HAPPY NATIONAL BLONDIE DAY!
That’s right—today, January 22nd, is apparently National Blondie Day. Since I consider myself a bit of a blondie queen, I couldn’t possibly let it pass by unnoticed, now could I?
I found out about this “holiday” on Thursday night, as I was riding the emotional high that your kind comments lent me. One particular comment stuck out to me. Brenda said:
Now, go dream up some wonderful super easy recipe for me to try out.
So I did. And wouldn’t you know, it was a smashing success on the very first try!
uses common ingredients
works with a variety of substitutions
takes less than 5 minutes to prepare from start to finish
requires only one piece of equipment (food processor)
conveniently makes just one serving
doesn’t require any advance prep
does NOT require baking OR dehydration
provides instant gratification
It also happens to be:
and frickin’ DELICIOUS!
So here it is, folks. This is the treat I spontaneously concocted in my kitchen on Thursday night, thanks in large part to YOU. Consider it my little way of saying “thank you,” again.
A 3 piece layered ice cream cake made with nothing but raw unprocessed ingredients! Chocolatey and rich with a beautiful variation of taste and texture. A nut raisin nut crust is topped with layers frozen banana ice cream, both pure chocolate and a coconut banana flavor with chocolate chunks. Top your cake with raw cacao and chopped pecans to complete the presentation.
Nothing goes better with a warm cup of tea in the Fall than a sweet coconut macaroon especially when it possesses a bright pop of orange like these! Warm them up in the dehydrator for a more authentic macaroon texture and to saturate your ingredients with rich coconut flavor.
This is the perfect salad to ease your way into eating more kale! It's covered in a creamy, tangy mayo and topped with a smoky walnut crumble.
An energy bar made of dates, walnuts, cranberries, flax, and hemp seed.
Having never frosted my raw brownies before, I wasn’t sure what to use. I could do chocomole, of course, but one does tire of the same old recipe. I could do a cashew or coconut frosting, but heck, I overuse those ingredients in my raw treats, too. I thought about using superfoods like maca or mesquite, thought about using banana in some way, and then finally it occurred to me that I did have a can of organic pumpkin sitting in my pantry. Was chocolate and pumpkin too radical of a frosting concept??
A little Googling indicated that chocolate and pumpkin play together very nicely indeed; just check out Isa’s chocolate pumpkin bread if you need proof. I saw it, decided that I had all the evidence I needed to proceed with my idea, and got to blending. This frosting was every bit as easy as the brownies themselves, and honestly, I could easily enjoy it on its own, as a pudding. Seasonal, thick, and just sweet enough, it’s a great way to use up pureed pumpkin that you happen to have on hand, to create a vegan frosting without Earth Balance, and to enhance your frosted treats with some beta carotene.
Let me first tell you these glistening choco-licious balls are super addictive!! Within 10 mins they are ready to be devoured.

Try this guilt free treat for yourself!
