Healthy Chocolate Cake

My hubby loves chocolate cake!  His favorite is chocolate cake with white frosting.  When we stopped eating processed food, white flour, and refined, processed sugar chocolate cake went out as well.

We are happy that chocolate cake is back in our diet!  This cake is yummy!  It is now our go to cake for birthdays.

Healthy Chocolate Cake

Several months ago we were invited to some friends house for dinner and was asked to bring dessert.  We brought this cake.  When the kids heard it was healthy they didn’t want anything to do with it.  Their parents told them to try a small piece.  The kids LOVED it!  They came back for seconds and even thirds!

Healthy Chicken Nuggets

As requested, a healthy chicken nugget recipe the kids will like!  It is so hard to find good healthy recipes that the kids will eat.  The kids are the ones that are the real testers!  I don’t think these chicken nuggets will disappoint!

I gave a few chicken nuggets to my son for my grandchildren to try.  I wanted to make sure kids would like them too.  The report I received is they really liked them and did not save any for their mom to try.  🙂

Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Bars

A couple of weeks ago we were at a neighborhood get together.  Everyone brought a dessert to share.  One of my friends’ husband is gluten intolerant so we were talking about desserts that are gluten free but taste good.  A peanut butter cream cheese cookie recipe was brought up and how good it is.  It did sound really good!  One problem, it has a lot of sugar.  But. . . never fear!  We can fix that!

Cookies are great to take with you hiking.  As you are walking along the trail and you need a pick me up it is easy to grab a cookie and keep on going.  These trail cookies will not disappoint!
