5 Healthy Dessert Alternatives

If you are anything like me you know that the choosing the healthy life is not always the easiest. You find yourself loosing the foods that you just absolutely love like chocolate chip cookies,

1. No Bake Chocolate-Peanut Butter Bars

2. Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

In this recipe they have you add Oats and flax seeds. This may seem somewhat strange to you, and I thought that way at first also, but it is actually two really smart choices and they are delicious as well!

3. Deep Dish Brownies

Lets face it, brownies are the food to the soul. Brownies are chocolaty goodness that are scrumptious till the very last crumb. This recipe not only tastes like a chocolaty ray of sunshine but it’s actually not that bad for you. Now mind you it is still chocolate, you can only make that so healthy. No this is not a zero calorie brownie but it is am amazing alternative to the real one! Give this a try and remember moderation is key to a healthy lifestyle!

4. Chocolate Mud Pudding

Chocolate Mud Pudding is a great recipe if you are expecting a large number of people, because who can resist warm chocolate pudding? Although this recipe is still made from chocolate so of course it’s not going to be a zero calorie dessert, but this is a great alternative with fewer calories then your basic Chocolate Mud recipe and also uses healthier ingredients. Remember when eating any desserts to eat them in moderation.

5. Sauteed Bananas With a Sweet & Tangy Sauce

Bananas are a huge craze at my house, so naturally I tried a banana dessert recipe. This is one of the best desserts that has ever entered my mouth, ever. The way sauteing almost changes the texture of the banana to a creamy warm center and has a caramelized glaze on the outside making it irresistible! If bananas are a huge hit at your house try this because they are super easy and your kids and you will love them!

Try these great recipes and let us know how they worked for you. Keep living that healthy lifestyle!
