    This looks awesome. Great for breakfast or as a snack. Funny you mention the gum, I have been calling it synthetic rubber, because that is essentially what gum is :-). My friends think I am nuts!!

    Have you changed something about your photography setup the last few weeks / months? Like artificial light vs. natural light? The pictures are absolutely lovely! They were lovely before, but they just seem more light and airy now. :) Good luck with your sugar free challenge! I know that you’ll be super successful. I still want to do it, but after berry season. Only I won’t limit my fruit. Need those vitamins. :)

    Sugar free and it looks this good? No way. I don’t believe it.

    Ultra gooey is right! Good on you for embracing this challenge! I had the chewing gum habit after I quit smoking, too. It was super bad. I went to the dollar store once a week and loaded up on pack after pack. You can do it!

    I made this yesterday with strawberries before a big day of biking around the breweries here in Fort Collins, CO. Held me until lunch and absorbed quite a bit of beer! Delicious!

    Wow, that looks yummy. I’m actually allergic to sugar cane. I only found out a couple of months ago. It’s been a hard transition, but I actually feel better than I have in 15 years! I can’t do yogurt or whey protein, either, so I’d need to sort out some substitutions, but I’m bookmarking this to play with it! Making the zucchini fritters tonight, too. :)

    Just wondering how you would cook this in an oven…I kind of avoid microwaves :)

    Love your site. But curious about your stevia aversion. There are natural, 100% pure, organic stevia options (read: NOT produced by Big Ag companies, and not containing industrial sugar alcohols like erythritol) that have been used for decades and decades safely by other countries. Stevia is simply an herb with a naturally sweet taste, but in the pure forms (powdered 100% pure stevia extract), it does have an aftertaste and MUST be used entirely sparingly. It does not bake well nor blend well, without fillers, but is, according to many, the HEALTHY ALTERNATIVE to sweeteners like agave, the latter which can be heavily processed and NOT as good for glycemic response as everything thinks and may even be worse than high-fructose corn syrup….

    I used stevia exclusively for over a year and got all the health benefits, in my experience of not eating sugar at all. (I had no maca, lucuma, brown rice syrup, anything of that sort.)

    Your thoughts?

    This sounds and looks delicious! I will make this for breakfast next Thursday when my sister comes over. I was wondering if I could substitute the egg whites somehow? I would love to make a vegan version. What do you think about chia egg/flax seed egg as a substitute?

    That cake looks great! I’m with you – definitely prefer things on the ‘molten lava’ side rather than ‘drier cooked’. ;] Haha. I was just wondering, could this be made without the yogurt? Or would it change up the texture too much? I can’t handle dairy and prefer to stay away from soy/coconut products so yogurt isn’t a food that I can consume really.

    Wow, good luck with the sugar challenge! It’ll be tough at first, but SO worth it! However, I don’t agree with limiting fruit intake. I think that the natural occurring sugars in fruit and vegetables is just fine. Personally, I don’t see a need to cut ‘em down; they’re full of nutrients that’ll help keep you going. That’s just my intake on it, though. I hope that that didn’t come off as snippy in any way!
    It’s been over two years since I cut out all (added) sugar from my diet. I still consume actual sugar from fruit and the like, but that’s it. It’s really true what they say; the less sugar you have, the less you crave it. So just remember that if you think you might be having a hard time. It’ll get much easier! Also, not to mention the fact that it’s a whole lot easier to drop some weight without changing anything else. I honestly probably lost a good 20 pounds just by getting rid of added sugars from my diet. (of course, that put me under a healthy weight but it’s all good since I’ve restored most of it, heh, through some hard work).

    Good luck again, you can do it! :D

    I just have to throw this out there: I made this for the first time this morning (after staring at this recipe countless times) and it was DIVINE. Oh my goodness, this is how breakfast should be done :) Thank you!
