Are you a fan of carob? This CAROB COCONUT BARK is super easy to make and good for all stages of the diet. It's a great sub for chocolate when you can't have cocoa, or just want a break from it. :) bit.ly/carobcoconutbark

Crazy Brownies from +Dreena Burton 's latest, Plant-Powered Families. I love me a good brownie--and this is IT! I think she meant, "crazy GOOD!!" :D 
Crazy Brownies - fudgy, dense, and sweet - these will be your new favorite! These rich chocolate gems have an unbelievably healthy ingredient list - enjoy!

Great topic and great author! 
 
Parenting is challenging under any circumstances, and when you're vegan, and trying to raise your kids vegan in a non-vegan world, there may be even more challenges. This week we have vegan mom and cookbook author +Dreena Burton with us to talk about vegan parenting and Plant-Powered Families. First I'd like to throw a question out to our readers: how many of you are trying to raise young ones vegan, and what are some of the challenges you face?

And I also have a question for Dreena: in the book you address challenges that many vegan parents face, and suggest solutions too. Can you share one of the more prevalent challenges with us – and the solution too?
