WLC Compliant - Date Nut Scones



So many of us struggle with making healthy changes to our diets because we miss the texture of bread, muffins, scones, and other bakery snacks. I am one of those people! Being successful in a new healthy lifestyle is highly dependent on being prepared, so if you have healthy options ready to go, you'll be more likely to stay the course and make decisions you can feel good about (physically and mentally). It does not have to take all your time to prepare these healthy snacks, either. With the recipe below, you can even make a big batch and freeze them for the future. They'll be there ready and waiting to just pop in the toaster oven when you need a bread-like treat! (original post by Alma Schnieder) It is not too late to register for the Whole Life Challenge.
