde) and 8 cups cool, filtered water. Cover; let stand at room temperature 24 hours. Strain through cheesecloth into a container, pressing on the solids to remove as much liquid as possible. Store in the refrigerator, covered. One batch makes a 7-10 days' supply. Serve it: Dilute 1 part concentrate with 2-3 parts cold water and/or milk of choice; sweeten as desired and serve over ice.
Note: This stuff is strong! A little goes a long way. Play with the ratios to find your perfect mix.
