I’m trying not to be the mom who wards off sugar like it’s the devil. I’m laid back.
Today, a new friend we met at the park shared her snack with Ian that consisted of
blue gummy animals and Jif peanut butter, which I’m pretty sure lists peanuts after
corn syrup. His first fructose experienced. I hardly flinched.
In our day to day, I don’t offer sugar. He didn’t even have sugar on his first birthday.
I made coconut flour blueberry muffins with maple syrup sweetened whip cream
(amazing recipe found here)
Lately, I’ve been baking more (HELLO Fall, I love you even though you don’t feel like
a proper Michigan Fall), and my sweetener of choice is raw honey. I used to believe
that sugar is sugar is sugar, but I will say when I have treats that are sweetened with
good quality raw honey, I don’t have any sugar crash or mood swing yuckiness that
can happen with true junk food. Bonus.
This week, the whole family enjoyed almond flour biscuits (which I baked in a cake
pan because I’m that lazy) and strawberry jam, both sweetened with honey. Perfect
for breakfast or snack time. Enjoy!
