Cake Batter Blondies

Roopa There are three class birthdays this week, so clearly, I got volunteered into making three desserts. The first choice was these cake batter blondies from Sally’s Baking Addiction. Originally I was planning on making a croquembouche, but then I decided I should probably pass school. They were a big hit in class, and basically … More Cake Batter Blondies

Brownie Bites

RAW VEGAN BROWNIE BITES Roopa These were quite literally the byproduct of hanger [hunger + anger] + a no refined sugar health kick + an insatiable chocolate craving. I raided my kitchen and scrounged up dates, peanut butter, and cocoa. I put them into a food processor with a bit of almond milk until they … More Brownie Bites

Turns out they started to dry their own dates, and brought some for all of the family when they came back! I’m generally not a big date eater, so I was going to let my mom have at’em… until … More Maple Date Bars

Magic Cookie Bars

Alana Roopa’s birthday just passed, so naturally treats were in order! She requested that I make one of our old favourite recipes, Eagle’s Magic Cookie Bars! This recipe is super easy to follow, and absolutely delicious! Generally there are a few standard modifications that we make to the original. The recipe I used in this … More Magic Cookie Bars
