20 Healthier Desserts

20 healthier dessert recipes that are still delicious and will satisfy any sweet tooth!

20 healthier dessert recipes that are still delicious and will satisfy any sweet tooth!Let’s face the facts.. this girl uses a lot of butter and sugar in her baking. So when I thought about sharing healthier dessert recipes, I asked my blog friends for their BEST healthier/skinnier/low fat recipes.

I am a big believer in dessert, so instead of reaching for that brownie or bowl of ice cream (guilty, here!) we can whip up something that’s lighter but still delicious!

Please keep in mind that “healthier” is a relative term depending on what you are comparing it to. In this case, I believe that all 20 of these recipes are way healthier than the 3 layer cake recipes I typically share.

Now there is no reason to pass up dessert ;)
