Possible Future Advocate for Raw Food
I have a fascination with raw food. I just think it's super awesome and convenient. Cookies in 10 minutes? No problem. Brownies without waiting for them to bake and then cool? Your wish is granted. Raw food is really neat—and delicious, which is the most important thing, in my opinion.
The recipe is from Oh She Glows, and I must say that I am a big fan. I did not use medjool dates, though. I know everyone says they are better, and I'm not doubting that, but they are expensive and I just happened to have Tunisian dates on hand so I subbed those in double for the gigantic-o medjools. If I had to pick one negative thing, it's that I found the base a little too salty, so next time (and there will be a next time) I would cut it down a bit. Then again, I don't like anything salty, so I could just be picky.
Now, I would like to take a moment to just say how much I love coconut oil. I have been using it in a lot lately, like in these squares and the gluten-free, vegan cake I mentioned yesterday. I have a feeling it is going to end up a staple in my kitchen. Anyone have a favourite recipe they use their coconut oil in? I will probably start hoarding them... as if I haven't already started.
If you are wondering if I am ever going to get around to actually posting a recipe the answer is yes. I will get right on that as soon as things slow down a bit. And then I'll be posting so many recipes you won't know what to do. Except to become a recipe-hoarder like me. Hah!
