Here I go again...trying to make a reasonably healthy version of a "Baked" recipe. This time I was shooting for a gluten, sugar and dairy free version of these cute little valentine treats. By Joe....I think I may have done it!
I substituted coconut oil for the vegetable shortening and butter, applesauce for the eggs, coconut sugar for the sugar, gluten-free flour for the cake flour and unsweetened almond milk for the buttermilk. I decided to just leave off the frosting all together and use a little confectioner sugar sprinkle instead. I also used organic cocao powder for the cocoa.
