Inspired by Trader Joe's Organic Pumpkin Spice Granola Bark, this is my version adapted and of course...enhanced.
My mom had sent me a picture of TJ's version on instagram and I was immediately in awe. I HAD TO TRY IT!!! I love granola....like....LOVEEEE and well duh...CHOCOLATE who doesn't love that. I knew these would be gone before I had a chance to bring them home. So I solved that problem by creating a homemade version.
Same spicy flavor...Kicked it up a Notch!
Taking a note ...
In general, chocolate is hard to say no to and these soft and chewy cookies will grab you before you even have a chance to escape. The cookie portion is soft and tender on the inside with a gentle but firm crust. The Coconut Cashew filling finishes off the ensemble with a sweet flavor resembling an Oreo cookie cream. All vegan but without the added preservatives. This "open faced" Oreo cookie will be a hit in your household!
I love cherry season!
When these guys come into season, I load up as much as possible and binge till my little belly is popping.
Actually....I basically do that to all fruits when they come into season because....well...I love FRUIT!!
I wanted to create a dish that would incorporate my love of cherries and my love of chocolate....BUT still be sort of healthy. Yea....chocolate doesn't usually scream healthy but when you add some good old oatmeal and fruit then it's okay right??? ...
Does anyone else just need some chocolate in their life like I do?
I may cover all my vitamin and mineral needs through a whole food plant based diet but at the end of the week....a girl needs some chocolate!!! I don't understand people that say they are not chocolate lovers....not only is it super delicious...Dark Chocolate is proven to be good for your health.
I love experimenting with different chocolate desserts but these bites are always my go to for a quick chocolate craving. ...
