Healthy Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon rolls are another food I have gone without for a long time.   How could we make cinnamon rolls without sugar?  We have not eaten refined sugar in over 6 1/2 years.  As I get braver and experiment more, I am finding ways to make our favorite treats that fit within our whole foods diet.

When my oldest son was in elementary school he would sometimes buy school breakfast.  A side note: I did not know he was doing this for a long time.  He would eat breakfast at home, then go to school and eat their breakfast if it was good.   I would ask him why the lunch money was going so fast, and then finally the school asked me if I knew that he was eating breakfast at school.  So funny what kids will do.

Honey Caramel Popcorn

My daughter requested that I make some caramel popcorn.   I have already done a kettle corn recipe using honey but she wanted caramel corn.

It took me a couple of tries but I think we have a keeper!

Last week I gave my niece a bridal shower and made this caramel popcorn.  Everyone loved it.  I made a double batch and it was gone fast!

Healthy Apple Fritters

My husband LOVES apple fritters!  I think he loves anything with baked apples.

I use whole wheat flour in this apple fritters recipe.  Sometimes when using whole wheat flour it gives the recipe a heaviness.   I like to use white wheat.  That helps a lot with the heaviness.

The best wheat to use for this is soft wheat.  I don’t have any soft wheat right now so I used the hard white wheat and it works great!

Healthy Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie is one of my favorite pies for Thanksgiving!  It is delicious!

A couple of years ago we had an extended family Thanksgiving dinner.  Of course, there were lots of pies!  We didn’t want to miss out on pie so we brought our own pumpkin pie.

Healthy Apple Pie

Apple pie is one of the most requested pies for Thanksgiving dinner.  Our  Thanksgiving dinner consists of apple pie every year!  My hubby and kids LOVE apple pie!

This recipe is great because we use apple juice as the sweetener.  Fruit juice is sweet by itself so why not use it as a sweetener as well.   Normally you don’t want to drink a lot of fruit juice because it is almost all sugar without much fiber or other nutrients.

Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies

Yesterday I was going to the grocery store and saw an apple stand.  I just had to stop and get some apples!  I love produce stands and farmers markets!  They are the best!  You get fresh apples! Make fresh applesauce!  And buy or make fresh apple cider!

These cookies are great with some fresh apple cider!  Or a tall glass of whole milk!  Yum!!

Chocolate Caramel Bars

One of the things I love is caramel!  I do have a sweet tooth and I love that I don’t have to give the sweets up!  As long as you use raw honey to sweeten instead of refined sugar or sugar substitutes you can still eat healthy.

There are SO many health benefits to raw honey!  I have put together some of those benefits here.
