Pies, cakes, pastries, cookies, muffins, and cupcakes are all a staple in dessert world, and it makes you realize how much we all now rely on flour.
The gluten free craze has spun all kind of new products into society to help people cut wheat out and still eat these desserts. People are trying to cut out wheat because it is the healthy thing to do (I am obviously not taking about people suffering with celiac) and they end up replacing it with new, unhealthy versions of desserts that are void of nutrients, extra fattening and overly sugary. It might be easier to just eat the flour!
I am on a mission to find some great dessert recipes that include lots of fresh fruits and nutrients! Last night I made a super simple dessert of natural organic yogurt, fresh berries and maple syrup. It was just as good if not better than any pie I have ever had.
As the saying goes….”we are what we eat”
