8 Healthy Holiday Desserts

8 Healthy Holiday Desserts

My idea of desserts are somewhat unconventional (i.e., they’re usually a much healthier variation of the traditional recipe and almost always gluten or dairy-free). Through recipe testing, I have learned however, that opting for non-traditional ingredients doesn’t necessarily equate to cutting back on flavour!

These holiday desserts are just as sweet, just as decadent (especially the chocolate ones) yet still healthy…which means you can enjoy as many as you’d like (well, maybe not the entire batch!) and breathe easy knowing that the overwhelming guilt that usually results in stuffing your face over-eating sweets during the holidays just might not creep up on you this holiday season!

Here’s a recipe round-up of some of 8 healthy holiday desserts that my family loves:

  • I am going to be doing a lot of cooking this week. I want to try your recipes myself (I usually just pass them on to my aunt). But, since I am on vacation now I’m going to try these myself. Wish me luck. 🙂
