This is so good. I was looking for a healthy dessert for Thanksgiving and saw this one with no refined sugar. I made it last night just to be sure it didn't taste like a no-sugar recipe. It certainly didn't. We "tested" it last night and again this morning. I'll have to make another one for tomorrow. I made it exactly as the recipe is written this time but next I will try 100% whole wheat flour.
