2 Minute Baked Caramel Brownie Balls

I messed up and I am so sorry! I spent yesterday being a person I really don’t want to be. I didn’t give you what you need or what you deserve.

I was exhausted, I was short tempered and I was irrational.

I went to bed consumed with regret.

Today I promise to be patient, calm, compassionate and loving.

Today I promise to focus on you and not on me.

Today I promise to make things right.

Even on my bad days when I rant and rave and lose my cool, I always love you my precious, perfect big girl.

Even when I’m expecting too much of you, I’m always so proud of the caring, kind, helpful and intelligent girl that you are.

Forgive me Lu. I promise to go back to being the Sun in your day and the safe place to rest your head.


2 Minute Baked Caramel Brownie Balls

  • 1 cup cashews
  • 10 medool dates, seeds removed
  • 1/2 teaspoon concentrated natural vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  1. Line a plate with baking paper.
  2. Place the ingredients into your processor and blend at high speed until the mixture resembles a fine, sticky crumb. Use your hands to press and shape the mixture into balls. Place the balls onto your lined plate and into the microwave.
  3. Bake the balls for 2 minutes. Cool the balls on the plate for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  4. Eat and enjoy!

note – these are delicious at room temp, from the fridge or straight from the freezer.

To bake these in the oven preheat the oven to 175°C and cook the brownies for 10 minutes or until golden.

      Well said! I couldn’t agree more x

    • Thank YOU Jodie. I really appreciate that. x

    I’m sure you never stopped being her Sun.
    And this is an amazing recipe. My little man will be lucky to get some before my husband and I eat them all. Luckily they are so quick to make! Thank you for the Wholefood Simply treat I was craving tonight.

    • Thank YOU and no worries!! I hope you enjoy them. x

  • I totally understand how you feel. I reckon you summed up how every mum feels reasonably often, when we have the wrong reaction on the spot without pausing to consider why our child has behaved the way they have. I felt like that yesterday when my eldest son (5) refused to go into his swimming lesson because he had just moved up classes the previous week and he liked his new swimming teacher but she was unfortunately away for his second week. So there was a stand in teacher who seemed really nice, but the only two other children in the class were much bigger than him and he was just really aprehensive and frightened of the unknown, basially. Instead of saying, “OK, never mind, we’ll just give it a miss this week,” I totally guilt-tripped him, saying how expensive swimming lessons are, how he was wasting my time etc. And all the while, I know I was taking the wrong approach. I apologised later on and felt very contrite, but I hate how it’s so easy to react in the wrong way, often deliberately because we have been inconvenienced. Anyway, I love the recipe and have the minimal ingredients in my kitchen, so will try and give it a go this week 🙂
