REVIEW and RECIPE: Rawsome Vegan Baking and peanut butter bars with chocolate and bananas

This is a peanut butter bar topped with chocolate mousse and bananas. These are amazing and I can't even begin to tell you how delicious they are. They are half my own creation and half of a genius little creation from the mind of Emily von Euw. The recipe is from her amazing new book, Rawsome Vegan Baking, which you should plan on buying right away. Why?

Because she's a genius and the pictures and recipes are awesome. And also, this recipe is in there.

I didn't have the toppings for the peanut butter bars, so instead I topped it with my own chocolate mousse and bananas. It was amazing. It felt like an Elvis-meets-Emily-hybrid-dessert, which is fine because those are the two best things about dessert, anyway.





And the book? Well, let me tell you something .. of all the raw foodies to make a book I think this is the exact person and exact book that should have come together. The pictures are gorgeous, as usual, and the recipes are just so drool-worthy that I felt like kicking myself as I thumbed through the pages (because why couldn't I think of something so fantastic?!). 





They are indulgent, fairly simple, and just beautiful to look at. Divine. The recipes are no exception, either. As is true to her genius brain, the recipes hit on all the marks: delicious, decadent, simple ingredients, beautiful, and creative. They add an edge that seems to be missing in much of the raw food world, right now, mostly because of the creativity in both the recipes and the imagery. 

Her personality shines throughout each recipe, as well. She didn't sell her soul in order to produce a book and she didn't allow a shoddy book for the sake of her own personality, either (a common problem among eager bloggers). Instead, the book so definitely represents her in every capacity all while being a fantastic collection of recipes and photographs. 

Emily was so kind to send me a copy to get a glimpse and I think it's perfect timing since the release date is in March. This is my very first creation based on her original recipe, and I'm excited to bring you more in the near future ..

In the meantime, you can go pre-order her book now!! Support this lovely lady, and support me too ... when you make a purchase through my links I get a miniscule   tiny  small kickback at NO cost to you!
