Just because they have healthy ingredients doesn't mean they are calorie free, self!?? I can't help it, these no bake brownie like things that I made up are so good!!!!!! They fall apart a little, but I packed the mixture down into a glass baking dish, with another flat bottom glass dish and it worked pretty well. ?? Dates, walnuts, chia seeds, honey, peanut butter, coco nibs, coco powder, cinnamon, coconut, and chocolate @purleyinspirednutrition protein powder.
