Sometimes you can count on your family 100%.
I can rely on my immediate family 100%.
However, my extended family has their sketchy, unfaithful, stab you in the back group that I have let irk me for years!
I mean, I love my family to death.
But seriously, if you chat w/ me on the phone and say you can’t wait to see me when you get in town after being gone for a year, then you come in months early, tell everyone else, and manage to hang out w/ your friends and not even call your own blood…sorry don’t have time.
Thank goodness I can rant to you guys.
I mean, what are we…in the 2nd grade?
No, I didn’t even act like that when I was little or like…ever.
So, I’ve got some Fredo’s in my fam (um, Godfather ref).
I’m sure y’all have some too.
What’s even worse is I’m not surprised, actually expected it, and have been dealing with this crap my entire life.
Thank God for dessert.
Oh, and chocolate chips.
And I share these blondies w/ all you wonderful people.
Because we have a mutual “I got yo’ back” relationship.
I mean, you know if you needed me, I would come running w/ these blondies.
You knowwwww it.
I would never throw these in your face like I want to with a particular family member right now.
You would never be so busy to not freaking answer the damn phone or even call me back.
I mean, next time, I’ll just make an appointment with your secretary.
Oh ya, I forgot…I don’t give a sh*t.
- 2 large, very ripe bananas, mashed
- ½ c. slightly melted coconut butter
- ⅓ c. pure maple syrup
- 2 t. pure vanilla extract
- ¼ t. baking soda
- ¼ t. baking powder
- ½ t. fine sea salt
- ¼ c. coconut flour
- ½ c. vegan chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips made without any additives or milk
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8×8 in. square baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
- Put every thing except the chocolate chips in a food processor and process on high until a smooth batter forms. (Side note: best thing about this stuff is that it’s vegan, totally eat some of it raw…delish!)
- Fold in the chocolate chips.
- Spread batter evenly into the prepared pan.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bars comes out clean.
- Let cool completely, cut into even squares, and enjoy!
- Don’t forget a tall glass of almond milk goes amazingly well with these!
