I have been looking for some yummy sweet substitutes during for Lent this year since I have been trying to eat no desserts. Less than 1 week left and I think I did pretty good! I use to have to have a bowl of ice cream or a cookie ever night after supper but now I barely crave sugar 🙂 I am definitely ready for birthday cake this weekend but I hope to keep up my healthy habits!
Here is one of my new favorite ‘clean eating’ recipes, I love it because there is no processed sugar or oil! I think it turned out delicious! The bread is super moist and pretty dense, and Cam likes to eat it cold for breakfast and I heat mine up for 15 seconds in the microwave.
SO Good! Enjoy 🙂
