Whoa, I am so stoked you posted this recipe, Jan! I think it passes the test for October Unprocessed, so I'm thrilled, obviously. =)

Oh yeah baby! I second that! These looked so good they stopped me in my tracks. As a diabetic I am always on the hunt for recipes I can use that will still taste good. This may have some sugar but I think I could get away with it.
I have now bookmarked you to come back and see what other yummy things I can find!!!
thanks again.


Any idea what I could sub for the hot coffee? Is it's purpose just for liquid and the flavor? I'm wondering about the caffeine for little ones. This recipe looks fantastic, I'm loving the whole wheat and maple syrup for the natural sweeteners. I'll probably do coconut oil and coconut milk for the canola and milk source. Thanks again!

Hi Courtney! Coffee really enhances the chocolate flavour and I almost always try to put it in any chocolate baked good. If youre nervous about using it, I might suggest just replacing it with more milk or a milk replacement. Let me know how it goes with coconut oil/milk if you give it a try.

Thanks, Deb! I hope you enjoy them....


Cool. Looks so yummy and tempting. Too good.

They're whole wheat so they're kinda healthy, right? Look fantastic!


Hey, you have such a fascinating site, on this one! And I have a question for you. Is it a premium blog theme which you purchase online or you used a regular one?
