I created these from a flopped Blueberry Dream Bar recipe in which i thought they’d be just as good if i didn’t have the raw dried coconut-WRONG! They had No flavor at all so after 3 servings i threw the whole thing into a bowl with some lemon, cinnamon, nutmeg and agave, rolled them and dehydrated them and they were much better than my beloved Blueberry Dream Bars (originally from Wendy Rudell’s Raw Transformation (original recipe is here). So don’t toss out your mistakes! Learn from them, add to them and create anew!
Sometimes you just want some comfort food. This weekend was one of those times. I woke up on Saturday morning, wondering what I was going to bring to the raw pot-luck that day. My mind was filled with thoughts of easy to make, savory stand-by’s, but nothing jumped out at me. As I looked at the what I had in the cabinets, it dawned on me that it might just be a comfort food kinda day.
I couldn’t be more pleased with how these turned out. Folks at the pot-luck gave them a big thumbs up and of course, the plate was empty when the pot-luck was over. Soft, sweet, chocolaty, just like how a brownie should be, but with the frosting on top, these will take you right into comfort food bliss!
