I recently wandered into a French bakery that was just too cute to pass. Pastries are not normally a part of my diet, but it doesn’t hurt to look, right? Well, looking turned into “buying for a friend” and then the friend turned out to be me. And as much as I enjoyed the rare indulgence, the after-taste of guilt was not worth it. So I set out on a quest to create healthy versions of classic French pastries, starting with “Palets Bretons.” The trick is the protein - not only does it enrich the dessert with loads of nutrition, it also satisfies you so you don’t over-indulge.
