Healthy Treat

Last night I was hanging out at my moms house with some of my family. I was minding my own business, having a pleasant conversation with my cousin, when out of nowhere my DEAR brother jumps in and calls me out about my horrible eating habits. I sputtered… and huffed… and got nervous. It was terrible.

HE. IS. RIGHT.

I won’t fight him on this subject.  I can’t live my whole life trying to explain that eating only carbs and sugars is a well-balanced diet. ITS NOT! Actually I am pretty sure 80% of any health problems I have are due to the fact I eat foods enriched with chemicals and starches. {sidenote: Lately I kind of think all food gives you Cancer! I’m totally freaked out about it.} So in my attempt to prevent my brother from calling out my eating habits, and  getting cancer, I researched some “Healthy Snacks” and found one that is amazing.

Lara Stowell - Oooh that looks SO good. I will definitely be trying that one. I love all those things. Not trying to put a damper on your amazing suggestion but you didn’t list how much sugar is in this treat. I bet it would still taste pretty good if you didn’t use ANY sugar and only cinnamon….

Lara Stowell - Sorry let me clarify. You listed how MUCH sugar but it wasn’t listed in the nutrition facts below in grams. I only know stuff by grams, not by 1/8 teaspoons.

Keighley - I made this (minus the blueberries) when I found this recipe and it was great. Lara I dont know why they didn’t list the grams in the nutritional information. Frankly, I didn’t really listen to any of the directions, I just made it as I went. I didn’t use 1/8 teaspoon of sugar or cinnamon. I took a pinch of each and it was perfect.
