Are you looking for a dessert that’s easy to make and better for you? This is the recipe for you.
An easy one-pot dessert that has restaurant quality taste and flavor. You would never know that this recipe is actually gluten free and low glycemic.

Instead of traditional cane sugar, I used maple and coconut sugar. Both have a lower glycemic index and are better for you than traditional sugar, without having one bit of difference in the taste.

This recipe is perfect for any holiday gathering or to enjoy during the weeknight with your family. It’s so easy you can get the kids involved to help you make the recipe.

Serve this dessert with coconut ice cream, which is plant based, or with your favorite ice cream or gelato.
