Snickerdoodle Blondies GF, Flourless | Re-Blog } In time for Thanksgiving

Always on a search for alternative recipes for all occaisions. I can’t settle for the usual flour-full, nutrient-deficient treats—ever.

I love raw food treats but cannot possibly please everyone in my family with them, nor can I go out and buy boat loads of nuts and dates to make all of the raw food desserts out there (but I do amap (as much as possible)).

 I like the creativity in this recipe. It is like a twist on the black bean brownie; seems like a recipe that may have just popped into her head while waking one morning—that’s how it happens to me.

I am a recipe creator, too, but I must give credit to DAMY Health for this one. This recipe is  mildly adapted from her recipe for snickerdoodle blondies.

Here you have agreat way to increase the cinnamon in your diet since it helps defeat diabetes by balancing blood sugar. It also helps preserve food and  beat bacteria that causes stomach ulcers and stomach cancer. With 2-1/2 tablespoons for the whole recipe, that’s more than a 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon per square.
