These little bundles of joy are high in fat, but beauty fats, as I like to call them. I'm not a fan of high oil content outside of good quality coconut oil and olive oil, and I typically don't like eating lots of nuts at a time .. unless they are high in Omega 3s. So these are a sort of extra treat because I'm making something I wouldn't normally eat AND they are packed with all the good stuff. YES!

AUTHOR & RECIPE DETAILS

I am the girl in the Real Raw Kitchen. I'm mostly silly, extremely ambitious, and a Scorpio, which means I'm incredibly passionate about everything. I discovered this lifestyle and immediately fell in love — even became obsessed — and just went into it, full throttle. That's the Scorpio side of me, I guess. The reason I stuck with it is because I started to feel significantly better. Now I hope to connect others to this experience.
