Raw Chocolate Coconut Brownies (Total Time: 55 minutes, Prep time: 10 minutes, Makes: 12 bars)
If you’re looking for something rich and decadent, make these. I came up with this recipe late one night when I was really craving chocolate, then I ate all of them within 24 hours because they really aren’t that bad for you! One of my favorite things about these bars, besides the double chocolate layer, is the mix of creamy, crunchy, and gooey textures. I recommend making these bars and letting them sit in the freezer while you go work out. When you get back, you’ll have a delicious treat that will satisfy your afternoon sugar cravings.
