Let Them Eat Cake....

Oh My Ouchie Back! Thank you Miss Amy Culp for sharing this wonderful trainer who is killing me (not softly) daily! on another note YAY ....So I have been throwing away all this yummy Almond meal from when I make milk...That is until last night. I was reading in one of my books how they use it as a flour base for Raw cookies. So I went in the Kitchen at 10 pm (when my brain works best) and began creating a kinda cookie/ brownie...I love chocolate so I made it more like a fudge.....then It was kinda heavy so I came up with a frosting similar to one I have tried before with a cashew base! This came out divine! I got the Privilege of sharing it with my friend miss Angelina, who said she liked it so maybe it was good! hee hee I still think I will add more berries next time on top to level it out! But it was still pretty good! My lil Aurora (5yr) ate a whole piece and begged for more, "maybe for breakfast hunny" Hope you like it!

Raspberries and chocolate:
Blend together in blender:
1 c walnuts soaked over night and rinsed
1 cup pecans soaked over night and rinsed
1 cup coconut water
1 cup maple syrup
1 cup Agave
2 teas Vanilla
1 pinch sea salt

In a separate bowl combine:
2 cups almond flour
2 T espresso powder
1 cup cocoa powder

mix wet ingredients in with dry and mix well then add 1/2 cup coconut oil...blend well form into pan ad base or on cookie sheet if making cookies.

For The Raspberry Frosting:
2 cups soaked cashews
2 cups coconut meat
2 cups raspberries
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 cup agave
mix well then add
1/2 cup coconut oil
blend well
Chill slightly before spreading so it is firmer to work with!


  1. Wowza, I cannot WAIT to make this!!! You're amazing!

  2. That looks INCREDIBLE! Totally looks like it should be in the window of some incredible bakery or on a plate in a fantastic restaurant. Can't say I'm bold enough to try it... since I'm only familiar with two of those ingredients, namely vanilla and sea salt... but last year I probably didn't know what sea salt was so I'm growing. lol. I'll keep reading your blog and probably learn a lot!

  3. You are amazing girlfriend!! What will you come up with next...
