Behold...the 'Char Bars'

I did it. I freakin' did it. I made the cookies that are going to make me famous. I thought about everything that could go into a cookie that would make me happy, and thus, my Char Bars were born. My mom is the most impossible person to please when it comes to my raw foods; she's a meat & potatoes girl. One taste of this, though, and she melted. My brother's toes curled, and he got a silly, happy grin on his face. (I help homeschool him, and it's the only way I've found to get him motivated: "I'll give you a Char Bar." He does anything for me now.) My grandma also swooned. Imagine a fudgy, chewy, creamy, & crunchy collection of chocolate & almonds married into a little cookie. I have never, ever, been more proud of a creation.
....Unfortunately, and I truly, truly, feel really bad about this, but I cannot share this recipe; I'm going to try to market it. If you want to buy them from me now, I will be selling them in packages of 3 for $7.00CAN. Char Bars are about 70% raw.

On another note, I wanted to mention something you may find interesting: I am very prone to acne, as I have very sensitive skin. While away in Mexico, due to the drinking, soy, and gluten I was consuming, I started to break out in acne on my chin, and my skin got very dry and flaky. Except for a little "stewp" last night (cross between soup & stew), I have been entirely raw since I've been home. My tummy does not hurt, my energy levels have gone up, I've had no mood swings, and OH YEAH! Clear, smooth skin :)


**UPDATE, MAY 17th, 2009: Char Bars have been lovingly re-named Char Stars, as they now come shaped like stars! Also, there is a new flavour: Cinammon Coconut Almond.
