You’d never guess these holiday treats are sugar-free
The holidays bring a bevy of baked goods, an avalanche of chocolate confections, and sweet treats galore. Resistance is futile. And when holiday goodies are made with healthier sweeteners and taste just as good as (if not better than) those made with refined white sugar, why should you resist them? These tantalizing treats are sweetened with natural alternatives, including xylitol, brown rice syrup, stevia, and raw honey, so they only feel like guilty indulgences. Healthy holidays!
