Chocolate-Coconut-Almond Squares


These are so yum!  I just have to brag about them!  Chocolate-Coconut-Almond-Squares!
 

Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly oil an 8″x8″ baking pan.


    6 ounces plain yogurt                                                        Mix first group of ingredients all together.                            
    1/4 cup applesauce
    1 cup brown sugar         
    2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
    2 teaspoons agave nectar(recipe called for molasses)
    1 egg slightly beatened

   1 1/4 cups flour                                                                 add dry to wet ingredients, mix well.
   3/4 teaspoon baking soda

  
   1.5 cups chocolate chips (called for butterscotch chips...didn't have any)
   1 cup almonds, chopped                                                   stir in this group!
   1 cup shredded coconut

Pour mixture into the 8″x8″ baking pan.
Bake for about 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the squares comes out clean.
Makes 16 squares.

So these did rise...so I am thinking you could throw these into a muffin tin.  They are very yummy but I did have a few people saying that there was too much chocolate in them!  Too much chocolate!!!  I love chocolate, so to me there is never to much  :)  But it got me thinking, these would taste even better with dried cherries!   or even craisins, or raisins, or what about a seed mix!

The next day...yes I had one for breakfast...They are more moist and so much yummier!  With a chewy texture!

Well I love these and will make again...but with more ingredients to replace some of the chocolate!

Go see what others are bragging about at Show off your stuff at Fireflies and Jellybeans!

I think you have to let your fellow bloggers know, even on a healthy blog, there is no such thing as too much chocolate.

This looks yummy! I'm pretty sure that generally a blondie is a brownie w/o the chocolate in the batter.
