This recipe fits the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle. I have been following this way of eating off and on for over a year and I love it. I always feel amazing when I stay on plan because I don't consume sugar. I always have a lot of energy and my body doesn't feel inflamed. Finding desserts that I love is no problem, however, my husband is super picky and only loves chocolate. So, when I made these, they passed his approval and I also can't keep my children out of them.
