Just like I’ve gone ‘bowl’ crazy in the last couple of months (I’ve made these tofu noodle bowls like 237504 times), I think it is safe to say that I am now going ‘bar’ crazy.
When you are mostly eating a plant-based and allergen free diet, bars can really substitute pretty much any of the guilty sweets out there that you can’t have anymore. Like in this case I think it is safe to say that what I made here are literally raw brownies. Fudgy, chewy and utterly sinful raw brownies! I can totally get down with that.
I don’t how they could say that eating gluten and dairy free can be boring (one thing that I know gets boring is the annoying stomach palpitations I get every time I eat a burger). After eating these bars I realized that I most certainly proved them wrong, and its give me great pleasure to know that my meal will never ever be anything but boring (thank the universe for these chocolate chip cookie dough pancakes as well).
These bars super easy to make AND they satisfy your sweet tooth AND you can put whatever superfoods and nutrients you need in one serving to get you going. Like acai powder! I have been putting this stuff pretty much in all my smoothies now (hello blueberry smoothie). It is a little expensive as are a lot of superfood ingredients and powders when you buy them in bulk but it is so worth it cause acai also tastes so good as well!
And an even bigger plus is that acai powder goes so well with chocolate! I was really surprised as I don’t usually like to flavor my chocolate with anything else, especially berry. I am pretty traditional with my chocolate and usually want it to be and only be the main attraction. But the additional flavor of acai didn’t overpower the chocolate at all or make it too sweet like other flavors usually paired with chocolate. I don’t think I will ever warm up to the concept of orange bitter chocolate!
