The other day my mom had some friends over and I am always on baking duty. I feel proud to say that they always look forward for my “crazy” ideas.Picky eaters are the best judges! My moms friends are mine! today I sneaked some zucchini in this recipe, used coconut sugar and pili nuts.
Did I get asked for the recipe? YEP! And here it is for you too!Some people are not used to having veggies, or trying new ingredients on their baked goods! And even try to sneak some veggies! I love making this healthier recipes to prove that you can eat healthy and still enjoy all the flavor, it's not boring or bland at all! You just have to choose the right ingredients!
