It’s a cookie! It’s a power bar! It’s super squares!
I really didn’t know what to call these when I created this recipe late one night when I wanted a big spoonful of cookie dough but also something nutritious, sweet and sensible that I could take traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday. These are so nutritious that a couple of squares count as a square meal or snack chock full of antioxidants, resveritrol, protein, and just plain deliciousness!
Many raw foods have methyl groups which combat toxins. (cooked foods do not) Goji berries contain CH3 (three methyl groups) which is excellent for cleansing toxins and bad estrogens. I include goji's in as many recipe's as possible. Nutritionally, goji's "pow, bam and zonk" all over raisins or cranberries.
So be a man or woman of steel and make these super squares!
