• Chocolate-espresso Raisin Bars! Posted on April 30, 2013

    Chocolate-espresso Raisin Bars! Celebrate National Rasin day with these rich, bold, and decadent-tasting, yet healthy (gasp!) treats! Oats, raisins, cocoa, brown rice, dark chocolate — can it get more wholesome? Ingredients: 1 c. old-fashioned rolled oats 1 c. puffed brown rice crisps 1/2 c. dark chocolate chips 1/4 c. + 2 tbsp. raisins 1/4 tsp. salt 1/2 c. applesauce 2 tbsp. barley malt syrup (or brown rice syrup or agave nectar) 2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder 1 tsp. espresso powder Directions: Mix all until well combined. Spoon batter evenly into an 8×8 baking dish as neatly as possible: Bake at 350* for about 20 minutes. You will be tempted to bake them longer — like I was: went for 25 minutes — but resist because the texture will be a tad too crumbly if over-baked. For less mess, use a piece of parchment paper (with sides extending out the pan) in the bottom of your dish before adding batter and, once baked, lift the entire square out onto a cooling rack. After cooling, cut into 12 even bars. Photo & recipe shared from: http://masteringpublichealth.wordpress.com/2010/08/04/vegan-chocolate-raisin-espresso-delights/
