Are you doing your “Happiness Homework”?

Do you ever see someone and wonder… “How on Earth are they always so friggin’ happy”?

What’s up with that, anyway? Are they just super lucky? Nothing bad ever happens to them? Or are they on drugs…in denial…or what? LOL!

Ever wish you could get a piece of that over-the-moon happiness action yourself???

Well, maybe you could benefit from some “happiness homework” as explained in the video below…

INGREDIENTS:

1 tsp butter or coconut oil (for greasing pan) – or use parchment paper instead
1 1/2 sticks butter (or 3/4 cup coconut oil)
1 1/3 cups sugar (Turbinado works well, too!)
1 TBSP pure vanilla extract
1/2 + 1/8 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/8 tsp sea salt
4 eggs, whisked
1 cup almond meal (we buy ours at Costco!)

*Grab yourself a copy of our Grocery Shopping Guide for our tips on selecting the most additive-free versions of these ingredients.

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees, and grease a 7 1/2″ x11″ glass pan – or line with parchment paper, instead – it makes life a LOT easier!

Melt butter in medium sauce pan over low heat.

Stir in sugar. Add vanilla, cocoa and salt. Stir until smooth.

Remove from heat and add eggs. Stir until smooth.

Add almond meal and stir until smooth. Transfer batter to pan.

Bake 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Our new oven only takes about 30 minutes, so watch these closely the first time you make them…and check them frequently!

Cool for a few hours, and serve.

We actually find these more appealing (and sweeter) if they are cooled/stored in the fridge or freezer. The texture is awesome, don’t worry….they don’t turn hard or anything 🙂

Conquer fear like you’re 4 years old!

Do you ever get all wrapped up in worrying about what could go wrong in life instead of just relaxing and enjoying the world around you?

Well… this might be just the trick you need! It seems almost silly, but it totally worked for me as you’ll see in the video below.

Oh, and please ignore the captions in the video…that “Dreamers in Motion” website no longer exists. 🙂
