Lazy Bars

Who knew you could bake in a microwave? Not I!

That is, until one day I decided I was too lazy to carry my supplies down to the kitchen to bake. I just wanted something with chocolate and coconut, but I didn't want to have to leave my dorm room.

So I started mixing together ingredients. Not exactly measuring, just throwing stuff in a large glass bowl and mixing it together. Then microwave. Then add topping. Then microwave again. And you know what?

It worked.

Now, I realize the microwave is NOT the healthiest way to cook things. But for college kids, it's quick and easy. And that's all that matters.

Lazy Bars
Ingredients (Base):
1 c. flour (Use brown rice flour if GF)
1/2 c. brown sugar
3 T. almond milk
1 t. cinnamon
5 T. Earth Balance

Ingredients (Toppings):
6 T. chocolate chips
3 T. crushed raw pecans
4 T. pumpkin butter
2 T. unsweetened shredded coconut

1. In a large glass bowl, combine all of the base ingredients. Mix well. Using a spoon, spread the dough all around the edges of the bowl to form the cookie bottom. Microwave for 3 minutes.

2. Remove from microwave and sprinkle with chocolate chips while still warm. Add pumpkin butter, crushed pecans, and coconut. Microwave for another six minutes. Remove and allow to cool.

3. Eat with a spoon right from the bowl!
What do you make to eat on a day when you're feeling lazy?
