Dreams are so weird. Well, mine are. Since I’m really weird. I had almost a nightmare the other night. Let’s psychological babble this stuff out. Ok, so Laura went out on the town on Saturday night. As did I, BUT I got home by midnight. So I passed out far before she got home. So when I heard her come back in the house, I woke up for a brief second then passed back out. Well I’m guessing this little awakening led me into a frightening dream. Here we go. So I dreamt that Laura came in the house with 5 or 6 friends, I got nervous they would come into my room so I got up, ran to my bedroom door to shut it, then fell head first into my hamper, butt.ass.naked. All her friends saw and stared at my bum and the goods as I flailed around hoping to get out of the hamper. Thank god none of this ever happened.

After all this jazz of a dream occurred, I woke up. And I woke up with a vengeance. I woke up choking. I think I literally scared the air out of myself. Straight up no air into my lungs. I couldn’t breathe. I sounded like a bugel horn. I don’t know what that sounds like. But that’s how I imagine it. Took me about 30 seconds to be able to breathe again. Then I sat there, frightened by the sound of myself, on the end of my bed, wondering what the f*ck just happened.

That story sucked.

I figured something out. Something I kind of already knew. Whole Foods on a Sunday night. OMGhotdudes. I stood in line and pretty much checked the guy out behind me approximately 46 times, none of which he noticed. I suck. I see why all the women in Whole Foods wear heels while at the store. They’re on the prowl. I need to work on what I dress myself in. I had a headband on, with spandex, no makeup, searching for some sort of delicious source of fat. That wasn’t covered in chocolate. I miss you chocolate. Only 3 more weeks.

OMG I’m excited to find out what the 3rd wod is for the CrossFit Open!! Are you?!

    Made these for dinner for Easter – thought it would be nice to have dessert but didn’t want to go over the top with all the other treats the kids will be eating. These were perfect, very sweet and very easy to make, we loved them.

    I substituted sunflower seed butter b/c we can’t have nuts which I guess doesn’t make them Paleo anymore, but they were still awesome!

    Saw these in your cookbook (which I now have and LOVE)! Made them today and….OMG!! Scrumptious!! Big hit with me, hubby and 21 year old son! Thank you!

    These are so good! Such a yummy indulgent Paleo treat. (:

    These look so good…Like apple pie. I want them. Sadly, I am food processor-less for the next four months. Damn.

    I made these bars last night. They are beyond awesome!! I didn’t have enough almond butter so I used no sugar added cashew butter and I used up the last of my walnuts so I went for the pecans instead. Incredible texture and flavor! I have your cookbook, which, btw, is beautiful and mouth-watering. and I can’t wait to try all of your recipes. I love your website and blog too. You always make me laugh out loud with your sense of humor. Keep on sharing and spreading the smiles. You’re awesome!

    Hi Juli! I made this recipe last night and while it turned out AMAZING I had one question. When I went to cut into squares the form didn’t hold. We literally we eating it out of the pyrex with a spoon (which was still COMPLETELY AMAZING). What should I do differently next time? I kept it in the fridge overnight as well.

    1. juli says:

      hmmmm that is strange. you should try putting it in the freezer. with the amount of coconut oil and coconut butter that is in the dish, it should stick together pretty firmly.

    I made these for Thanksgiving. They taste amazing! I think I must have overcooked the apples or something, though, because they looked…grey. The whole thing looked grey and unappetizing. Which meant lots of delicious leftovers for me! Next time I would buy very bright red apples if they were available (selection was limited in Korea) and cook them for less time.

  8. Ashley says:

    I’m embarrassed to ask this but what is the difference between coconut oil and coconut cream concentrate? Thanks! I still made these not knowing the difference and LOVED them.

    1. juli says:

      no difference!! same thing 🙂
