Coffee & Coconut Slice

This is another paleomg.com inspired recipe. Be warned it is very easy to eat. I had to give away half the batch for fear I wouldn't be able to support my body weight in handstand pushups after eating a whole batch.

I like cooking for people, in a perfect world I could charge for this stuff and buy a house and have a veggie patch and I'd be cooking and training whenever I felt like it. That sentence makes me sound like a hippy. I'm not a hippy.

Enjoy this recipe, like the sweet potato brownies, I like these in the freezer. It is hot at the moment and frozen delicious things are an awesome way to finish my day!
