Harvard Sweet Boutique is a gourmet baking company that specializes in handmade and decadent cookies, brownies and toffee. Just before Valentine’s Day, I featured a review of several of their sweet treats.
Low Carb Sweets
With the help of nutritionists at Boston’s Joslin Diabetes Center, Harvard Sweet Boutique recently completed the development of a line of low-carb sweets that uses the same all-natural, high-quality gourmet ingredients found in their regular products. With ten unique sweets offered in 15 different configurations, there are a bounty of options for those seeking delicious, low-carb alternatives to their favorite classic sweets.
They have a scrumptious recipe for low carb peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies and agreed to share it right here. Enjoy!
