Sweet Buns/Bread - Food-Nutrition-Health Seminar Series - Dessert Powerhouses

This week we are creating Sweet Buns - the consistency of soft bread, full of whole plants and oh so yummy to enjoy as a snack. The buns are gooey on the inside and have a distinctly filling bread-like consistency, once completely cooled.


That is, if you can wait that long to eat one! I cannot. I love to enjoy one (sometimes two!) of these sweet creations right out of the over, nice and hot! Enjoy these sweet buns for break-fast or as a healthy snack during the day, knowing that your sweet tooth is being satisfied with whole plants, which contain plenty of fiber and nutrients for your digestive 'critters' to enjoy!


Bread on the outside - Ooey-Gooey on the inside!
