Enjoy feeding your loved ones with our Polenta Cake Hearts. This delicious treat is perfect to expand energy and nurture nourishment for all.
The recipe is beautifully sweet and yet free from any sugar, baked flour or dairy. The recipe uses rice syrup which is made in a natural process from the whole rice grain and still contains vitamins and minerals, unlike ordinary sugar.
Using the complex sugars from grain malts and syrups is so much better for you since not only do you avoid all the ill effects of simple sugar intake, but these complex sugars are broken down and released into the blood stream more slowly giving you more sustained energy as well as easier digestion.
