Ayurvedic vegan blondies

An Ayurvedic take on blondies suitable for all doshas specially vata and pitta. By using coconut oil and coconut milk, along with dates and two types of cooling sugar this is a great cake for the spring/summer. The wholemeal flour and spices help this sweet treat to be suitable and easy to digest for kapha dosha too in moderation.
