    Hello ladies, 

    I hope everybody is doing well. Let’s begin the week with a new recipe. This time, we are going to make a delicious cheesecake!   

    If you have read my previous posts, you have probably seen that I don’t like to use white refined sugar and all-purpose flour in the kitchen. If I have the chance, I prefer to replace them with something healthier. Before the recipe, I want to give you some alternatives for refined sugar and all-purpose flour. 

    Alternatives for Refined Sugar:

    -Honey

    -Stevia

    -Agave Syrup

    -Coconut Sugar

    -Dates

    -Dried Apricots

    -Banana Puree

    Alternatives for All-Purpose Flour:

    -Oatmeal, oat bran

    -Whole Wheat Flour

    -Gluten-Free Flour

    -Brown Rice Flour

    -Rye Flour

    -Coconut Flour

    -Quinoa Flour

    -Chickpea Flour

    -Beans

     

    Some find my search for healthy alternatives boring, but I like it.   I believe it’s possible to eat both delicious and healthy things at the same time.
