You are totally a blog crush of mine, haha, I’ve been following your posts on my reader for a while now =) Thank you for the wonderful comment, and I will continue to admire your photos and recipes =)

  5. I had this for breakfast this morning, and it was delicious! I almost felt like I was eating a peanut butter cup! I made a couple of slight changes in the recipe based on what I had, and it worked beautifully. I only used 2 Tbs. of cocoa powder (all I had left), and I substituted soy milk for the almond milk. I’m definitely going to make this again soon.

  7. Hi, I have Stevia not Truvia packets. How much Stevia should I use in place of the packets of Truvia please? Thanks!

  8. Wow! You are REALLY into self-actualization, aren’t you? Do u ever sleep? The recipes get better and better and you get more and more gorgeous!!

  9. Wow, this is so tasty! I am eating it for lunch with an apple. It is delicious. I made it with home-made oat flour, blending oats in my blender till they were a flour 🙂 , and then it was still so good!

    Maybe home-made oat flour was a bad idea, but it did the job!
