Healthy Desserts Recipe Archives

If you are trying to eat healthier, improve blood sugar, lose weight, or avoiding specific ingredients like flour, we have healthy desserts for you!

There is no sense in trying to deny cravings for sweets and treats forever. Willpower is finite and we will eventually either cave and eat a whole tray of brownies, or we will be sad. No one deserves to be dessert-starved!

This Luscious Raspberry Dessert Hummus is a unique dip/ healthy dessert that you can send guilt-free in your kid’s lunchbox or snack on at any time. It is sweet, creamy, and tart and full of nutritious goodness. This recipe was also featured on She Knows!

Since I enjoy turning any…

With black bean brownies, you really don’t have to worry about that so much. They are high in fiber, so more filling than a regular brownie, plus they are much healthier so you…
