Almond Cinnamon Pralines

Almond Cinnamon Pralines

You might know that I am not the biggest fan of raw treats. They just feel so heavy in my tummy and I usually prefer baked goods.

But these little treats are so gooey and delicious, also gluten and refined sugar free.
I am sure your kids will love them, if you don’t eat them all up yourself 🙂
