Skinny Saturday: Paleo Pecan & Raisin Chocolate Fudge Brownie Protein Bars

Skinny Saturday
  Paleo Chocolate Fudge Brownie Protein Bars

These paleo bars are (or were!) so nice, I feel I could have entered them into a baking competition.

The chocolate softness from the soft fudge brownies combined with the juicy raisins and crunchy pecans make them seem far too decadent to even begin to be considered healthy but these paleo bars are just that. The key ingredient, black beans, is an ideal alternative to using flour, be it processed or almond!

Give them a go - by clicking here to go to the recipe page - and do let me know what you thought of them.

Happy Birthday, Coco... To Fashion House Chanel's Iconic Founder

Happy Birthday, Coco...
  To Chanel's Iconic Founder

Madame Coco Chanel is as much the style icon today as she ever was, with her trademark pieces remaining immediately recognizable and timeless. 

Born 132 years ago today in a hospice for the poor, Gabrielle Boheur Chanel earned the nickname 'Coco' whilst singing in the French cafés of her era. After the death of her mother when she was just eleven, she was sent by her father to a orphanage where she learnt to sew. 

The rest, they say is history...
