  1. These look so good! Can't wait to make these myself, I can't always get my brain to work on how to make up my own recipes. Thanks for linking up to Sunday Round Up!xoxoHeather

  2. I will be trying this one! I'm always looking for ways to make treats healthier. I haven't tried baking with Truvia yet, but with the addition of honey, I imagine the result would be quite sweet. Thanks for the recipe!
