    Celiac.com 11/09/2016 - I don't know about you, but I am totally getting into the holiday spirit! It has been getting a little chilly at night and the night seems to come sooner and sooner. That definitely means it's holiday season!

    These Hidden Fiber Holiday Spice Cupcakes won't make you gain the traditional 10 pounds of "Santa weight" though and they have the added benefit of helping to keep you regular. A lot of people associate the holidays with all sorts of sweets and treats. I am all for my sweets and treats but I don't like feeling like crap afterwards. That is why I find it so important to come up with healthier alternatives that handle my cravings and make my whole body happy.

    I hope you enjoy these as much as I do and I hope they help you veer away from the dessert table at your work holiday parties!
