These are fudgy, chocolatey and wonderful . . . and filled with nutritious ingredients! I did not devise this recipe; I found it on Chocolate-Covered Katie’s blog. I made them using the substitutions she mentioned, and they were delicious! Even my non-vegan friends and family enjoyed them. I hope you do, too!
