Introduction

I will be the first to admit I love traditional baked goods...really love them! The problem is they really have no nutritional value and quite frankly are pretty bad for you as well. They are almost always filled with white sugar, bleached flour, and, personally, leave me feeling quite crumby. ;) So, although I confess to the occasional splurge for parties and social functions, I try to feed my family as sensibly as I can as often as I can. I am always looking for healthier alternatives to 'traditional' ingredients and researching which ingredients pack the most nutritional punch. I carry this into my regular baking as well. Just because something is considered a treat does not mean it can't be somewhat nutritious as well. So throw out that white sugar and replace it with honey, agave, or another natural sweetener, use butter or coconut oil instead of vegetable oil, and find yourself some coconut flour to replace nutritionally hollow, bleached, white flour. You won't regret it and your body will thank you!
