    Blogger of the Day: Katie at kokonut kitch

    Brazil nuts are a yumfully natural nut with a different twist. They’re not harvested like other nuts, which are most often grown on farms. Brazil nuts can only reproduce with the help of orchid bees so Brazil nut trees can only grow in forests where these orchids are found. Harvesting is done by hand, providing jobs and boosting the local economy…yay! The high fat content of Brazil nuts makes them perfect for baking into sweet treats, mixing into nut burgers and topping off casseroles…and covering with chocolate too! 🙂

    Katie’s an Aussie blogger with superawesome skills when it comes to vegan baking! Check out these Braziltopped muffins, then go visit her site…she’s got a pancake cake post up that will spin you silly with an instant sugarcraving! 🙂
