Paleo Brazil Nuts, Lime and Hemp Power Bars

Paleo Brazil Nut, Lime, & Hemp Power Bars-4095

I am so pleased to introduce Tessa. One of the first ‘friends’ I made on this crazy thing called the internet. Her website offers endless, seriously ENDLESS allergen free recipes. Whatever allergies you might have, she’s got a recipe that can help. Which is no small thing considering we’re talking about casein, gluten, corn, sugar free and Paleo. Most surprisingly is that there is no shortage of baking and treats on her sight that can fit almost any dietary restrictions. So you can have fun too.

Thank you everyone for welcoming Tessa from TessaTheDomesticDiva.com

Unbelievable Chocolate Coconut Brownies

Is it bad to eat 6 brownies in between lunch and dinner?

It can’t be good right?

Unless of course they are delicious brownies. After all, I have had some bad brownies in my time. Some dried out wannabe version of a brownie. Crumbly, flavorless. or worse, “too sweet they stick to the teeth and I need 2 glasses of milk to swallow it down” brownies. Then there are the failed attempts at making healthy brownies. There are a surprising amount of those out there. Blah. Nasty. I have been not only the victim of said failed brownies, but the creator as well!

As you might already know, not everything I make is considered healthy. Especially when you consider all the different food circles that exist out there. And you know what? That’s ok by me. Everyone’s got their own version of what is healthy. Some say paleo, others say primal, or vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, grain free, traditional diets (WAP), allergy free…the list goes on. Mine is simply to stick to real food/whole food and try for moderation.
