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.

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.

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.
