Sorry I have not posted in a while!
October is a hard month for me. Halloween is my FAVORITE Holiday.
We do alot this month, it is also my Son's Birthday the day BEFORE Halloween.
We always have fun with it.
And PUMPKIN is back in October. I have done well to stay away from the baked goods.
And MOSTLY the sugar. however I did give in and have a Reese's PB cup, and an almond joy!
I have had my pumpkin Lattes. a few probably had a bit of sugar in the syrup they use.
BUT PUMPKIN LATTE!!!! :)
Went to a few Costume parties and had alcohol. (yes more sugar)
so I am up about 4 lbs. I will get that back off, so I am not too worried.
I have an event tonight I baked sugar free, flour free chocolate cupcakes for.
I made these once and they were WAY too bitter. the main ingredient was 80% cacao powder. and with the stevia it was just too bitter.
So I am trying it again, the cupcakes use ground up black beans and cocoa - no flour.
I am going to make the frosting with coco powder instead of cacao. to cut the bitterness, I will post recipe and photos, IF they come out good. I don't post recipes that I find as failures.
My costume this year, Harley Quinn from the Batman comic series.
