I wanted something sweet for dessert the other night, but I didn't really feel like having chocolate. I know, shock of all shocks, right? Anyone who's been reading this blog knows that I'm a choco-holic if there ever was one.
But this particular evening, I wanted something a little different. I came across this recipe by way of Pinterest, and, as always, made a few of my own modifications. The result? My sweetness craving was totally satisfied.

Of course, now that I've stopped eating all forms of refined sugar (a natural consequence of cutting out processed foods), I have rediscovered the inherent sweetness in many natural foods, like bananas. It's amazing how refined sugar can wreak havoc on your taste buds. Incidentally, now that I haven't been eating refined sugar on a regular basis, the odd time that a refined sugar treat slips in...I actually find it bland now. Weird. But that's another topic for another post.
Back to this awesome dessert recipe. I found the original recipe HERE. But I made some of my own modifications. It was mainly because I didn't have any coconut milk on hand, and I realized I didn't need the coconut oil. The butter and maple syrup were plenty.
