No-Bake Brownie Bites with Toasted Coconut

What happens when you come back from a mini one-day vacation and realize there is laundry, shoot prep, food prep, and cleaning that has to be done? No-bake brownies and toasted coconut happen, obviously.

I need to hide these from myself because I'm sure I could eat the entire batch in one sitting.

But first, I should probably get started on that laundry. See you all soon with a crossfit update, life update, and some other fun things!
