We all have those cravings we wish we didn’t have. When you’re sitting at your desk and all you can think about eating for lunch is a piece of cheesecake. Or when you finish a scrumptious meal and want to tuck into a tall piece of chocolate cake. Dessert doesn’t always have to be a mental battle of doing the right thing! Satisfy your sweet tooth with some decadent desserts that spare you the guilt and fill your belly with sweetness.

1. Raspberry Cheesecake Bars

Cheesecake can be a major source of guilt when it comes to dessert time. Don’t worry though, we have your back! This cheesecake bar will satisfy your sweet tooth and fill your body with some delicious fruit.

2. Coconut Oil Fat Bombs

These mini desserts make an excellent snack to serve alongside any other dessert or to pack in your lunch for work. They are packed with lots of good fats for your body and will give you energy to get through that long dinner party you are hosting on Friday night.

3. Angel Food Cupcakes

This is almost too good to be true – almost angelic! Use a regular angel’s food cake mix and whip these extremely low calorie babies up last minute for a light dessert.

4. Brownies

…and there’s only 4 ingredients. Eating brownies doesn’t always have to mean filling up on a calorie dense dessert. With this recipe, you’ll be able to chow down on your favorite treat and even go back for seconds!

5. Chocolate Mousse

Here’s the secret that no one in your family needs to know: It’s creamy because of a little thing called Avocado. Yes, that’s right, you are going to fool your entire family into thinking they are eating a milk based product, when really, it’s avocado! Good luck and let us know if anyone notices a difference!

6. Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Whether you’re serving this as a snack or as a dessert, Banana Cake always makes your guests smile. Leave off the icing for a casual snack and add it on to dress it up for a special occasion!

7. Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal Cookies

When I eat cinnamon rolls, the point isn’t to look at the calories. But sometimes I do, and then I never buy the Pillsbury “Cinnabon” buns ever again. And I’m sad about it. But with these mouth watering Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal Cookies, I think I’ve found a great alternative.

8. Apple Nachos

How easy is this?! This is the kind of recipe that we all love because it’s a grab-anything-in-your-cupboard kind of delight. Stun your family with this fun and healthy dessert/snack that is doused with all that is good in this world. To avoid peanuts, use almond or soy butter. I promise it won’t taste identical but it will do the trick.
