I define "craving" as the intense desire for a particular food (like chocolate around TOM) that ONLY that particular food will satisfy.

Last week I made a nut flour pumpkin bread. It was BARELY sweetened with two teaspoons of monkfruit liquid. But I couldn't leave it alone and ate the entire loaf in two days. Of course, part of the attraction was the very breadlike texture (a quick bread) and the mouth feel which was very much like a "real" pumpkin bread. Not making that again for quite a while.
This is probably not the right thread to ask for this recipe, huh? But I'd love it if you are willing to share!
