Strawberry Bread and Bites

January 23, 2013

Sweet & Unique 

I really enjoyed this treat.  I love the idea of using the natural sugars of food products and turning them into something beautiful.  I was trying my hardest to reduce the amount of sugar I was taking in so I was determined to make a range of treats that didn’t leave me wondering if I was eating the best possible meal option.  There is nothing wrong with treating yourself, but during training periods you get a better feeling when you are treating yourself on foods relatively low in sugar leaving you fuller for longer.  My strawberry loaf in really light and beautiful.  It has a crunchy crust and a lovely soft centre.
