Healthier baked goods and sweet treats

Are you looking for a sweet treat that won’t compromise your wellness goals, but don’t have the time to decode baking substitutions yourself? If so, you are in luck! We’ve compiled a great list for you to try. These healthier dessert recipes will contribute nutrients to your diet rather than being a source of empty calories. However, they’re still best enjoyed in moderation.

Black Bean Brownies – Your guests will never be able to guess that there is no flour in this tasty recipe. The chocolate hides the black beans really well.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies – Avocado takes the place of most of the butter in this delicious recipe. It also adds lots of moisture.

Lemon-Scented Blueberry Cupcakes – This recipe calls for blueberries, which allow you to minimize the sugar content. Make the cupcakes even healthier by using whole wheat flour.

Cherry-Almond Crisp – The bulk of this dessert is a delicious mixture of cherries. It also provides you the nutritional benefits of almonds and rolled oats.

No-Bake Peanut Butter-Chocolate Bars – This quick and easy recipe calls for Greek yogurt and all-natural peanut butter.

Cheesecake with Tomato-Vanilla Jam – Unlike traditional cheesecake recipes, which often contain unhealthy fats, this delicious cheesecake recipe uses the healthy fat of avocado.

Carrot Cake – This healthier carrot cake uses bananas and dates to replace the sugar without compromising the taste.
