For the end of our Biggest Loser training last week I decided to do a cooking demo to celebrate. I had seen this Sugar-Free recipe and wanted to make it a while ago but I never had the chance so I thought now would be a good time. I thought it would be great because it is a dessert but has unusual, healthy ingredients. I could show the participants to try new things because they never know what they might like! It turned out amazing! I made her recipe into balls though instead of a dip so I made a few small changes to it. Next time I make this I will probably take out the chocolate chips and replace them with raisins and add more oats because I loveee raw oatmeal cookie batter!
