i will be eating the best blackberry & coconut squares

So yesterday I made these.  They are the best.  I love them, my son loves them (which is something in itself) and my husband loves them. 

Since trying to be more mindful about what we eat, I've worked out that it's much better to make sweet snacks yourself instead of buying shop bought stuff.  My thinking on this is because if you make cakes and biscuits and all that stuff yourself, you'll appreciate it more when you eat it and therefore won't mind numbingly stuff your face with it. 

Also, shop bought stuff is full of *bad* things.  Things to keep it fresh, keep it looking nice and keep it tasting like you always want more.  I think trans fats are the worst, but as I don't know too much about it all, this article explains it much better.

So, there are now no blackberry and coconut squares left.  The boy took one to school in his lunch box, I had one for eleven-sis, and we all had them again for dessert.
That's the only problem with home baked stuff - gone far, far too quickly.
