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.

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.
