Cinnamon Bun Bites

cinnamon bun bites with ooey-gooey cashew icing

The day that I made these was a travesty. A loving and beautiful mess. I couldn’t get anything right!

Well, except these … turns out they do taste pretty scrumptious.

Super grateful for my two mega-patient friends, who told me they’d stay as long as it took and helped me with everything. If you were there you really would know … Above and beyond … That’s where they went!

Anyone else woulda left ten times earlier, for SURE! (And I woulda *totally* understood. For real!)

Without further ado … allow me to present … a yummy delicious healthiER holiday treat to whip up for your favorite family and friends.
