Radical Self-Care, “Brownies”

I bet you didn’t see that coming! It’s really important for me to have healthy treats on hand. It prevents temptation to indulge in junk foods that I will later regret. More than a decade of experimenting has taught me that I feel my best when I avoid gluten, dairy, and sugar. As I endeavor to always feel my best, I’ve learned to make fabulous yumminess that doesn’t contain any of those ingredients.

My favorite of these desserts can easily pass as brownies, even amongst non-health-food eaters. They’re often called “bliss balls”, and with good reason!


There are dozens of recipes online with lots of variety, here’s a simple one. You can experiment with spices like cinnamon or ginger, citrus zest, coffee beans, vanilla, or coconut. I’m a purist when it comes to chocolate, so I keep it simple, but that’s just me. Google “bliss balls” or “raw vegan desserts” and you’ll be delighted with the options. These little babies are dense and satisfyingly sweet. I feel energized when eating them and they are the antidote to cravings.

Brownies. Who knew they could be healthy?!?
