Finding “healthy dessert recipes” can certainly be a challenge. In fact, it’s a challenge to develop recipes that are both tasty and healthier than typical desserts.
Of course, one option is to severely limit your “treats” to very special occasions and just eat whatever dessert you want on those occasions. That’s perfectly fine with me.
The other option is to find a some healthier versions of desserts that you can have a bit more often than just special occasions. That’s what this healthy dessert recipes blog is all about.
These 10 healthy dessert recipes are not even all of the recipes we have in our database that fit this description. These are just 10 of my current favorites as I’m writing this blog. You can check out all of the healthy dessert recipes in our recipe search section under “courses” and then “desserts”. Just click “Recipes” in the main menu on the site or here is a direct link.
What makes them "Healthy Dessert Recipes"?
