Raw Fudgy Bites

Fudgy Bites 1

What happened here was a little naughty. I turned a perfectly decent brownie recipe into a show-stopping-standing-ovation-worthy choco-sensation. Ladies + gents… well more like gent’ (Hi baby, I made you Raw Fudgy Bites for dessert!), feast your eyes +  weekend appetites with this soooo-good-it-should-be-illegal Raw Fudgy Bites recipe.  

This batch makes 32 squares, enough to keep me sane + happy as I finish writing the copy for Life is Messy Kitchen… well, more like “as I begin writing the copy for Life is Messy Kitchen“. I did Select All + Delete the entire rough draft this Monday. I went psycho killer crazy writer’s meltdown on the project – those where you suddenly accept that perhaps you weren’t meant to abolish world hunger or find a cure for cancer. Tough.

You see, when I sat down to manifest Life is Messy Kitchen, I had big audacious dreams of making Martha Stewart so proud, even though she doesn’t even know I exist, yet. But this Sunday, as I was Googling How To Stop Eating Pizza In 3 Simple Steps, I had a revelation, “I can create The Next Buzz Healthy Cookbook that promises to fix your landfill of issues in one fell swoop, or I can let you see behind The Wonderful Wizard of Oz curtain where sometimes I anesthetize my feelings with Chunky Monkey ice cream, but mostly where I’m trying my very best to be Mayi + re-set my intentions around food with a sense of humor.” I mean, cuz what’s the point in fitting inside your skinny jeans (Wait… do people still wear skinny jeans? No, right? I didn’t think so), if you’re a grumpy Grinch, right?

So how about we cut the crap + drop the #filters + embrace a more humanistic + comic approach to eating + feeling f*ucking A-MA-ZING? Who’s in on this messy adventure? I’m recruiting!

Now, it’s chocolate time baby! Because chocolate does’t ask stupid questions, chocolate always understand.


  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond butter
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (honey works too!)
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin coconut oil
  • 1 cup old fashioned gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (shredded coconuts works too!)
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Step 1: Melt together in a medium sauce pan the almond butter + maple syrup + coconut oil over medium-low heat until velvety smooth.

Step 2: Remove from heat + add oats + coconut + cacao powder + vanilla. Stir until well combined.

Step 3: Pour into a parchment lined loaf pan + pop into the fridge for an hour.

Step 4: Cut into squares + store in the fridge in an airtight container until ready to plate. Or don’t even bother with plating, I just pop em’ into my mouth (wink)!
