I recently made two desserts for our Invigorate the Holidays Workshop. These two recipes were an exciting find: gluten free, quick and yummy (my 6 year old even gave them two thumbs up). Plus they each are super powered by DoTerra essential oils*.
I'm planning on playing with these recipes some more over the holidays to see how much I can reduce the amount of honey. I often find that I can reduce the amount of sugar/sweeteners by 1/3-2/3. For now here are the original recipes. Enjoy!
One of my favorite holiday treats growing up was Andes chocolates, so chocolate & mint is often a comfort food. Super excited to find this surprising recipe, for when the craving strikes, although I personally wouldn't call them brownies ;)
