There was a really difficult and busy month. Anna had an  allergy skin test and she is allergic to pollen,cats and peanuts. I was so relived,we finally,found out why her skin is so irritated. As an allergic myself to numerous  of things, I know how to make her understand why she feels sick,and she seems to comprehend!

That was a wake up call for my husband and I. I realize I had to be more cautious with our eating habits.  You see, as I said in a previous post, I love desserts more than anything and with Anna’s food allergy in combination with my gluten intolerance and food allergies I had to change. Therefore,I wanted to challenge myself and try not to eat as many sweets as before,for as long as I can.

Weeks ago,I saw an amazing post from Misfit Baker, No bake peanut butter bars with chocolate ganache, and of course I had to make them! With only few tweaks, I made these beautiful chocolate and almond butter banana cups! I substitute the peanut butter with almond butter and the graham crackers with gluten free oats. The results: outstanding! Even my picky husband loved it! What’s better than banana and chocolate combination?
