PEANUT BUTTER!!!&Crazy Brownies.

Okay,so when I was in California I went to Native Foods a bunch of times,a couple times just to get their peanut butter parfaits.Which are
"Creamy peanut butter blend with crumbled Boogies."The "boogies" are "Wheat flour, bananas, almonds, oats, coconut, chocolate chips and jungle vanilla. Take one to go!".
I've had the cookbook for a few years now and there's a recipe in it for the boogie bars.though there's no recipe in the book for the peanut butter blend,it was super easy to figure out.

my sister brought this back for me from NYV.i was so excited.then i saw it at the stores here 2 days later.it took like what,5 years to get the other flavours?jesus.

These are Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies.The recipe is from vegweb,but I ended up not following it because a lot of the comments said that the brownie part was cakey,and I wanted brownies,so I just used the brownie recipe I always make.Then there's a layer of cookie dough.Best part.And a simple hard chocolate topping.Really,really rich and sweet.But that's probably why they're so delicious.

I'm getting a sugar rush just from looking at those brownies! I used to make something like that in my "pregan" day, so I'll be looking for that recipe now

Is that the maple peanut butter I see? YUM! I'm so very envious....

I'm going to L.A. in July -- I will have to make a special trip to Native Foods for that parfait (okay, I was already planning to go there, but now I know what to order for dessert!). All your PB/boogie goodness is making me go crazy!

Good choice on making different brownies - I've had the cakey version and I just ended up eating around it. The cookie dough and the hard ganache are the stars of the original recipe. Yum!
