I have always had a sweet tooth. My main love is chocolate, but I embrace most delightful treats. Unfortunately, as soon as the scrumptious desserts hit my lips, it’s as if they magically transferred right to my stomach and thighs; the two parts of my body that I can’t stand the most. Im currently in the midst of working to tone my legs and flatten out that little pooch we all hate so much.
I’ve recently discovered some desserts that I am able to make quickly and easily. They are raw, vegan, gluten-free, and yuuuu-mmy!!
First up are brownies. I’ve made this recipe twice already and just love it!
No Bake Brownie (vega recipe)
Personally, I prefer to stick my brownies into the fridge and eat once chilled. I find that this helps to keep the mixture together better. Since they are raw brownies, they tend to crumble easily. I also noticed that once they have been chilled, the taste is better and moister.
The first time I made these, I had just under a cup of walnuts and the consistency was a little more doughy. Even so, they taste just as yummy the second time!
Personally, I don’t even cut these, I leave them in my dish and when I get a sweet craving, I pop the lid off and take one or two bites with a spoon. It’s just enough to keep my sweet tooth satisfied. This way I’m not over-doing-it and still have some left over. It lasts a few days!
Good Girl Vegan Fudge (chocolate covered katie)
This stuff is delicious and very rich! And dare I say it, good for you! Check out some more info on coconut butter here.
Now I know you won’t believe it, but I’ve been able to snack on these yummy treats everyday, YES-EVERY DAY, since going raw and I am still loosing weight!
Try them out and until next time…..
Happy Sweet Treats!
