Raw Coconut Cream Squares

IMG_2496 Many people might feel sorry for me because I don't eat candy bars anymore. Snickers, Mars, Galaxy, you name it. I honestly don't remember the last time I had any of them, and can't imagine eating them again. Instead, I try to always have a healthy treat in the freezer/fridge to satisfy my sweet tooth every now and then, actually more like every day.

With these squares, you can "Treat yo self" without spiking your blood sugar and filling your body with artificial flavors and preservatives making you feel like shit afterwards.


I made these for my friend's birthday surprise and gifted her a couple of  plants because plants rule. So here's an idea for the holidays if you're trying to get everyone on your list. Plants are the perfect gift for anyone! Well, except maybe that uncle who's a frequent flier and barley stays home. Oh and please write them sweet letters. I don't get the point of giving someone something without a card. Cards come first.
