Happy Monday and Happy February 1st.  I hope January was good to you and you are roaring into February like a lion.

January always makes me excited for the New Year, but resuming daily routines and work, and also re-evaluating my diet can make the month exhausting.  When February hits and the newness of the year is waning I can struggle to keep up the diet, organization and workout schedule.

Do you have the same struggle?

Well this year, I am on a mission to really simplify my life, home, and diet.  Less is my motto this year, so I have cleaned out not only my closets, but my pantry.  There is a lot less stuff in both, and it is liberating.

Keep a Well Stock Pantry for Quick Baking Recipes. 

Keeping a pantry with just the essentials means I am cooking with the freshest ingredients.  After keeping a strict diet through the month of January, I was ready for a sweet little reward, and chocolate was calling my name.

These Double Chocolate Strawberry Coconut Brownies were born.  Let me just say right here, right now.  These are the best damn brownies I have ever made.

Once I let them cooled, cut them and tasted them, I knew I had hit a recipe home run.  Those don’t always happen, so when they do, it feels good!  After I wiped the crumbs off my face, I grabbed another square and ran to find my hubby and see if he was in agreement that these were delectable.

Best Brownies I have ever made.  That is quite a statement.

I handed the brownie over and told him I needed his opinion.  His opinion “I am a good woman”.  If that isn’t a glowing review I don’t know what is.  Also, he finished off half of the batch in just a few hours.

These would also be perfect for your sweetie this Valentines Day! Needless to say you know my guy will be getting a batch.

Each square is covered with fresh organic strawberries, and the combo of antioxidant & anti-inflammatory agents found in strawberries is known to fight against the onset of many different forms of cancer.  Since strawberries do not ripen after being picked avoid berries that are partly white.

I hope you try these brownies, you won’t be disappointed.
