Ok I have to admit that I have a huge sweet tooth. Always have. So when I saw these recipies for healthy snacks, using all natural sweeters, I was skeptical. Even when I was vegan, I never really explored the world of brown rice syrup. But, the chef behind the recipes is also the author of a cookbook we like. And a friend of mine has been on a natural sweetner kick after watching this video about the toxicity of sugar. (Confession: I have not watched the video. I still want to live in denial a little bit. Is that so wrong?)
Anyway, I decided to try it. These treats that is. And, they are very tasty. The top photo shows peanut butter cranberry bars and the bottom photo shows coconut date bon-bons. Those are especially delicious. In fact, they are already gone.
I may not be ready to give up ice cream yet, but I am glad to find some healthier desserty snacks.
