Who doesn’t love a good fried veggie at one point or another. While shopping at my local Aldi’s yesterday, I saw that mushrooms were on sale. A thought came to me… Fried mushrooms with ranch sound good. I bought a few packages. Today I whipped some up along with some fried Zucchini.
I used the THM baking blend as my coating. I was worried about how my family would like them. They devoured them! I had to fight them for a few… LOL.
The THM baking blend fries up so crispy.. its so delicious. You can use this batter and coating on just about any
fried veggie or meat dish you want. Its so versatile.
Fried Mushrooms (THM S )
1 package of whole mushrooms sliced in half if huge
3 to 4 eggs
3 squirts of Louisiana Hot sauce (more if you like your food spicy)
1 1/2 cups of THM Baking Blend
salt, pepper to taste
2 teaspoons of Cajun seasonings
Coconut oil for frying
For the batter: scramble your eggs. add Louisiana hot sauce, salt, pepper, and on tablespoon of Cajun seasonings. Mix well. Add in your mushrooms. Let them marinade for a few minutes.
Add your blend to a shallow bowl.. add a teaspoon of Cajun seasonings, salt and pepper.
Dip the mushrooms into the flour mix. Fry…. and enjoy!

Brownies are my weakness! I can eat these babies once a day… I am not kidding you! They make a great snack at work… so that’s the excuse I use when I am making me a batch .
These are very easy to make and use my baking blend. For the Trim Healthy Mama these are a S snack.
1 cup baking blend
3 tablespoon coco powder
1/2 stick butter melted
3 teaspoons of vanilla
1/4 cup of THM sweet blend or 1/2 cup of homemade sweet blend
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 whole eggs
Optional : chopped nuts and plan approved chocolate chips
Pre Heat oven to 325. Combine all the dry ingredients, give a stir or two. Add your melted butter and vanilla. Stir your eggs. Add your nuts and chocolate chips if desired. The batter will be thick! Pour into a 8x8 pan and bake for 15 mins. Don’t over bake! Let sit for a few minutes before you cut.
* Note-- THM sweet blend is supper sweet compared to my homemade sweet blend. You might need to adjust the sweetness to your taste.
Scripture of the Month
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
He is faithful to do all He has promised in his Word. I'm so glad that he is faithful to meet our needs and to give us our wants. There is no one Greater than OUR LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!
