So now that I'm set with veggie burgers for days (truly the recipe that keeps on giving) and don't need to think twice about what's for lunch, the nagging question was, "Well, what then?"
I eat a dessert after dinner most days. I think of it as something nice to seal the meal, so to speak. And since I'm eating it almost daily, I'd prefer it to be something fairly healthy. Sometimes it's raisins or other dried fruit, sometimes it's a mint, and sometimes it's a handful of chocolate chips. I usually prefer it to be chocolate.
Enter the latest installment of Isa Moskowitz's low- or no-oil treats: Cherry Chocolate Chunk mini loaves. She's been killing it lately with her mini loaves and these (which I baked into muffins) are no exception. I love the turn she's taken for healthier baking post-AFR (and post 39) but her wit is still totally intact: These are fun "but not underwear-in-your-purse-looking-for-a-cab-at-4:15-am fun. That’s cupcake fun. Let’s have some loaf fun," she writes.
Frozen cherries are pretty expensive, though, so I bought a bag of "Cherry-Berry mix" from Trader Joe's and, uh, picked all the cherries out. A couple frozen blueberries made it in to the batter too.
They were pretty simple to mix up, cooked quickly, and are awesome eaten warm with the chips still melty. (Okay, so technically I ate them as a mid-day snack and not a dessert. Can you blame me?)
