Does that make you think of Portlandia too?
Today I bring you a dessert that is perfectly sweet, healthy, and comes together in five minutes. I have made these into round bites, and I have pressed them into a pan and cut them like traditional brownies.
As is, they are raw – if you don’t care about that part and want to up the level of decadence, you can coat these bites in dark chocolate, or frost the brownie bars.
As is, they are supremely delicious.
