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.

Healthy Cinnamon Rolls

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.

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.

Peanut Butter Cookies

I really like peanut butter cookies, especially with a little chocolate!  In fact, I love peanut butter and chocolate!  It is a great combination.

These peanut butter cookies are SO easy to make!  You literally dump everything in a bowl.  Stir with a wooden spoon.  Drop on the cookie sheet and flatten slightly.  Bake and enjoy!

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!

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!

Ginger cookies

Recently  we just had a family reunion and everyone was asked to bring cookies.  Most people like ginger cookies.  They are so good!  Being on a whole foods diet and eating at functions like family reunions can be difficult.  Whenever possible we like to bring something we can eat and something others will enjoy as well.
